I have just finished watching Shaolin. Not bad…. but i can’t just help the fact of seeing some actors again and again and again….. One such is Andy Lau.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Andy Lau. He’s really good. Versatile and professional.
He can play police, villain, romantic guy, monk, teacher, chef, gangster, comedian, lawyer, playboy, tycoon, beggar, martial artist, warlord, detective…. hell he might be even acting as an actor!
Andy Lau no doubt is one of the most versatile actors and adapts very fast. He’s the ambassador for Osim btw. Before the movie i was at Osim sitting on a sample massage chair with a HUGE portrait of him in front of me who looks like a multi-millionaire and the next thing he’s a monk in the cinema.
He’s good to watch but too much of Andy Lau just makes me confuse on other roles i’ve seen him before in other movies. I think that he should retain his credibility by choosing movies that have significance remembrance of him rather than be an actor of any sorts..
Actors like Johnny Depp, Daniel Craig, retain their wanted-ness by only acting in certain roles.
Even the likes of Bee Gees was once so bored of when their hit song kept hitting the number one spot every week. People got sick of them but after they took a break, they were a hit again! Even Michael Jackson had the same problem.
Well, who am i to say that to Andy Lau!!! Just food for thought.
