Obviously as homage to the novel it is based on, the name Tang Chuan was chosen so that its pronunciation is nearly identical to the Chinese pronunciation of the Japanese family name of the original character Yukawa. See more »
The devotion of Suspect X is one of my favorite books, and Keigo Higashino is my favorite writer. Alec Su did a fair job to localize this Japanese style story. Also, it is his second movie as a director, compared to the first, I see great progress. Yukawa (Tangchuan)is my favorite character in "Galileo Series", I have to say I'm very satisfied with Wangkai's acting. Yukawa is elegant and proud, well, he is a genius and he knows he is a genius. He is extremely intelligent but he's not indifferent. I love Yukawa, and Tangchuan is pretty similar to my Yukawa, which made me really excited.
This is a good movie and it's worth buying a ticket, but I won't say this is an excellent movie. Wnagkai and Zhang Luyi are both TV dramas actors, and they did try their best for movie art. The point is even though the movie isn't perfect, everyone tried their best, and I think it is the most important thing.
It is a high-quality movie.
