Summary: Starts off well but fades...........

It starts off well enough, reminding me of a Chow sing chi movie (because EAson is such a bastard!!) but that soon fades unfortunately. It becomes a romantic comedy which doesn't really work, but people will like the end (not because it ends by the way)but it is moving. Too bad the middle is filled with..........something uninteresting and that is EAson gains powers when he touches people he enters their mind. It is funny at times but inconsistent. i guess watch it for yourself............

6.25/10

Well, I certainly didn't care about this film at all! While most of the audience (and one particular viewer sitting right next to me - you know who you are) apparently found the childish antics and spasmic grimacing of Eason Chan so funny that they were howling with laughter, I sat through the whole film stone-faced and bored to death. And Eason wasn't even the worst element in this mockery of a film - that honour clearly belongs to Rain Li, who put on a performance full of weird twitches, bizarre mannerisms and completely over the top opera-like gestures that was so painful to watch I had to close my eyes whenever she was on screen to avoid serious brain damage.

The story was something about Eason being a jerk (well, they got that right, at least) who develops supernatural powers after an accident, allowing him to share the feelings of others whenever they tough his injured hand. This sudden and at first unwanted exposure to others (as well as the innocent love of his smitten and completely angelic childhood girlfriend, played by Gillian from the pop duo TWINS) slowly turns him around and he becomes a decent guy. Or so the filmmakers would have us believe.

Lots of cameos from the likes of Lam Suet, with Candy Lo once again being pregnant and like in Time and Tide giving birth at the end.

Not recommended.
