Sorry, I am too lazy to sign in as ~everlasting~..Anyhow, I totally can't wait to watch this series tomorrow! The problem is, I love romance storyies, but I hate Fiona's acting. Hope she improved a lot since 2 young and The Academy, if not, I'll probably will be really dissapointed. Don't know about Dylan's acting skills but hope it's good! It's quite sweet, I think they should have asked someone else to do Fiona's role like maybe....Ella Koon? I know she is a newbie bt at elast she did better than Fiona, in RDOV she was great! Or maybe someone else that is young and more pro in love series. Anyhow, still can't wait to watch it. I'll give everyone a full SPOILER synopsis after I finish! :lol?:

Just finished watching this movie, and am surprised to say i actually enjoyed it. It has been a while since I actually finish watching a HK movie. Just been prepared that the movie is slow at time. Dylan plays his usual role as the gangster type, but damn he is so hot in here. He looks so tall standing next to the short fiona. Although there is nothing extraordinary about fiona and dylan's acting, they still do make a pretty cute but tragic couple. I love all the scenes where they all together, especially where she hugs him from behind after hearing him talking about his past. The summary above totally fooled me. Because of it I was surprised at the ending. The movie is pretty depressing, so don't watch it if u are not ready to be depressed afterwards. By the way, anyone know where i can get the ending song to the movie? i know above there is a link to the themesong, but the site is in chinese and i don't really know how to navigate through it. Thank in advance.

this movie is slow and boring at times but at other times, its quite moving and touching. i teared for a few scenes. the storyline is pretty depressing and there are some things i didn't understand (why does dylan steal when he doesn't need to? he's such a nice guy other than that) but if you like sad movies where the characters are extremely pitiful, you would probably enjoy this. there was nothing wrong with dylan's acting but fiona's needs some work. although i have to say, her crying scenes are pretty good.

good things about the movie: DYLAN KUO IS SO HOT :iloveyou: the little girl is cute too you might find yourself thinking about the movie after watching it because even though some parts were dragging, overall, the movie has an effect on you that makes you think because you can't believe what you would do in such situations.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I totally agree with you on why dylan even have to steal in the first place. Spoiler alerts: At the end, fiona found out that he left her tons of money, i mean can't he just use that money to give the evil guy and then stop living the way he is living and turn a new leaf. With that he could've have a happy life with fiona.

another dumb dumb movie

after only knowing her for like less than a year ?

and i don't get who's the guy's mom ?
she has lots of power and money ???

confusing story
and the ending was stupid

why use a gun to kill the bad boss man
if u're gonna take him down
use a damn gun

It's an okay movie, a bit depressing in some situations. The movie incorporated all the dramatic elements to make us tear but somehow it didn't work for me; I only cried once. I'm surprised at Dylan's clear cantonese pronounciation, at least I understood him better than the little girl. Fiona is showing improvements here. One thing that I don't understand: SPOILERS
Did Dylan stole the 3 million$ or not? He once asked Fiona if 3 million$ is enough for Siu Yau to study music or it was to cure her disease...

****SPOILERS and answers to some questions******


yes he did steal it. and it was for music.


this movie is really good, sad, but kinda happy, but sad. the little girl is really good! shes so cute!! and the way she talks, makes you either smile or feel sad.

for other people who didnt get WHY he stole, you guys either don't understand what's going on, or you seriously need to work on your chinese (no offense), or atleast pay attention to what's happening. the reason why he stole was because his wish was to become a pirate, same as fiona when they were kids. that's why when he saw those ships, he was so mesmorized by them. and at the end, he left fiona a ship, and in the ship, he left a treasure map, and of course the treasure was the $3 million that he stole, which is most likely for Siu Yau's music education. It's not to get surgery for her "disease", because he even asked if it's the money problem, and fiona said it's not, it's because it's dangerous.

the guy's mom is rich. and the reason gangsters dont use guns when they kill is becuase it aint cool to do so.

just a short question...

my guess is that he hates that guy, and i guess he didn't want to bother his mom?

He wanted to break all ties with his mother, so he didn't want her money. Also, he didn't think the guy deserved that money. I thought this movie was really slow and boring at times.

GUYS how can you not get the movie...!!! THE WHOLE MOVIE REVOLVES AROUND (((unselfish love))). Giving up for others. There are movies that you cant just watch once and expect to get it all...well for those that are really smart at taking in information...then first time will be enough. Dylan steals the money becuase he wants to Fiona to do this suregry to fix her health problem and also for that little girl to go to university later on. He cant just go to his mom, cause y would his mom just give a big load on money to give to another girl that he likes. THis movie is somewhat draggy but very emotional, touching, depressing, and sad. The ending is sad but rewarding. The ending of the movie, Fiona gets to complete her wich of becoming a pirate.

WATCH it guys.

wow, i must say, big improvement for fiona in terms of her acting and she's finally stepping out of always playing the spoiled rich girl role

this is also the first time i've seen dylan act and i think he played his part really well too

overall, everyone in this movie acted really well and the plot itself was also very touching in a way where you really feel for everyone in the cast, though i can't really understand why dylan would resort to stealing when his mother has money

the ending was really sad too and i don't think it should have happened the way it did

i would recommend this movie to anyone
