Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong (2015)

Director: Emily Ting

Stars: Jamie Chung, Bryan Greenberg, Richard Ng

An attraction forms when a Chinese American girl visiting Hong Kong for the first time meets an American expat who shows her the way, but timing may not quite be on their side. A walk and talk romance set in the beautiful city of Hong Kong, the film asks the question - what happens when you meet the right person at the wrong time?

The best part of this movie is seeing all of the beautiful nighttime shots of Hong Kong. The views of the city streets filled with all of these stores and food stands made this city look and seem like one of the characters of the movie. I just wish the rest of the movie was as good as the city sights.

Josh and Ruby are the main characters in the movie. Both of these people are terrible. They are both cheaters. There is nothing really good about either one of these people. Right at the beginning they are both lying to one another. I know at first neither one of them asked if the other was seeing someone. Neither one of them offered up the information. You know when someone is hitting on you or coming on a bit too strong. The budding relationship killed the movie, unless you are in to watching bad relationships.

This was one of the most predictable movie that I have ever seen. I literally sat there and guess everything that was going to happen in the movie. The movie was that transparent. This movie was so simple that it was pointless to sit through. A child could have written a better script.

I do not recommend this movie to anyone. It is not worth watching at all, unless you are going to travel to Hong Kong. You will then be able to see some of the city and maybe go to the spots in the movie. I watched it, so you don't have to.
