YesAsia Editorial Description

Three men are going beyond what their jobs require them to do... Aaron Kwok is an ill-fated CID who runs into a woman looking extremely alike her long lost girlfriend during his investigation on a money laundry case. Ekin Cheng plays a lawyer who protects a corrupt businessman from law, and Daniel Wu becomes a killer in the film who violates his code to get involved in the ill-fated CID's investigation. Adding to the all-star cast are TV idol Gallen Lo and charismatic lady Angelica Lee (The Eye, 20 30 40).

Directed by Benny Chan whose actions Heroic Duo and New Police Story has stunned so many, Divergence is loaded with copious details to portray intriguing characters that makes the movie an engrossing thriller. Ivy Ho, scriptwriter for romantic dramas July Rhapsody and Comrades, Almost a Love Story, really knows the art of narration, and she successfully intertwine the stories of our three men into an plot that is powerful enough to engage the audience. Mysterious affairs and people just come up one after another in Divergence!

Professional Review of "Divergence (Korean Version)"

February 1, 2007

This professional review refers to Divergence (DTS Special Edition) (Hong Kong Version)
Less an action film than a mild mystery with heavy doses of mental imbalance, Benny Chan's Divergence has more in common with the director's previous film Heroic Duo than his teen-heavy throwaway film Gen-X Cops, and its most unfortunate follow-up, Gen-Y Cops. The first thing you notice is that Divergence has more story and characterization than the usual hired killer film that comes out of Hong Kong. Aaron Kwok plays a cop perpetually on the precipice of a mental breakdown. Kwok's Sean is not having a good day - after his witness is shot full of holes by Coke (Daniel Wu), Sean is suspected of leaking information to the killers.

Later, while following dispassionate criminal lawyer To (Ekin Cheng, in a humorously subdued performance), Sean spots someone he believes to be his girlfriend (Angelica Lee), who has been missing for the last 10 years. Is it her? Or does the woman, who is also To's wife, just happen to bear a striking resemblance to Sean's missing girlfriend, who vanished one night, never to return. And why does hired killer Coke seem to be intimating that he knows something about what happened to Sean's girlfriend? Add to this a subplot about a vigilante serial killer, the case of a dirty businessman's suddenly missing son (who is also a manufactured pop star, no less), and there are enough subplots in Divergence for two movies. Or three.

Divergence seems less concerned with the police angle than following the slowly self-destructing career of Sean - which is a good thing, because Sean makes for an interesting character, while the cop stuff smells of cop movie clichés. Divergence makes for very interesting viewing, even though there's nothing overly special about the film, and one finds it difficult to explain why it makes for worthwhile viewing. In a bit of false advertisement, the film opens with a good action scene where Coke dispatches of Sean's witness, followed up by a cat-and-mouse game between Sean and Coke that seems to go nowhere. There are other subplots, such as Sean's continued search for his missing girlfriend, his stalking of To's wife, and his visits to the mortuary where he converses with morgue guy Eric Tsang (doing cameo duty along with Lam Suet). There's also a final, violent gun battle in the rain to close things out, but it's interesting to note that the sequence doesn't involve any of the three main characters, none of whom appears on scene until the last shot has been fired.

Of the three main principals, Aaron Kwok gets most of the screentime, with Ekin Cheng and Daniel Wu slipping in and out of the film at random intervals, seemingly to remind us that they have something to do with the movie (but fear not, all is revealed at film's end). Divergence keeps its major question (Is To's wife Sean's missing girlfriend?) unanswered until the very end, which is a good idea from a scripting point of view, but a poor one if you are a fan of Angelica Lee, who is criminally underused. Coming off the excellent A1, and before that the equally excellent Koma, it's disappointing to see Lee in a supporting role that keeps her in the background with nothing to do.

Divergence is an interesting film in many respects. As an action film, it doesn't always deliver on the goods, and as a crime film, it's also a bit lacking. But as a character film, it's quite good, helped in no small part by Aaron Kwok's affecting performance. Ekin Cheng is mostly a non-entity, and Daniel Wu, fresh off his award-winning role in Jackie Chan's New Police Story, seems to be having a ball. Although hard to pin down, Divergence makes for intriguing viewing, if only because it's a very odd film, and it makes you wish there was about 30 more minutes of movie time available just to get everything in.

Movie Grade: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Nothing special but quite good none the less. Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
There is nothing special about this film and things happen in a rather predictable manner i.e the villain of the piece. What redeems this picture is how director Benny Chan moves things along at quite a brisky pace with some decent hand to hand combat, shootings and foot chases thrown in along with the quite touching if not a bit melo dramatic drama.

Aaron Kwok does an admirable job as a cop tortured cop but does tend to go over the top a bit (but passable), Ekin Cheng as a slick lawyer works fine but his revealing of character is not justified enough to make you care for him. Daniel Wu is fine as a hitman but seems pointless to the plot.

The action finale is rather disappointing for it is too conveniently rounded off.

uninteresting... Customer Review Rated Bad 1 - 1 out of 10
Uninteresting story/plot. Character development is boring. Benny Chan did great on New Police Story, but this one is seriously not recommended. Unhappy ending like a TVB TV series.

Almost Perfect Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
When i first purchased the DVD, I had no idea what to expect considering some negative reviews I have read about the movie. The movie compeltely blew me away, Aaron Kwok was spectacular in portraying the dead beat cop chracter who was manic depressive and Daniel Wu was also showing why he's the next big star within this film. The movie is not hard to understand if you carefully think about the concepts within the movie. All in all, I feel i got my money' worth and I would recommend it to others
