Exactly my point

张艾嘉笑說:“香港電影?男人不是演警察就是黑社會,好像沒有其他職業,單憑這點我就知道編劇的知識不夠,香港現在面對的問題是重複20年前的台灣電影,愈縮愈小到最後甚麼都沒有了,所以我們要找年輕的導演、編劇,希望可以回復昔日面貌。”

Have been wanting to say something like this after reading that Tony Leung was going to be a cop again, in his next up-coming movie. And all HK movies are nothing but about mafia and cops. Gosh...is that all the HK script writers think about? And is that all the movie-goers wanna see? Infernal Affairs came in 3 instalments. Shocking really. I couldn't be bothered to find out which was the one I had watched. Even comedies revolve around mafia.

While that is true, it's not entirely correct. I suppose there's still scripts surrounding love stories?

But in any case, I do think that there's loads of room for improvement in the HK movie industry - which is another reason why I don't watch HK movies (unless if it's highly recommended - and half the time I'm still disappointed)
