Two Thumbs Up (衝鋒車) Movie Review


What does Two Thumbs Up means? According to dictionary, it is an unofficial honor given for excellence in any field; it can be awarded for any outstanding accomplishment. A warm invitation from Clover Films Singapore, I had caught the latest Hong Kong action comedy film’s ‘Two Thumbs Up’ last evening at Golden Village Vivocity.

Before entering the theatre, I was questioning myself why this movie was named as “Two Thumbs Up” but after watching it, I got touch by the movie and realise it contain a very strong meaningful life story. Being Two Thumbs Up means giving a person compliment, regardless you are good or bad guy, as long as you are doing the right things, you are worth the compliment.

“What you are wearing, it doesn’t matter; the most important is on how people look at you.” This sentence I find it quite true in life. Likewise I strongly agreed that personality will win over appearance.

Well, just a hint up! Most of the action climax in Two Thumbs Up movie happens at night and to attract audience attention, the director and producer has also designed a series of visual graphical effect in this movie. Hence, the highlight of this movie is their unpredictable story twists. I believe this is a worth watching movie to catch this week. I rate Two Thumbs Up (衝鋒車) movie 3.5/5 stars.
