Featured reviews for

Hot Summer Days
(overall rating: 2.9 out of 5 based on 4 reviews)
LoveHKFilm, by Kevin Ma source:
«Hot Summer Days sounds and looks great most of the time, making it much easier to overlook its flaws. As long as the audience can accept the film's flaws as they would those in the film's Hollywood equivalents, then a good time is almost guaranteed.», by John Li - 3/5 source:
«This lightweight movie will be a breeze to sit through in the sizzling heat.»
The Hollywood Reporter, by Justin Lowe source:
«Co-directors Wing Shya and Tony Chan seem to have lifted nearly every familiar shot from the romcom playbook, substituting imitation for originality and sentimentality for comedy. Aside from the unusual weather, "Hot Summer Days" generates too little heat to spark much fervor.»
The New York Times, by NEIL GENZLINGER source:
«The film, by Tony Chan and Wing Shya, is intricate without being taxing and does just what you want a date movie to do: generate high hopes about the exhilarating, sometimes painful adventure that is love. ... Sure, the film sometimes gets too syrupy — hey, it’s a date movie — but the way this tale finally ties into one of the others is sublime.»
Slant Magazine, by GLENN HEATH JR. - 1.5/4 source:
«Hot Summer Days ties up every bow, links the necessary characters and moods, and pushes past the bristling sweat and heat to find harmonic balance between all the different romantic scenarios, lame ironies be damned (one couple is named Wasabi and Soy Sauce). But if you're going to find love in this overheated world of convoluted romance, one must come full circle, if not by choice then by cinematic sledgehammer. Any characters with shades of dimension are forced to submit to this grueling courtship and enjoy the heat.»
Los Angeles Times, by Sheri Linden source:
«Unlike the similarly multi-strand "Valentine's Day," "Hot Summer Days" has heart, however overstated most of its action. Accentuating its weaknesses but lovely nonetheless is the twist of sorts, involving a factory worker and the boy who's smitten with her, that ends the movie with a sweet zing.»
