It's a pretty good action adventure comedy!
Lost in Hong Kong was put together quite well for maximum enjoyment. I found it funny, action packed, touching and beautiful all at the same time.

I'll be honest, when it comes to Asian cinema I'm more about Kung Fu flicks than anything else. I knew this was more of a comedy and I went into it thinking I might not get it, but after seeing the crime drama, Saving Mr. Wu, and loving that, this movie was recommended. So I gave it a try. The story they tell is pretty universal.

Xu Lai, is a man facing a midlife crisis added by the stress of trying to get his wife pregnant. When an opportunity comes to relive his youth with his first love, he travels all over Hong Kong in an attempt to rekindle the relationship, only to find the task more difficult when his Brother-In-Law tags along in order to document his life. Plus they both become evolved with a murder investigation.

I love it when movies defy genres and are able to mix in a lot of things to the story elements without being too jumbled and this movie does that very creatively. I don't know if this would be considered China's version of a blockbuster but it works on that level.

The movie has everything, everyone would need in order to stay in the seats and keep watching.

Most of all, I love how beautiful the cinematography made Hong Kong look. It adds to the personality of the whole film.

I definitely recommend giving it a look. it's got action adventure, Romance, and especially comedy. It's a good one.
