hey, kim, good review, who is it from, or did u write that? haha... Michelle is not un-name, its more like calling a woman - Woman, and the fat guy - Fatty, the old man - Uncle, they're all 'nameless' (except Brain) in a way, but I guess Michelle's woman was weirder than fatty and uncle...

Accident finally arrived in the mail and Francis and I watched the movie. I must say, we both thought it was really good. The plot was clever and intense. It had a Hollywood style...if that make sense. True, it really wasn't like your typical action packed HK movie, but maybe that is why I liked it so much.
A lot of reviews didn't like the ending, but I actually thought it was pretty good...a bit of a twist too.
Overall, we enjoyed it and constantly kept guessing what was really going on...I guess we were paranoid too...not just Louis Koo.
I have finally watched Accident. I actually really want to watch it before when I saw the trailer and the storyline was intriguing but when I knew that Michelle won best supporting actress for this, I wanted to watch it even more.
Personally, I found the movie's pace to slow. People might give up at the start but if you hold on abit longer, it is actually a really good movie.
So did Michelle Ye deserve her award? Hmmm... in my opinion I thought she came out to little however the parts where she does come out she does portray it really well. But than again, she is the supporting actress. I am a huge Michelle fan and I was really glad that she got best supporting actress but I feel that she got it mainly cause there was few supporting actress attending the HK film awards (I mean she was again Vicki? who won best actress). However, Michelle was probably a better supporting actress than Vicki.
As for the film, I really liked how it is a twist. One user member mentioned that the film should be called assassin instead of accident. I agreed before but now I completely disagree cause the ending totally hit the accident theme. The film is all about the group creating murders as accident. We as the audience would go along with Louis believing it is not an accident and someone does want to murder them. I kept thinking that Richie was the villian behind this and he got Michelle to help him and he was behind all of the accident giving out orders to people in how to carry out the accident. It was great that the twist was Louis got it wrong thinking it was a plot but really it was all an accident.
When Richie stabbed Louis it was to reveal to the audience that Richie is not a type of character who is cunning and plans murderer but a regular, normal person who gets upset and does thinks impulsively.
