Sophie’s Revenge Chinese Movie Review

Sophie’s Revenge Movie

My Score: 7.5/10 

★★★☆☆

Director:  Yimeng Jin

Cast: Ziyi Zhang Peter Ho So Ji-Sub Bingbing Fan

Summary: Sophie’s finance leaves her for an actress, so she plots a revenge of getting him back and then dumping him in front of everyone. Along the way, she meets a guy named Gordon that apparently has been dumped by the actress her ex is now with. So they team up together for Sophie’s revenge, inevitably falling in love with each other along the way.

Review: I was a bit confused at first… whether this movie was Chinese or Korean. A lot of the text was Korean… there was also a Korean actor in it. However, the language is all Mandarin. It was produced by a big Korean company, so maybe that would explain the Korean text? It was a little strange to me, but I guess they use English like that in foreign movies sometimes….

This movie almost did it; I liked the comedy a lot.  The visuals were good too; Sophie’s apartment was full of color. The story had some interesting little things in it, like when Sophie is telling Gordon about a dream she had. I was hoping to give this a 9 out of 10 at least.

However, towards the end, it got a little boring to me. It seems that when this movie is trying to be serious, they fall back on a lot of cliche’s and predictable plot devices. The end just felt hectic.

Despite that, I would probably watch it again.

My Score: 7.5/10
