| A City Called Macau
Perhaps too much source material to cover, the film fails to mesh into a coherent end product. The concept and story is great, so is the setting using Macau and how it really delves into the underground universe of casinos, but trying to cover multiple storylines is too much to ask for in under 2 hours. The story is an emotional one and requires a strong female lead to carry, but I think Bai fails to do so. While she shines in certain emotionally charged film, she doesn't have the look and feel of Xiao O. While the film has a pretty straightforward storyline and character progression, but the path it took to get their is too loose. An interesting group of characters, each one with their own personality and motivation, and how all of them succumbs to Macau is one I've heard so often over the years.
