Product Overview

Hong Kong superstars Andy Lau (Internal Affairs, House of Flying Daggers) and Cecilia Cheung (One Nite in Mongkok, The Promise) give award-winning performances in this offbeat murder mystery helmed by acclaimed director Johnnie To (Election, Throwdown). Biggie is a buffed up monk who is clairvoyant. When his friend is murdered, Biggie rejects his faith in search of a more colorful life. However, Biggie's unusual gift soon arouses the interest of his biggest fan, Policewoman Yee, who agrees to help Biggie find his friend's murderer. Winner of three Hong Kong Film Awards including Best Picture, Running on Karma is a stylish action drama with a touch of zen.

Review "Running on Karma" is a strange little movie, let's get that out of the way first. Andy Lau ("Running Out of Time") stars as an unnamed man who used to be a Shaolin monk before a tragic event drove him into the cities. Lau's "Big Guy" is a muscle-bound man of Arnold Schwarzenegger proportions, which means Lau gets to wear a "muscle suit" for the entire film...It's definitely not your usual Hong Kong film, as it seems to move to its own off-kilter beats. The film travels the path of destiny and fate and even dives into existentialism and all that other New Age mumble jumbo. Then again, it's a well-acted movie, and Lau gives a somber and affable performance, as his Big Guy attempts to do the right things for reasons he himself can't quite comprehend...As it stands, "Karma" starts strong, but seems to lose its way at around the 50-minute mark.
