Review: Golden Chicken SSS《金雞sss》2014

在正式給評語前,有些話很想說: 十年前看《金雞》1 和 2,看到了一部用喜劇方式呈獻香港起起落落的電影。它是一部成功的喜劇,因為它帶有一點惋惜。透過阿金(吳君如飾演)生活里的酸甜苦辣,一段又一段沒有結尾的愛情和她那彷彿天真無邪,帶點樂觀的人生態度,這個故事變得很精彩。因此,我也對 《金雞sss》有一點點期待,畢竟都有被之前兩部感動到。在此也要說,吳君如實在太棒了。金馬獎也拿了,足夠證明三姑的演技一流。 被這兩部戲感動到因為阿金傷心的故事 - 為了兒子願意犧牲,為了辜負自己無數次的表哥犧牲了不只一次,還老是被他”坤“。但就是這段跨越不同年代騙來騙去的愛情叫人感到浪漫。也不忘記《金雞1》里阿金和 James Bong (曾志偉飾演)那段莫名其妙的“一夜情”,我是指。。。在銀行突然發生的友情。 可惜的就是。。。十年後的《金雞sss》少了那一份感動,反而好像是一部。。。不太好笑的喜劇。不過考慮它是賀歲片的原因,有黃子華,甄子丹,古天樂等大卡司客串,還加上張家輝的無敵演出。。。算是合格啦!
