ON HIS MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE (2009) short review

Wong Jing’s On His Majesty’s Secret Service is as narratively unfocused and packed with non-sequitur scenes as any of the rotund Hong Kong film kingpin’s comedies, but here is the gist of its ‘plot’: an Imperial Guard (Louis Koo) with no martial arts skills but a gift for scientific innovation becomes embroiled both in his fiancée’s (Barbie Hsu) plot to make him love her more by pretending she’s in love with a handsome hitman who’s actually a beautiful hitwoman (Liu Yang), and in an evil eunuch’s (Fan Siu Wong) plot to overthrow the emperor (Liu Yiwei), who is organizing a competition to find a worthy husband for his daughter (Song Jia). 135 more words

After watching the Korean Boys Over Flowers, I decided to check out the Taiwanese adaptation of the same source material, Meteor Garden I (2001). This series is a lot longer, with 27 episodes, and actually has a second season that Boys Over Flowers lacks. 890 more words
