Good, but slow paced...
10 January 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Eye in the Sky" (aka "Gun chung") runs at about and hour and a half, but the movie is directed by Nai-Hoi Yan in a way that it seems like the movie was three hours long. While the concept idea and story was good, this slow pace was a severe anchor weighing the movie down.

The movie does have some familiar faces on the cast list, including two of Hong Kong cinema bigger names; Simon Yam and Tony Ka Fai Leung. But for us familiar with Hong Kong cinema, then Suet Lam is also a familiar face and name. I wasn't particularly familiar with Kate Tsui, but she was rather impressive in this 2007 action thriller.

The story is about a young woman (Kate Tsui) starring int he CIB special division of the Hong Kong police department. Under the training of her superior (Simon Yam) they are playing a cat-and-mouse chase against a particularly professional gang of thieves.

There are many interesting aspects to the story in "Eye in the Sky", and the characters are detailed and have depth and fleshed out personalities. And the acting talents were doing good jobs with their roles. Just a shame that the pace of the movie was so dreadfully slow.

I will say that "Eye in the Sky" is a movie that appeals only to those whom are fan of the Hong Kong cinema. Otherwise you might find more enjoyment in another action thriller.
