| A first rate, well acted out, supernatural story
An excellent all around movie entwined with supernatural bindings. Picked this DVD up because Anita Yuen was in it. Expected a light hearted, or slap stick, supernatural comedy. Even the jacket cover depicts this image. Not so. The comic side was primarily well written dialog, pitting the mother-in-law and son-in-law against each other. Each actor carried off a believable performance.....from the office tease to the Philippine maid.
Anita Yuen, who is pregnant, lives in the country with her husband (who works in the city), two children and a Philippine maid. The home is jointly owned by Yuen and her mother, who has just arrived at the HK airport after being away for several years. Shortly after she moves in, a spirit who committed suicide while pregnant wishes to take over Yuen's body. The mother has a near fatal accident and because of this can now see spirits.....and the battle to save her daughter is on. A plus for me was the director didn't opt for cheesy treatment of the supernatural side.....no unnecessary gore or silly props that bring down an otherwise good effort.
Here are some titles inspired by "The Falcon and the Winter Solider" that bring back Peggy Carter, explore mysteries with a few MCU mainstays, and feature a buddy-cop duo who clash as hard as Sam and Bucky.
