Divergence (2005)
Reviewed by: j.crawford on 2006-01-15
Extremely stylish, well crafted film from director Benny Chan that allows top actors to ham it up. Aaron Kwok and Ekin Cheng do great battle in their scenes together to see who could be more corny and over the top. No clear winner in that fight. Meanwhile, Daniel Wu continues to shred scenery in an unusual bad guy role.

Overacting by the three lead actors aside, the film is loaded with delightful performances from supporting players Eric Tsang, Sam Lee, Lam Suet and Yu Rong Guang. Clever screenplay by Ivy Ho could have benifited from a somewhat subtler approach.
Reviewer Score: 5
