Movie Reviews

Excellent film about Asian American identity
Beer_Lager | Harvard, USA | 10/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great film about an Asian American coming to terms with his heritage and his American upbringing, as well as reconciling his romantic lives. It touches upon Asian American alientation that many Asian Americans can relate with.

A MUST BUY in my opinion."
Shanghai Crush
P. Chen | 10/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Don't just Netflix it. Buy it! The plot was so original and unique in so many different ways. The dialogue of Ken Leung was downright spotless. Hayden Panettiee's is growing and I don't mean her age. She hones into the character of Adelaide. If your an Asian-American and you're reading this review, I suggest you to chase this DVD and study it like a f**king text book. The film deals with lost identity, something every Asian-American (male) goes through in life. It's a reflection of Hollywood, romance, miscommunication, social association and reality. Most importantly...finally a Chinese leading male actor gets its!!
The only flaw with the DVD features that there is no subtitles and the behind the scenes were 'ehh'."
A different kind of romantic comedy
Timothy Rich | Kerhonkson, NY | 10/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Heartfelt and wonderful performances by the leads. Shanghai Kiss is an underated film that warms the heart. Hayden Panettiere steals your heart and Ken Leung provides emotional depth and a complex, flawed lead.

Leung's chemistry with his pal is priceless."
Beautiful movie , highly recommended
Techwiz88 | New York | 03/31/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's a shame this movie wasn't given more exposure, especially with the rise in popularity of Hayden Panettiere. Hopefully a studio will pick up the film and release it in theatres. Wonderful chemistry between the two leads and the ending was as heartfelt as that in the movie "ONCE" (also an Indie film).
Loved the cinematography, the film sequences in Shanghai really brings out the beauty of the city, definitely had the feel and quality of a film on a much larger budget.
Excellent score, especially loved Hayden's song "Home" during the closing credits, wish they would release a soundtrack for the film, haven't been able to find the song anywhere, including Hayden's website or her fanclub's.

All in all, I was very pleasantly surprised with this film and believe it or not this was my first introduction to Hayden Panettiere (haven't watched Heroes, but will be checking it out now, and became an instant fan."
