14 February 2007
The skinny: Drug lord Kun aka Banker (Andy Lau) wants to retire and pass on his trade secrets to his protege, Nick (Daniel Wu).

But Nick is an undercover narcotics agent, and as he gets embroiled in the trade, he finds himself torn between his duty as a cop and his friendship with Banker.

The review: Films surrounding the perennial topics of drugs, syndicates, and cops versus crooks are nothing new.

But while some movies such as Infernal Affairs set the standard, Protege remains, well, a protege in this genre.

With film heavyweights Derek Yee and Peter Chan as director and producer respectively, you'd expect a little more depth.

I can handle a simple story without an intricate plot, but not when the film-makers appear more interested in drumming in the anti-narcotics message than telling a good story.

In fact, I suspect the story is just an excuse for the message, played out by beautiful people of course.

Granted, the workings of the drug trafficking world are well-researched but when it comes to story-telling, Protege is merely scratching the surface.

Likeable and humane as the characters are, especially Banker, we are kept clueless about what motivates them to go down the path of no return.

Still, Protege is beautifully shot and the actors, especially Louis Koo and Zhang Jingchu as junkies, inject much flavour into their roles.

The one scene that justifies the ticket price:
In quiet contemplation after the deaths of Banker and his junkie neighbour Fan (Jingchu), Nick is about to give drugs a try but Fan's cute little daughter pops in and gives him a hug.

The one scene that will eject you from your seat: The ghastly scene where Fan convulses violently and writhes in pain after her husband (Louis) injects heroin into her neck. Later, Nick makes a grisly discovery of her rat-infested body, with eyes wide open and a trail of dried blood.

Best quote: The part where Nick ponders: 'People take drugs to fill the emptiness in them. So what's worse? Emptiness or drugs?'

Moral of the story: Drugs kill, need I say more?

It was said that Andy Lau changed his usual image and improved his acting in Protege, one said: "He also didn't acted well in the past, however I'm a hardworking actor." So what does Andy think of himself?

He and Ho Mei Ting were promoting Protege in Guangzhou and he finally told reporters what he think within his heart.

At the Guangzhou press conference, a lot of questions related to acting were directed at Andy. It clearly shows that he's used to such questions. In the interview that follows, although he's more truthful but reporters still feel that he's unhappy as his smile is hidden with sigh. Andy said that he despise his own acting: "Nobody ever said that I acted well, to be able to hold on till today is not easy."

He said that he's afraid that people referred him as an idol, whenever he heard this remark, he would have a sour feeling. He expressed that although he didn't show off this side of him but he's still aware of such comments. Andy sighs: "No matter how well I act, people will still refer me as an idol." After saying this, Andy brings up Fan Bingbing whom collaborated with him in A Battle Of Wits, "She's the same as me, maybe it's due to our looks, people just confirmed that we're idol and cannot act."

Although he despise his acting, but that didn't make him lose his confidence. He gave himself 99 marks for his performance as Kun in Protege as he used his own acting methods for this character. "In the past I will act as per to what the director told me to, meanwhile I came out with my own expression for Kun, on acting, everything is my idea, Derek Yee gave me a large space. Derek trusted me too much, other than telling me his requirements on the first day, the following days he just tell me ' Very good, this will do'. Such trust is very important to me, therefore this movie can be considered as my own stuff, if everyone don't like it, this means that my way of expression is wrong." He gave an example, in the Kun commit suicide scene, I've my own recreation, I made the character's feeling lighter, "Because the scene where he parted ways with Anita Yuen is touching enough."

Andy added that Kun is rather similar to him, he said: "Other than the different identity, I feel that I'm similar to him, believe in friends, love own family, despise certain areas. Actually I hope to select a character whom mentality is similar to himself, the same attitude to love in Love On A Diet, to be a good person in Infernal Affairs, I'm also thinking very hard how to be a good actor. (burst into laughters)"

Throughout his long acting career, which character did he like the most. His answer is rather surprising, he said: "The fatso in Love On A Diet."

During the 4 heavenly king era, Jacky Cheung can sing, Aaron Kwok can dance, Leon Lai is handsome, whereas Andy's remark is "a hardworking actor". Andy does not like this remark, he said: "They didn't sing praise of me, thus they said I'm hardwroking." With regards to Jacky and Leon making an return and Aaron kept winning Best Actor awards, Andy also doesn't have much feeling: "That era had passed, 4 heavenly kings is just a memory."

With regards to the "production line cut" in Hong Kong showbiz, Andy thinks that its because the younger artistes had less chances and space. "Both me and Tony Leung Chiu Wai acted for more than 20 years, so many movies to our name, but my movies would not do as well as Chow Yun Fat's movies. Thus said, these young actor did act quite well, but in the past we have a few good movies per year, they don't have the chance now." With regards to who could take over his place, Andy said that it depend on fate: "I'm lucky, with regards to whether this batch of new actors to become megastars, it would depend on their luck."

After Protege, Andy whom's currently shooting Ci Ma, followed by Zhao Zhilong. Andy explain that he does not consider whether there will be a breakthrough, just consideration of whether the script is good or bad, "If the script is good, my face, outlook will leave to the director to decide, anyway all directors are thinking of how to make Andy Lau not look like Andy Lau." With regards to the word hardworking, Andy still have some objections to make: "I'm not only hardworking during work, I'm one whom willing to sacrifice myself." Therefore, he would be acting some characters that would harm his image in order to win awards or make breakthrough. He said: "I'm an actor but I'm also a human, if this character will affect my lifestyle, no matter winning what Best Actor award, I will not accept it, because for a very evil character, my parents and fans would not be happy after watching it."

Andy also expressed that the preparation works for the second Focus First Cuts is undergoing, he says: "Focus First Cuts is the important segment of my company, although I'm currently busy with shooting, but my company had started planning. The most headache is still budget, we still need to raise funds from different ways. Therefore before the funds were raised, we still had nothing being confirmed."

Louis quipped that it's comical that he didn't get to act opposite Andy throughout the movie until the promotional activities. Andy pointed out that he last collaborated with Louis in Century of the Dragon. When talked about Andy hugging with Mrs Nina, it was found out that a male fan rushed on to the stage to kiss Andy during the Shenzhen promotion 2 days ago. When asked if Andy is angry of the fan's action, he quipped: "Nope, people whom love me could get too excited, at least they would not hurt me. That male fan can be considered as well-manners, it's not too outrages, I still can accept but still feel strange about it."

Andy expressed on stage that he hope that Protege could have a sequel but he said that his character dead in the movie, but the story could have some developments for shooting a sequel. When asked if they could shoot a prequel instead, Andy quipped: "Don't try to 'kun' me."

Andy whom is scared of rats was exposed that when the scene of rats climbing all over Zhang Jingchu decomposed corpse was screened during the premiere, he excuse himself to the gents, he explained: "This is heaven's will that I'm urgent and need to go to the gents, actually I do not know that the scene would have rats, if I'm seated, I would close my eyes." He again stressed that he would not accept any shooting together with rats no matter how high the fees, how huge the cast or any awards nomination.

When asked if he had experience of being scared by rats, Andy said: "Got, Michael Dao once used a black and white rat to scare me, he later got beaten up by me. When I was shooting Days of Being Wild, a rat suddenly appear on the set, I asked the crew member to chase away the rat before I agree to continue shooting. With my fear of rats, I don't dare to go to eat at roadside stalls anymore."

When asked if he's scared of Mickey Mouse, he says: "I don't like it that much, I don't like those if the shape look like a rat, that explains why I didn't study Biology." Andy added that he also has slight fear of cats, because he would imagine how the cat eat the rat.
