Meet the Formula Drift Drivers and Motorway 車手 Premiere Screening

Yeah, it's time for movie again. I had not been watching movie for such a long time.
Thanks GF for the invitation to the movie.

Before the movie starts, we have the opportunity to attend the meet and greet session of the Formula Drift drivers.

In conjunction with the movie premiere of MOTORWAY, the top drivers from Japan and USA, along with drifters from Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and our very own Singapore, will be here an exclusive autograph session with the fans.

Meet the famous drifters. I'm gonna queue up to get their autograph.

This driver was super nice, he gave us a soft toy each. Omg. I loved it so much. Though I know I am very old, but I'm still a kid in heart. I still feel happy receiving soft toy ♥

End of the meet and greet session, time for the movie.

Synopsis

With car chase sequences shot guerrilla style, without permits or road closures, throughout the public streets of Hong Kong late at night, "Motorway" is an action-packed drama that follows in the footsteps of Soi Cheang's last work, "Accident". 

This film stars Shawn Yue and Anthony Wong as a rookie police pursuit driver chasing down a legendary getaway driver through the streets of Hong Kong. Cheung is an overconfident rookie in the Stealth Riders, a secret police unit consisting of the best drivers in the force that targets underworld racing and fugitives on the run. Jensen is a legendary getaway driver, who's never been caught before his retirement 15 years ago. When Cheung chances upon Jensen one day, he thinks his day has finally come.

More details

Released date:12 Jul 2012
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Rating: PG-13
Run Time: 1 hour 30 min
Distributor: Shaw Organisation
Director: Soi Cheang
Cast: Anthony Wong, Josie Ho, Shawn Yue, Barbie Hsu

My rating: 3.5/5

Barbie Hsu was playing the role as a surgeon, and she only appear for a few scenes to provide a possible romantic interest with Shawn Yue. Their scenes are so little, perhaps because the main highlight of the movie is not about the romance but about car chase. 

The movie is about the story of how Cheung, an overconfident rookie driver who loves to do things in his own way at very fast pace, changed and become matured in the process of learning the driving skills from the retiring cop.

Overall, I find the movie quite entertaining and I enjoyed all the amazing car stunts in the movie. Especially the sharp 90 degree turn in the alley, but please don't try to learn it.
The action-packed stunts keep us in a moderate suspense and I think that it is worth watching.

Motorway will be released in Singapore on 12 July 2012, do keep a lookout for it.
