Paradox

Paradox ★★★★½

Genuinely blown away by this entry in the SPL series (thematic trilogy thus far). Louis Koo gives perhaps a career best performance as a father on the hunt for his daughter in a foreign country. His facial expressions and the weight of his sorrows and regrets is felt heavily throughout and I was nearly moved to tears by his acting. I love Louis Koo, don't get me wrong, but he's on a whole other level here. Phenomenal and it goes without saying that Sammo Hung is one of the world's best choreographers, maybe the best!
