Featured reviews for

[KFCC] 2002 review source: http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/action/2002/2002.html
«Everything in this movie is jazzed up in way. You can feel the sheer star power Tse and Fung brings to the screen. They've done it in countless of other movies and 2002 is no exception. Adding Yip in the mix absolutely multiplied that very same presence brought upon by the tandem. You could say that if Tse and Fung were "gay," they'd make a great onscreen couple simply because of that great chemistry they have together (no, I'm not gay). The movie itself has a nice overall storyline. Yes, it has been used, but it's not hackneyed. In fact, it totally breaks the genre open, well in my eyes anyway.

«This would make for an interesting take on the ghost genre, but apparently the film-makers decided that this wasn't enough, and so they added in a romantic subplot - well, actually two of them. The first has Stephen falling in love... I don't mind a bit of romance, but the stuff in 2002 is so heavy-handed, it really grinds the movie down. A good case in point is the climatic battle. It should be exciting, but the use of a cheesy Nic Tse ballad and musical montages really degrades the power of the fight.»
BeyondHollywood, by Nix source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/2002-2001-movie-review/
«2002 plays out like a comedy with spurts of action, and director Wilson Yip uses an extensive amount of wireworks for the action sequences, and has the budget to digitally remove all the wires from the film. In a word, the movie’s stunts look very nice. The whole look of 2002 is very slick and actually looks more like a 90-minute trailer for a movie instead of being a movie itself. The actors pose constantly and slow motion is used as if the technique is going out of style. A deep movie 2002 ain’t, but it’s very nice to look at and has a very good sense of fun.»
