| Muddled But Entertaining
RUNNING ON KARMA is an odd little movie. The film features a gimmick where star Andy Lau wears a "muscle suit" throughout, but for the life of me I can't figure out why. It seems to be a gimmick, and really serves no purpose other than to have Cecilia Cheung's character call him "Big One" or "Big Guy" because his character, from what I can gather, has no name. The film gets extremely muddled and weak when it wanders into karma and destiny land. It might have been better had the film stuck to a more traditional method of storytelling. As it is, it's good to see Cecilia Cheung out of period costume or hanging out with Wong Jing. The film's first half, with its police cases and action, are its best. The second half reminds one of German filmmaker Tom Tywker, only less coherent and unfocused.
