Synopsis

Xu Lai had dreams once. To be an artist and marry the girl of his dreams. 15 years later, he’s sick of designing bras, humoring his baby-crazy wife, and catering to loopy in-laws

But his upcoming family vacation, now including his DVD-pirating, aspiring-documentarian brother-in-law, has a hidden agenda: a chance meetup with his old flame.
 
But ditching his clan for a clandestine hookup might be the least of his worries. There’s been a murder, and his new hot pursuit might be from the cops who want a word with him.
Written, directed, produced and starring veteran actor Xu Zheng (LOST IN THAILAND, BREAKUP BUDDIES)
LOST IN HONG KONG is the hotly-anticipated sequel to the highest-grossing film in China’s history.
 
Also starring Zhao Wei (RED CLIFF, SHAOLIN SOCCER) and Bao Bei’er (SNOW GIRL AND THE DARK CRYSTAL, THE FOUR), LOST IN HONG KONG is a raucous comedy of errors that proves truth is stranger than fiction, and while you might not have the life you planned, happy endings might turn up in the places you least expect. – Well Go USA

My Thoughts

Lost in Hong Kong is a comedy that also brings drama and action. This film is the third in the trilogy even though they don’t relate to each other much. Lost On Journey (2010), Lost in Thailand (2012 / Review) and Lost in Hong Kong only relate due to the main actor Xu Zheng but his character names in each film are different. One thing they have in coming is that they produce a ton of cash in china as they are big box office successes

The film has a lot of comedy just like the last film and I think most of it was pretty fun and funny in a playful way all the way down to the playful score at times. But of course some of the funny bits are over the top and unfunny as well. Xu Zheng does a good job as he did in the last film and some of his side kicks like the playing his brother-in-law was fun at times. Yes its fun and funny at times but it also has its downsides. The plot seems drawn out as some scenes feel boring and some of the running jokes feel to long. Also the films run time for a Comedy is a bit too long with it hovering close to two hours long.

Overall the film was an OK watch but not as good as Lost in Thailand. If you enjoy Asian comedy and also liked the last film then I would say check this out as it still brings some entertainment but can be somewhat goofy at times.

With that said I give this film a 2.5 out of 5 as yes its comedy could be a hit or miss and depending on your tastes it may be a miss and or hit. I do have to say overall it does sound and look good on Blu-Ray.

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.
