Hong Kong movie?
21 September 2017 | by alexferdman-98602See all my reviews

No, I don't have much of opinion about this flick and my point is completely different. Supposedly this story is about regular citizens and government officials, right? That's maybe main problem. I visit Hong Kong every year for fun and try not to be involved in anything beyond normal touristic stuff and later on compare what I see with my experience in US and I see there is no difference at all. Both countries claim they are democracies and in my book they both are regular dictatorships. Why? Precisely because their government officials are not elected and their laws are not approved by citizens, yes, exactly as in Cuba or Korea. Have a nice day everybody and think--its not illegal yet.
