Movie Reviews: The Rooftop

Taiwanese Mandopop King Jay Chou proves that he is an all-rounded talent again, this time, in his second movie, The Rooftop.

The 34-year-old wrote, directed, starred and penned all the soundtracks to the new musical-comedy set in the 70s.

The plethora of bright, cheery colours in each scene sets the fun tone of the movie right from the start, while the catchy tunes move the story forward at a comfortable pace.

The film can be a little too self-indulgent on Chou's part, as he shows off his washboard abs in multiple topless scenes.

The plot is predictable and gets melodramatic towards the end, but The Rooftop is a fun movie that will leave Chou's fans asking for more.
