The movie is somewhat like the Fire Starter starring Drew Barrymore in that a girl Wendy (Chingmy Yau) has amongst other powers, ability to start fire. Two great Hong Kong actors Chingmy Yau and Do Do Cheng carries this movie, but other actors are well..... terrible (including the director himself Laurence Cheng)!! If they just let these two ladies run the whole show, this movie would have been 100% better. There's this old lady (named Isabella) that tries to steal the show, but she does a real smelly job (she stunk badly) of acting and ruins the whole show. In the end she gets her comeuppance by having to drink a urine from a pitcher so she kind of gets what she deserves, but scene after scene she succeeds in messing up the flow of the movie.
Charles (Laurence Cheng) plays the love interest of Wendy, and because Wendy has telekinetic power, they succeed in making big money at the casino. Some guys who are into super natural power goes to great trouble to break the romance of these two, but it's not even clear why they had to do this.
If the story is little better and supporting actors are better, this movie would have been a good movie, because Do Do and Chingmy are great even in this movie. You can't hide a great talent, and these two ladies (who are gorgeous to boot) brings up the level of integrity every time they are placed at the center of the scene.
Something went wrong with the casting and production of this movie, and they never recovered from it.
