  • Cinematic Conspiracy Theory about Pharmaceutical Company's Self-Made-Epidemic- Marketing Campaign

    hilaryswank20112018-06-23

    This film mainly depicts how illegal hacker group 'The Leakers' network discloses pharmaceutical company AMANAH of Malaysia's conspiracy that markets their under developing vaccine by spreading Zika virus in Malaysia. In general, it is something nihilistic. The family relationship among founder of the pharmaceutical company Zhang Rishan and his children is mechanically nihilistic and it makes audience disagree with this entire film story. It is too brutal to kill his wife and children for his own business profits in seconds. Ordinary people can't imagine how Zhang Rishan gets so merciless. Film does not even show us the story. As the result, it can't convince audiences and nothing moves viewers' heart. Hollywood films do not plot in this way. At the end, The leakers successfully exposes the truth behind this Zika epidemic marketing campaign (Self Made-Epidemic Marketing Campaign) and crimes done by the generous CEO of the Malaysian pharmaceutical company Zhang Rishan which played by the famous actor Kent Cheng. However, the antagonist is the leading capitalist of the entire Malaysian society and wins over all law suites against him after he killed his 2nd.son in public. This reminds us Chinatown (1974) but this film is dim not catastrophically exciting. In Chinatown, Jack Nicholson's final struggle against the raper moved audiences... on the contrary, in this failed tragedy of The leakers, there is nothing. The HK police guy David Wang which played by Francis Ng Chun Yu is just like Nick Nolte in 48 Hrs (1982) but it is less attractive than Nick Nolte. Audience can't understand why David turned to the side of The Leakers so easily? For technical defects, the sound effect of the mosquitos is fries' sound, it is not mosquito's at all. And in-car scenes are ruined in light on actors. It is too unnatural ghost light on them while they are in cars. Besides these, composited photos are obviously fake. He-bin's travel photos are just like this. Moreover, the Australian securities and Malaysian polices are played by the same foreign extras. Audiences are not stupid and I'm professional. In conclusion, audiences can't agree with both protagonists and antagonists in any way however this is a HK blockbuster which depends on huge financial support and crew members from ROC and is only technically competitive with foreign films in Hong Kong domestic market, Malaysian market and in Mainland China. The mode of production is right but we need impressive story and exciting moments in cinema.

    The photography is rough, the plot is thin, the logic is lacking, the acting skills are forgotten, and an old topic that can be talked about has become the effect of television and film.

  • Boring tech-noir flick from Herman Yau

    phanthinga2018-10-27

    Herman Yau got quite a bumpy career as a director in my opinion when back in the 90s he used to direct some of the most outrageous and hilarious Hong Kong movies I ever saw like The Untold Story and Ebola Syndrome to genetic action movie like Shock Wave in 2017 which I also think is fine for what it is but his latest movie The Leakers is a real snoozefest in every way possible.The scale of The Leakers is pretty big when it constantly moving from Malaysia to Hong Kong and vice versa with multi-language being speak but somehow anything that related to the plot sound extremely boring to me.The movie definitely nice to look at and the the acting from both main character played by Francis Ng and Julian Cheung are fine but that all

  • Asian take on Mr. Robot

    viclym2018-06-30

    Watching The Leakers reminded me so much of the ever popular TV Series Mr. Robot. With a corporate conspiracy being the basis with civil vigilantes taking matters into their own hands with different individuals dragged into the case. Action-packed, decently paced and situations that made you question the very fabric of righteousness. For example, is it wrong to let a criminal go when the criminal's doing it for the greater good? As intriguing as the plot may seem, I personally felt the movie suffered in terms of character development. People from different backgrounds were dragged into this case, being entangled in all these but yet you're supposed to care for them...unfortunately I don't. If anything, it felt like drama and action serves as the star of this movie with dialogues and characters are thrown into the mix. With that said, isn't a disastrous movie. Actions were done in a very practical sense with almost very minimum CGI and all. A pretty decent movie to kill time with, just...don't get too invested into the characters...oh wait, you won't. Perhaps The Leakers would have worked MUCH better as a TV series where characters were given more than 10 minutes of development and back stories. A great attempt but underwhelming, unfortunately.

  • As entertaining and flawed as the typical Hong Kong action thriller, Herman Yau's cops-versus-robbers tale with a vigilante twist is perfectly disposable entertainme

    moviexclusive2018-06-16

    Continuing their director-screenwriter partnership that started some seven films ago, Herman Yau and Erica Lee concoct a cops-versus-robbers thriller with a vigilante twist. As the title suggests, somewhere between the good guys and the bad guys lies an organisation who claims to be on a mission of social justice. They want the public to know the truth behind the corrupt practices of a pharmaceutical company named Amanah and its founder Teo Jit Sun (Kent Cheng), who are at the centre of a viral epidemic sweeping through Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Thailand. And to prove their point, they have kidnapped Jit Sun's younger son Jun Yan (Wilfred Lau), demanding that his father not only make public the formula behind the antidote to the virus, but also release RM$1million worth of the antidote to the health authorities around the world. It's an ambitious and intriguing concept all right - ambitious because few Hong Kong filmmakers have tried to portray a real-life pandemic in their territory, let alone Southeast Asia; and intriguing because there is within potential for a compelling moral drama about the circumstances under which we need to choose whether to break the law in order to uphold it. On both counts though, 'The Leakers' comes out somewhat short. Despite a promising setup that portends a conspiracy stretching across Malaysia, Hong Kong and Australia, Lee's script opts for a predictable and easy finish which makes you wonder why it was even necessary to go through so much trouble just to get the truth out. That also means the dilemma at the heart of the organisation's criminal practices is barely sufficiently fleshed out, though we'd be frank to admit that its target audience may not be bothered. Indeed, Yau's film has been billed as a true-blue Hong Kong action thriller, and on that account, it does satisfy. As he demonstrated with last year's big-budget blockbuster 'Shock Wave', Yau is a perfectly competent director of taut and tense thrillers, and this one is no different. The pacing is tight and gripping from start to finish, and even when the script starts showing more and more of its loopholes in the second hour, Yau keeps the wheels turning on the picture so quickly that you won't have time on your mind to dwell on them. The action too, while not particularly memorable, is cleanly and nicely staged, especially an extended car chase that takes place along the streets and highways around Penang. It's been a while since we've had the pleasure of enjoying such Hong Kong-styled police action, and that nostalgia certainly makes what 'The Leakers' has to offer a lot more attractive. Ditto for the ensemble that Yau has assembled for this film. As thinly drawn as the characters in Lee's script are, it is the sheer charisma of these actors that make their roles so watchable. Chief among them is Francis Ng, who brings his usual brand of rumpled coolness to the role of the about-to-be-divorced Hong Kong detective David Wong. On the other hand, Julian Cheung is his typical dapper and serious self as the Malaysian police officer Lee Weng Kan, and Ng and Cheung complement each other beautifully as 'buddy cops'. Charmaine Sheh's lauded news reporter Carly Yuan plays second fiddle to both men, but she, Cheng, Chrissie Chau, Louis Cheung and Sam Lee add some authentically Hong Kong star power to the film. Lest we forget, the Hong Kong film industry was built not just on standouts like 'Infernal Affairs' but also on hundreds of effortlessly entertaining films like this one. We won't deny that there could be a much better film within had Lee and her co-writer Li Sheng bothered to develop a less straightforward story and given more flesh to the characters, but with Yau's steady direction, 'The Leakers' is a completely agreeable way to spend one-and-a-half hours of your time. It's a production full of genuine 'Hong Kong' feel for better and for worse, from its relentless pacing, to its action, and of course to its actors. As long as you have your expectations right, 'The Leakers' will keep you hooked like a good disposable Hong Kong movie should.
