Right, well I am usually one that is all over Hong Kong movies, so it was no surprise that I jumped at the chance to watch "Qin Mi Di Ren" (aka "Dear Enemy") as well, when I was given the chance.
Oh boy, this movie was horrible. I don't know what to categorize the movie as, romantic comedy is what comes closest to it, I suppose. But "Qin Mi Di Ren" failed horribly at being this. It was such a slow paced and utterly devoid of any kind of appeal or things to make it interesting.
The acting performances in the movie were adequate, but the actors and actresses were fighting and losing an uphill battle with an atrocious storyline that was lacking everything.
Of course, not every single movie that comes from the Hong Kong cinema will be good, but this movie was just beyond the scope of even being mediocre. I didn't even finish the movie. I managed to endure about 1 hour of the movie, in the dwindling hope that it would become better. It didn't, however... So I turned it off, feeling horribly bored and found no entertainment value in "Qin Mi Di Ren" at all. This is not a movie that I will be returning to watch again.
If you, like me, enjoy the Hong Kong cinema, then stay well clear of "Qin Mi Di Ren", because it is just not worth it.
