DVD EXTRAS: * English/Chinese removable subtitles * Synopsis and cast info. + trailer KNOWN DVD SECRET(S): None that I know of DVD REVIEW: There has always been something about Nick Cheung films that you enjoy it no matter how bad the movie maybe. Well, “Love Correction” is not a bad movie but it has its share of faults. The movie is about a superstition if someone drops a coin, and one picks it up, you will have bad luck until you return the coin. It’s bad enough that we have many superstitions from Asia that we don’t need another one like this who was probably created by teachers or law enforcement to teach kids to return money if someone loses it. Anyway, Emma is the unfortunate soul who has the coin and within three days, bad things start to happen to her. The only way she can fix the past is if she is able to peel an apple without it breaking before midnight. The first hour is seeing how Emma has to live with bad luck and the second half is Emma trying to make things right and avoid the things that has happened to her with the bad coin (not knowing that she still carries the bad coin stuck to her shoe on a piece of gum). From this second hour, then you start to see Nick Cheung and Athena Chu act together. The movie is enjoyable but it could of done without some really idiotic scenes and bad CGI that are shown throughout the movie. The fact that the storyline is split into two parts, you really don’t have much character development until late in the movie. I did like the fact that it’s a movie that is set in a dot.com workplace. As for the DVD, it’s typical Universe with the info., synopsis and trailer for the movie. Nothing much. All in all, the movie is enjoyable and despite some of the problems of the movie, like most Nick Cheung movies, you still end up enjoying it. THE MOVIE: C THE DVD EXTRAS: C- THE DVD OVERALL: C
