Movie Review / 電影觀后感 
The movie is somewhat in between "Cold War" and "Infernal Affairs", the type of movies that I personally enjoy watching. With so many mega stars  cum eye candies in the movie, needless to say, the blockbuster movie will be a hit!  Before heading to cinema, I'm all in to support Jacky Cheug and Choi Siwon.  But after this movie, someone has caught my attention, she is no other than Janice Man - beautiful yet lethal with her actions and eyes. Overall, I've enjoyed the movie much, although the momentum is a bit too slow  during the mid time of the movie. The actions and the plot is well planned and some parts of the twist is unexpected. This movie is just a warm up, I believe the sequel will be even more exiciting.
Rating: 4/5







這部影片,介於《寒戰》與《無間道》之間,是我喜歡觀看的影片類型。眾多巨星雲集,已是這部鉅作的賣點,再加上俊男美女齊聚一堂,更是養眼;影片必定賣座。然而,片中的打斗場面,亦十分精彩。在觀賞這部影片前,我是衝著張學友,崔始源,但,看完這部影片後,文詠珊深深地吸引了我!她就像那蛇蠍美人,深藏劇毒,卻令人不禁回眸!雖然,到了中場時,影片的節奏略嫌太慢,但大體上,這部電影仍是大力推薦的片子。片中的劇情策略與動作設計,更是值得嘉許;其中的一些轉折點有點出人意表。這部影片僅算暖身,想必,續篇會更精彩!
評分:4/5

Helios will be screening in the cinemas on 30 April 2015.
《赤道》于2015年4月30日在各大戏院上映。
