Summary: one fine film

This is one fine film. Award winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Wong Chun-Chun directs her first feature film about a bright, young group of friends living and loving in a funky chic Hong Kong apartment. Six young friends struggle to make ends meet while dreaming of striking it rich, both professionally and personally.

Trendy and hip, they work hard and party harder; playing the drinking game "Truth or Dare", the same one made famous by the pop goddess, Madonna. Director Wong takes the young cast and molds them into a real nice ensemble. Working closely, they manage some real fine poignant moments as the director gives us insight into each individual and their part in the group dynamic.

Summary: Truth: It Sucks

One of the challenges of Truth or Dare is coming up with awful punishments for those to don't accept their dare. In the movie, and I'm not giving anything away, the punishment was to eat an old woman's excrement. I think a far harsher penalty would have been to make the residents of the flat watch this movie.

As far as the two leading actresses giving strong performances, overboard mugging that would make Charlene Choi blush (Candy Lo) and simply looking cute (Karena Lam) don't qualify.

A self-absorbed shallow movie about self-absorbed shallow people.

Here I am again to disagree with the majority of critics. I sincerely hope this is the wrong direction in HK cinema, because I didn't like one bit of this movie. I do give it credit for whatever it did, but I can't say I want to see more of its type.

[4/10]

Summary: a step in the Right Direction

I think this is one of the best film that has come out of Hong Kong in a long time. It is way better than the traditional Hong Kong fare and nothing about this film feels cliched or forced. Though the acting and direction is a bit rough it was good enough to convege the mood and focus of the movie. Also shocking scenes convege the raw emotion this film was going for. To sum up this a step in the right direction for the Hong Kong film industry.

Summary: Not bad, not good either

Well a nice change of a movie, about a group of young adults who play truth of dare and make it real fun. There are about 5-6 people in this flat but the movie revolves around the 2 female characters

I didn't mind this movie, but it didn't blow me away either. The 2 female leads are excellent while the male characters are quite annoying.

the time flies past quite quickly and the ending is nice (depending if they have to eat POO!!) i guess one of the better movies for 2003

7/10
