Editorial Reviews

When a bestselling novelist decides to write a horror novel, she opens up the door to a terrifying realm of the supernatural guided by one of her book's phantasmagorical creations now come to life. Trapped in a land consumed by everything forgotten and hidden, including the dead, she must now confront a secret from her past to return home. Filled with spectacular visual effects and spine-tingling twists, this chilling descent into the supernatural from the creators and star of The Eye is the next groundbreaking step in visionary filmmaking.

Customer Reviews

Great special effects, beautiful actress and great story.
mrPHOTOMANtim
At times when the movie tries to be an action flick rather than a psychological horror things just don't work out in its favor..

In essence,there is great beauty, creativity, ambition and experimentation in this film.

Format: Blu-ray
Imagine a dimension where all things that have been discarded and abandoned go -- broken toys, unwanted babies, the forgotten elderly, even fictional characters who never made the cut.

After a run of relatively disappointing movies, Danny and Oxide Pang return with a vengeance in "Re-Cycle," a hauntingly vivid journey that sends Angelica Lee into such a world. This is not your typical Asian horror movie with ripoffs of "The Ring" -- this is a dark fantasy journey into a ghastly, bittersweet otherworld full of secrets and lost things, like a Lewis Carroll horror story.

Ting-Yin (Lee) is a bestselling author riding high with her "My Love" trilogy, which is being adapted into a movie. Her next book, a horror novel named "Re-Cycle," is announced as well.

All seems perfect, save for an ex-boyfriend (Lawrence Chou) who has just divorced his wife and wants back. And when Ting-Yin starts writing "Re-Cycle," she starts glimpsing a strange long-haired woman in her apartment -- and ends up inadvertently wandering into a desolate, ruined city full of zombies, stairs, creaking carnivals and masked children. It's a dimension of the discarded, and it stretches through nightmarish forests, cities, fields and decaying bridges filled with witchlight.

When she's attacked by ghouls, Ting-Yin is rescued by a little girl who offers to help her get back home. After consulting with an old man in a vast library, Ting-Yin is told that she must find the Transit that leads back to her world.

THE PROS....
This film starts out with some of the best chill/thrill/ photography that I have seen in a long time. It also works off the stark beauty of the lead actress whose subtle emotional displays are frequently seen in close up. Blu-ray is usually showcased with nature scenes, but its ability to capture the human face is what most interests me. The special effects here are also beautiful and run seamlessly along side of a variety of camera and editing techniques. It is a feast of the small stuff done well, like chopping a few seconds of film out of an action sequence to create a feeling of dimensional shift and unreality. Each scene is artistically framed for maximum effect. Especially in the begining of the film, the edits literally keeping you jumping. Elements of traditional Asian masks are blended with simple make up techniques to keep the film from becoming bogged down with too much flashy CGI. Often I find that CGI films have one or two scenes that everyone talks about and once you've seen them the funs over. This film uses a variety of subtle color shifts, camera movements and sets to approach each scene with a fresh cinematic voice. Speaking of voice, you really don't have to worry about the film being in Cantonese. Once the films gets going there is minimal dialog.

THE CONS....
I was so visually engaged by the film that I did not began to worry about the plot until the last 15 or 20 minutes. Even after the social issue theme intruded on what had been a very good visual ride, the film managed to shift gears again at the very end and give me something to mull over as the credits rolled. But that last 15 could have been so much better. If I could edit this film I would take out a jarring, sugary sweet montage sequence near the end.

Ting Yin is writing a new book about the supernatural called RECYCLE. As she begins writing, the world of RECYCLE starts to come alive, and as she journeys from the real world into this decaying reality where what we abandon goes, she sees many incredible and disturbing sights.

It's ambitious, but it just doesn't work. This film can't seem to decide whether to scare or amaze, and though it does the latter very well in several scenes (the alleyway filled with amusement park rides was breathtaking) it doesn't save it from embarrassments like the cave of abandoned fetuses, or the cheap looking zombie hoards... cringeworthy! And even when the visuals are high quality and evocative, the synthesized score overpowers any quiet eeriness they're trying to convey and makes the action seem cheesy and comic.

If this film had been shorter, had less (or just NO) dialogue, and a better score, it would've made a nice art movie.

Re-cycle is a relatively new tour de force by Pang brothers and probably one of their last movies made in Hong Kong. After Re-cycle Oxide Pang shot Diary - a curious little psychological thriller and then both he and his brother Danny moved to Hollywood. Hope they'll succeed there because after all these years of making really nice movies it'll be a shame if they blow their chance there.

To tell the truth Re-cycle is a film like no other I've seen. I wouldn't be able to find a similar one neither in Asian cinema nor in Western cinema. Maybe if you need some resembling I'd recall What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams and The Cell with Jennifer Lopez although the second one stands pretty far. You won't find a single similar film in the Pangs' filmography. Neither their "Bangkok trilogy" nor their "The Eye trilogy" nor Ab-normal Beauty, nor The Tesseract are close to what they invented here. They invented, some people invested, and finally we got a real piece of art, an outstanding film, a picture which you ought to see even if you're not a big fan of Hong Kong cinema and of Pang brothers in particular. It's like Citizen Kane or The Matrix - you've got to see it to... just to see it. In no way I'm comparing Re-cycle to the above-mentioned two, it's just that this movie is something very rare nowdays, a movie made with sheer devotion, bright imagination and limitless fantasy. It's really like no other. You may not like the story-line or CGI (they're great though) or acting, but anyway if you want to see something fresh - try this one.

It's useless to retell the story, I'd just say a few words that pretty much say it all - a young writer (played by beautiful Angelica Lee from Koma and The Eye) finds herself in her imaginary world.
