Glorious, emotional but weak cinematic language

The cornerstone of the series Turn over are 2 factors: action and family affection. In which, family affection is the attractive topic of Vietnamese cinema, and action is the unique quality of the series. The comedy element inherent in the series Turn over but the expression is still nonsense, pale, yet unique.

Series Turn over is considered to be of good average quality, somewhat just average, weak film language, not new filmmaking style. The series blends many genres and styles: from mainstream martial arts action to comedy, horror, drama, romance, movie journey …

This mix makes the series can attract many different segments and groups of audiences but at the same time cause a sense of embrace because not all genres and styles are well expressed. The quality of the parts has also fluctuated, not steady progress has been made.

If part 1 Turn over is a rush, but there is still a lot of room and a couple of “bullshit” details, part 5 Turn over: 48 hours is a chase, run away on a scale, many times more epic and less bullshit.

Part 2 Turn over: Films quite unique when exploiting the profession of stuntman. The unexpected ending seemed to be exploitable in the next part, but it turned out not to be.

If part 3 Turn over: Three guys missing quite emotional about the journey of finding relatives of 3 disabled boys (Huy Khanh, Song Luan, Kieu Minh Tuan), Turn over: The house has guests is a big step backwards with the old story, weak, gritty and shadowy Thai ghost film.

Each part exploits the different occupations of the working people, so it is easy to create empathy: gem digger, stuntman, orphaned person selling grilled bananas, out-of-date boxers, deliverers, dealers. fish, motorbike taxi driver, tow truck …

‘Flip’ isn’t ‘Fast & Furious’

After an early show Turn over: 48 hours April 14 evening, an audience member called Turn over is “Fast & Furious of Vietnam “, is characterized by successive, attractive chases with intense, eye-catching images.

However, it is impossible to compare a Vietnamese film franchise and a world-famous action blockbuster brand. The reason is not reputation or rank, but just because Turn over no serial content, no consistent character system development like Fast & Furious.

Turn over It is simply a movie franchise that incorporates unrelated parts under one common name.
