Black and White: The Dawn of Justice gala premiere!
If you’re around my age, you’d have spent every Wednesday of the last decade at Zouk lol. (If you’re too young to know what Mambo Night is, this aunty’s blog is definitely not hip enough for you :joy: )
ANYWAY, last Wednesday evening as I was applying my makeup (the full works, fake lashes and all) what went through my mind was this strangely feels like every other Wednesday 10 years ago. Back in our uni days, Corinna and I used to doll ourselves up to the nines (though what’s considered chio then is kinda questionable today) and share a cab (oh the perks of living one street away from each other) to Jiak Kim Street.
We’ve since moved on from those Square Rooms days… cause now we spend our Wednesdays hobnobbing with movie stars at gala premieres, thanks to Clover Films!
Last week, we got to catch Black and White: The Dawn of Justice - and perv on Mark Chao – a week before everyone else!
To be honest, both of us are quite of the jiak kantang sort (Hello, NUS English Language majors here please) so a girly-Chinese-movie-date is not something we would have normally planned.
But I’m glad we did!
Police officer in the Southern precinct, WU Ying-xiong, has been revered as a hero in the Harbor City ever since he stopped the terrorists on a Boeing 777 airplane and kept the city safe. Unfortunately, the peace is only temporary...
The entire city is in panic as a series of bomb explosions happen within hours and this is just the beginning of a conspiracy.
Righteous and impulsive, Wu is paired with the intelligent but arrogant loner CHEN Zhen to track down the mastermind behind the bombing incidents.
Facing the unprecedented crisis, the two men team of conflicting personalities is the only hope to reverse the situation. Nonetheless, when moral standards are turned upside down, what faith should they keep to maintain the so-called justice?
To say that the movie was exciting is a severe understatement. If you’re into cop thrillers, then this is definitely for you! I was kept on the edge of my seat the whole time… it was intense yet light-hearted, ramped-up tension mixed with witty punch lines (in Mandarin, but even we got them) and with an eyecandy-filled cast... God, I loved it!
In fact, I’m thinking of catching it AGAIN when the boy’s back in town so he won’t miss out on this.
I would give this movie a 9 out of ten!
Black and White: The Dawn of Justice screening now at all major cinemas.
