Kai Po Che is a well-crafted mass entertainer
How deft storytelling and technique can overcome a simplistic story
Despite the disturbing backdrop of death, destruction and politics, Kai Po Che is very likeable. Between tears, you find yourself smiling, because it's the story of friendship and human triumph above all else.
It is refreshing to see a friendship between three young men on celluloid, without a woman stepping into the equation to cause an imbalance in the predictable film format.
