The Skinny: Cheap-looking youth melodrama that's well-meaning, but ultimately pandering and unnecessary.
by Kozo:
Director James Yuen’s sophomore feature is a dark Feel 100% that suffers enormously from lack of depth, plausibility, and suitable leads. The plot covers all sorts of hot issues like lesbianism, sex changes, petty crime, triads, whoring, rich affluence and untimely death. What we’re supposed to get is a portrait of Hong Kong's youth. What we get instead is a trio of poorly developed romances. Rumble Ages fails to suspend disbelief. That some of the characters do what they do seems to be a conceit of the filmmakers rather than a realistic or even understandable response. Would Miriam Yeung really track down the guy who robbed her without any backup? The fact that she lets him go and grows to be his friend in such a short time is even more puzzling. There are some good sentiments in this picture, but they’re buried. This film is better intended than most cheesy melodramas, but it still falters. (Kozo 1998)
