The musicality is a thing of beauty, and oh man, how much do I love seeing Shu Qi and Zhao Wei kick ass. I loved it!

This is so badass, just all of it: the white suit, the hacking, the action, the amazing editing. Awesome.

This is really cool! The way you've pulled together the tech and the action is great; it's all so snappy.

Also, yay flirting! And Karen Mok x that cake *swoon*

Ahh, that was so much fun!

Often when I see vids that create a femmeslashy story that's all about women kicking ass and having moments, the canon is disappointing because it's really not like that. In this case, the canon is exactly like the vid. It make me want to see the movie again.

I hadn't heard of this movie until I saw this vid and watched the movie today. So awesome.

Oh man, this is just super. There's no part of this vid that doesn't work for me: the busy moments in the quiet sections and the little moments of rest in the choruses (the beat and harmony of the song carry this really well), the musicality and matched motion throughout (the action in 2:12 – 2:21 and 2:22 – 2:30 is seriously nifty), the perfect mix of action and reaction shots (which is difficult, damn it) and the way you nested the flashback in the hit job at 0:46 – 0:58 is something I now wish the film had done.

Off to watch Lin kick people in the face some more.

I can never seem to respond to anything in a timely manner myself (evidently), so don't worry about it.

Glad you enjoyed We've Only Just Begun and I totally hear you on "the perpetual action became paradoxically boring" dilemma. Interesting you should mention a hard drive crash -- I knocked over my primary storage drive while cleaning and lost a new vid and a lot of my attempts at organisation. Long story short, I've put up everything except Black Water, which is delayed until I slap some credits on the project file and remember how to export from iMovie without the whole thing looking like it came from the bottom of a dog's basket. I'll comment here to let you know when it's up.
