The Best Hong Kong Film of 2018 - Mr. Kinpachi for 3B Class and Chan sir for 6B Class

Chinese film development strategies are divided into two tactical categories that one is China-Hollywood cooperation on block busters; the other one is China-Hong Kong-South East Asia cooperation genre films. Audiences of today know the successful example of the former is The Meg (2018), and the latter is this film Big Brother. The story line is simple enough that ex-military kung fu master Chan sir attempts to resolve school problems using a blend of charisma, honesty, humour, wit and kong fu. The second high school of Hong Kong is doomed by bad students with domestic issues, spiteful gangster and silly bureaucrats. The Onizuka of HK solves all of these at the end. This film is a Hong Kong version of the Japanese school TV drama series Kinpachi-sensei (1979-2011) and GTO (1999-2000) with Kung fu essence. The main difference is this Hong Kong GTO actually reflects Hong Kong's typical domestic and social issues. It has a lot of social commentary on issues such as gangster's violence and threats on outcasting of residents of targeted land, racism against Middle East, South East Asian roots minorities, and non Chinese minorities' Hong Kong identity- as well as bullying (of both students and teachers), teenage car driving, teenage suicide, hikikomori, patriarchy and the extreme pressure to do well in school. Our hero is Chan sir which played by the 'Ip Man' Donnie Yen who is the best action star of Hong Kong in the 21st. century. This film is his one of master pieces in terms of emotional expression. However, action sequences are significantly exciting that you can actually witness astonished audiences for his fast cut action montage. The light motif of this film is an eagle even among kung fu action scenes. Their Kung fu action is like flying eagle. Hong Kong action is designed by the concept that Muhammad Ali Says "Float like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee." Wiring actors in action, and it's enhanced digitally by computer animations. Anyway, Kung fu is one of Hong Kong film's essential features. Other feature is Hong Kong's mammoth apartment complex. The Director of Photography Nathan Wong made a consciously framed wide shots which exaggerating the gigantic apartment complex of these ordinary citizens. This imaginary is also typical feature of Hong Kong film. The most impressive scene among all of these is when 'Mr. Vampire' actor Billy Lau played a role of father of a female student who wants to have a car license and freedom of choice decides her future by a cart race. And when a car accident nearly kills her, the father bursts into tears and speaks out his true love despite his patriarchic attitude against her. This is the most artistic moment of the entire film. At the end, audiences are enlightened by Chan sir's maxim: 'Remember. You can do it.' This maxim is not only for Chinese filmmakers of today, but also for all audiences. This film will be the best of 2018. A Humanistic Kung fu Movie.

Touching and Inspiring - a movie with a lot of heart and positive messages!

I went into the theatres expecting a full fledge martial arts movie, but I got more than that. The movie totally blew my expectations away, as Big Brother touches on gender equality, racism and more importantly the flaws in today's education system. The role a teacher plays in his/her students' lives, to inspire and motivate. Reminds me of the hit Bollywood film, 3 idiots, but with more action scenes. Have not seen a movie that brings out so many positive messages for a Long time. Also was not expecting to go into the cinema to see so many people wiping their tears during the movie - a very touching movie with comedic elements and incredible action sequences. A movie with a lot of heart and effort, and deserves to be applauded. Definitely recommended to be watched in theatres! :)
