(★★★✩✩) SWEETHEARTS since law school, Adam (Pakho Chow) and Eva (Charlene Choi) have been in a relationship for 10 years now. However, one day, Eva decides to break up with Adam.
Adam doesn’t know what he’s done wrong until he comes across Eva’s journal, which lists out 77 mistakes he had committed towards her when they were together. Will he be able to mend his ways? Will Eva ever forgive him?
77 Heartbreaks is a well-produced film directed by Herman Yau. It has a twist and an ending that’s open for interpretation. An ending, I believe, that will get viewers thinking more about the story and the characters.
The film also gives an insight into relationships: It shows how, if there is no effort from both parties then the relationship is doomed. – Suky Gill first film is just too messy to serve as a good launch pad. Russell Crowe’s character might as well be renamed Basil Exposition, because that’s about all he’s there for (the exposition, not the basil – don’t be a pesto). The action sequences are loud but uninvolving, except for one offbeat dust-up with Ahmanet’s undead minions, though that is played more for laughs than chills. Oh, behave. (★★✩✩✩)

This box comes into the possession of one Adam Thatcher (Adam Hampton), a flawed individual who, in his eldest daughter’s words, wrecks things rather than fixes them. So when Adam vows to “fix” their little monster problem, his family isn’t really convinced. And there’s that issue of one of them dropping dead every now and then.
Gremlin has a couple of startling death scenes, decent enough CGI for its obvious low budget, but is frequently let
