Movie Night :: The Lion Men - Ultimate Showdown

Last Tuesday we were invited by SPRG to the premiere of "The Lion Men - Ultimate Showdown" presented by Star Chinese Movies, Fox International Channels.

For movie night I opted for a white pleated skirt with black polka dots at the hem paired with a brown butterfly motif top.

Jack Neo is a talented Director who brings the neglected art of lion dancing into pop culture consciousness.

A brief synopsis

The Lion Men: Ultimate Showdown picks up after Mikey (Wang Weiliang)’s and Babyface (Maxi Lim)’s superb performance in the first round of the competition. Shi Shen (Tosh Zhang) becomes jealous of Mikey, especially after he discovers Mikey’s feelings for Xiao Yu (Eva Cheng).

More determined to succeed, Shi Shen spends every waking hour in training and neglects Xiao Yu. Even ignoring her efforts to cook a meal for him. As the finals approach, Xiao Yu begs Shi Shen to withdraw from the competition after he is nearly injured in a sabotage attempt.

Matters worsen when Xiao Yu is kidnapped during the finals. Shi Shen and Mikey are both torn between the competition and their love for Xiaoyu. Who will step up to save her?

Before the screening the Director and Cast made a brief appearance.

In my opinion, we should always support local production as film-making its never easy. What I like most about local productions its how the lingo and culture tug at our heartstrings. Only in local films can you find a mix of Chinese, English and dialects all spoken at one time. Go catch the film and have a good laugh!
