Imperfect (2012) Movie Review

Throughout my life experience, I saw some people had no choice but to be bad because of the path they've been given. But what if a person chose to be bad and went down that road so far till there's no way back?

This is the story of just that. Jianhao is the main character in the movie. The show started with him getting out of prison after being in jail for 6 months over some fighting on the street at a festival performance. Returning home to a loving family, tension started at first, but mellowed out as his relationship with his mom turned for the better a little.

But despite his mom's advice for him to be a better person and to stay out of trouble, he follows his buddy to join a triad gang which strangely as it is, the triad gang leader despises drugs to be bought and sold at his territory.

After awhile, Jianhao decided to be a better person and finds back the girl he likes at her part time job. He decides to retake O-levels and things seemed to work for the better.

Until Jianhao's close friends decided to deal with drugs to get easy money despite their leaders strong detest of it being transacted in his territory. Jianhao keeps getting roped into getting his friends out of trouble. One day, the leader's son of a rival gang who loves to make trouble, decided to harass Jianhao's close friends. They called Jianhao for help and in defense during a tussle, one of Jianhao's friend hits Alex (the rival gang leader's son) in the head which later causes him to be in a coma and later died of the injury. Jianhao and his friends fled and remain on the run from the wrath of the rival gang while his own gang decided to stay out of it because of the seriousness of the situation.

His mother had no choice but to go to his gang's leader and related to him that Jianhao was actually his son. Upon knowing this information, Zhihua (the gang leader), decided to help Jianhao out. While arranging for him to migrate to another country for safety, they were ambushed by the rival gang.

This is a drama show and it's done in Mandarin. The show is okay but I've always longed to see more action in films like this which lacks. It's okay but can be a bit boring at times but I'll rate it 3 stars out of 5.
