Magic Kitchen
(overall rating: 3.4 out of 5 based on 2 reviews)
LoveHKFilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/magic_kitchen.htm
«The annual Sammi Cheng Lunar New Year film tries its best to be a sophisticated romantic drama, but the result feels more clinically manufactured than dramatically sound. Given the talented people and obvious resources behind the film, Magic Kitchen can't help but seem disappointing. A watchable film, but also a forgettable one.»
DVDBeaver.com, by Leonard Norwitz source: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film2/DVDReviews40/magic_kitchen_blu-ray.htm
«Character development is undercooked, while the cooking elements are insufficiently blended. The concluding wisdom is well taken, but I wasn't convinced of the recipe required to get there. It all seemed much ado about not much. There's a considerable amount of very attractive eye-candy via both sexes, the food preparations are appetizingly photographed and the final dishes are dazzling. »
