Hong Kong's turnover in 1997 marked the end of British rule for over a hundred years. The shame endured by the Chinese for losing their most glorious state was finally over. Now, in 2007, two major television companies, TVB and CCTV, have united to create a grand television series to celebrate its tenth anniversary.
The series is star-packed with old, half-retired actors like Damian Lau and popular new teen idols like Raymond Lam. It's truly the most anticipated series of 2007. But in my opinion, it didn't really meet up to the standards. My standards. But my standards are exceptionally high, so don't curse me if you think I'm too harsh in this review.
I will start with a very brief summary: (spoilers!) The story starts out in 1994, Hong Kong. It starts by talking about ambitious business tycoon Wah Man Hon (Damian Lau). Then, his son, Wah Zhan Bong (Raymond Lam) comes to work in his company. As the story goes, we realize Raymond Lam (I will use real names to make sure things are easier )is immature and very inconsiderate. And in the end, he loses the whole company on stock market, causing everyone in the company to become bankrupt. There are also many side-stories, like the relationship between Sheren Tang and Michael Miu, which ends up destroyed because of the bankruptcy and some other minor misunderstandings. Then it's the love of Charmaine Sheh and Ray Lam which is also ruined by the bankruptcy. And then there's the whole brother story between Damian, Micheal and the Mainland actor who plays the second brother. This 3-brother relationship is first broken, then through the course of the story, it lightens up. The brother relationship, I think, is an image of the China-HK relationship, which, in the end, is reunited.....
