Second Time Around
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Jeff Lau.


Leave it to Hong Kong filmmakers to take BACK TO THE FUTURE and make it a gambling movie. Ekin Cheng is the gambler, and he has his eyes on taking the high rollers in Vegas. But things go wrong, and he ends up off a cliff -- but not before a mystic Indian talisman transports him, and the detective chasing him (Cecilia Cheung) back in time -- but only three days back, where they have to race to save lives, and of course fall in love. Bad jokes, bad English acting, and a silly time travel script that doesn't entirely add up, but what the heck, there is some fun to be had along the way.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
