Watch Switch - Alternative Versions.
Originally scheduled to be released last October but delayed due to
problems with heavy post-production work, not to mention countless
editing by the director, the end result is at best a patchy piece of
work passing off as a Chinese version of Mission Impossible: Ghost
Directed and written by newcomer Jay Sun, Switch is a high octane
action espionage thriller filled with globe-trotting locations, an
array of gizmos mostly in the form of Nokia smartphones, flashy Audi
cars and a star studded cast including HK superstar Andy Lau, Taiwan's
top model Lin Chiling (Red Cliff) and Chinese actors Zhang Jingchu
(Protégé) and Tong Dawei (Treasure Inn).
You might think this is going to an exciting, jaw-dropping action
extravaganza for the next 112 minutes but like me, your jaw is going to
drop for the wrong reasons.
After a clumsy prologue which establishes the value of the famous Yuan
Dynasty scroll Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains, we are introduced to
several characters - namely our hero, Xiao Jinhan (Andy Lau), a secret
agent who is married to an insurance project director Lin Yuyan (Zhang
Jingchu; while the villains include the generically named Yamamoto
(Tong Dawei), an ambiguous agent, Lisa (Lin Chiling), a weird
underworld leader, Empress (Siqin Gaowa) and a bunch of Caucasian
thugs. What is supposedly an easy-to-follow, good versus evil action
thriller becomes a hot mess under the hands of Jay Sun.
Obviously, Sun has no idea how to shoot an intense action scene or at
least keep you on the edge of your seat. He prefers to jump from one
scene to another without much coherence thrown in. Agent Xiao just
propels from the ceiling all of a sudden. And why is Yamamoto so
mesmerised by the painting? Oh we are supposed to believe Lisa is also
carrying a torch for Agent Xiao. This is no music video mind you and it
becomes increasingly frustrating to watch the characters as they spout
their lines without much emotion and continuity. There's so much on the
screen but everything just seems jarringly off. To his credit, Sun
doeshave an eye for visuals; the production design is so rich and
colourful, you are better off admiring the artistic touches instead of
following the story.
This is an absolutely embarrassing gig for Andy Lau - just when you
thought the charismatic idol finally has a chance to showcase his
acting in productions liked A Simple Life and Detective Dee, Switch
only makes him looks nothing more than a walking, fighting mannequin.
Tong Dawei equally suffers as the tortured, psychotic villain with a
laughingly bad white hairdo while Lin Chiling received the worst
treatment of all, she ends up as a irritable moaning, seductive
Our palms turned sweaty when we watch Tom Cruise hanging off the
skyscraper in Dubai; though we never really feel a thing for Agent Xiao
when he fight off a few thugs and crashed his car in the grand Atlantis
in Dubai as well. Sun tries to imitate even to a certain extent by
engaging Hollywood stunt choreographer and 3D experts for this movie.
Everything that worked in the Cruise vehicle fails in epic proportions
for Switch however. It never picks up from the get-go and simply
splutters all the way to the credits.
