YESYESYESYESYES!! I had been feeling ecstatic ever since I know this tv series is coming up with its own movie!
Big fan of this show, obviously. Who wouldn't be? So you can imagine how excited I was to be able to be able to attend the Gala Premiere and get to see Julian Cheung on Red Carpet. Still seemed quite surreal that I got to see him for the 2nd time. And still mesmerised by him.
The first time I saw him was when I attended the Singapore Hit Awards. That room was filled with shrieks and screams. Haha. Maybe some gasps from yours truly.
Anyway, I brought my Mom this time and she wasn't exactly helpful in offering help to take any pictures of happenings at the red carpet so I totally missed out on the whole thing... Not because I was late but because I was busy looking for the booth for ticket collection. Ugh.
Managed to only take this 2 pictures in the theatre because apparently no cameras were allowed to be brought in and also, NO PICTURES. WHAT. T.T
I am very upset that I didn't get any pictures of Julian Cheung. Was crying inside, really.
But oh well, it wasn't hard to convince myself that it's ohkay since the movie really made up for it!
Young pilot Branson (Louis KOO) recently takes over Skylette, his father’s aviation empire, only to realize his old flames Cassie (Charmaine SHEH) is a flight attendant there. Several years ago, he was forced to break up with her and move to New York to take care of his father's business. To this day, the two continue to harbor feelings for each other but decide to keep them bottled up.
In an effort to rebrand the airline, Branson invites rock idol TM to star in an upcoming commercial and appoints Sam (Fransic NG) as her flying consultant. Incongruent in both tastes and experience, this odd couple gets off on the wrong foot. As the shoot progresses, however, they slowly discover each other's merits, developing a strong mutual attraction.
Jayden (Julien CHEUNG) has left Skylette Airline to become a pilot for private jets. He meets the young and vivacious Kika (KUO Tsai Chieh) during a flight and assumes her to be wayward and shallow. But they turn out to have a lot in common and start falling madly in love. At the height of their romance, Jayden realizes almost too late the secret behind her recalcitrance…
Each of the three relationships comes with its own setbacks. As long as one can accept the imperfection of things, finding happiness—however fleetingly—is a blessing in itself.
Firstly, I would like to put it out there for people who expect this film to be filled with serious plane and flight stuff, that it is not. It has bits of it included inside but mostly a romance film. Just giving you a heads up because my mom thought that way.
As it is probably clearly shown in the synopsis, it is about the life of 3 pilots. I enjoyed all 3 of their love lives but especially the one of Captain SAM though. Why? Because it is filled with so many comedic scenes and they were really good ones too!
I think it is quite an eye opener to see Louis Koo acting as a character like that. He does usually got funny roles to play in but this time was not the case.
Oh Captain Cool aka Jayden aka Julian Cheung... My sister had already watched the movie and the both of us agreed that he was definitely a brilliant womaniser. I told my sister if I ever saw what that woman saw, i'd melt. Curious what she saw? Haha
Not quite what I expected it to be but it is still an interesting concept and I still enjoyed the story, or should I say stories.
TRIUMPH IN THE SKIES
