A lightly comic gem with an ensemble cast and stylised look in perfect synch.

The Lion Roars (2002)

Joe Ma is set to begin filming the sequel to The Lion Roars in July with Cecilia Cheung returning. Cecilia had contracted for the sequel years ago. Whether Louis Koo also returns has not been finalized. Filming will take place in Shandong and Ningbo. (Sina)

The Detective 2

The early report from one viewer who saw the media preview of The Detective 2 (B+ Detective) says that the visual impact of the film is worthy but finds that the storytelling aspect is less impressive and an insufficient level of suspense. The film focuses on human nature and the darker side of man rather than ghostly type horrors which the director feels is more terrifying and lasts a lifetime. The film closes with an open ending and the author wonders whether there should be a future promotion to A+ Detective. (Sina) [Update: It seems that the mainland and Hong Kong versions may not be the same?]

Stills from Jacob Cheung's Rest on Your Shoulders. The story is a romance of one man, three women and will be released this summer
