Mission Milano (偷天特务／王牌逗王牌) Movie Review:
When you see a film by Wong Jing, it will mean that the movie will be a seriously dottish. I was pretty on point about Mission Milano. Watching two good looking actors – Huang Xiaoming and Andy Lau plot against one another before working together made the brainless film a little or endurable.
While there were several well-known comedians – Wang Cho-lam and Evonne Sie, I was surprised how Huang Xiaoming who was known for his solemn (+eye-candy) roles (The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom and The Return of the Condor Heroes) went all out to be funny. Well, Andy Lau had his fair share of slap-stick comedy films, so it’s really just watching him doing his signature moves.
There were many grand and beautiful set as the team visits different countries to save the “Seed of God”, but the plot is pretty predictable and classic. Also, there’s no weird dubbing, so we all get to hear the characters’ original voice!
If you are looking for a light-hearted comedy-action film which doesn’t require much thinking, Mission Milano is definitely your go-to film.
Do You Know?
Andy Lau was not just the main lead, but also the executive producer of this film. He was around on set , providing opinions about the cinematography and action sequences himself, leading the team to create many comedic scenario.
Ouyang Nana was treated like a daughter by Andy Lau in this film. During free time, Andy Lau taught her how to perform magic and Huang Xiaoming asked her to be his god-sister. She accepted it after hearing she was the first person he asked.
