致命復活 One of the few great TVB series

This drama series seems to be a very intriguing series with complicated plots .. interesting characters ..10 years alone on an island was definitely a life time away .. probably longer than Tom Hanks' "Cast Away" .. surviving that long took a toll on Vincent's body and mind

No wonder he went nuts .. insanely trying to take revenge on Yan .. whom he thought was the ultimate "boss" .. Wait .. he went crazy because he was drugged .. what a bombshell .. wondering why he was so consumed to prove his case to Cathy

Vincent (Kwok) is a complicated character to play .. no wonder there was story about how he was mentally broken down .. sucking into the role .. Thought Max (Wong) played his role pretty well .. a good actor in his own right

Tracy is my favorite .. this brotherly love may turn into romantic love with Max .. Emma was really a bitxx then .. but turned into caring girl friend of Max .. what a dramatic explosion scene .. now we all feel sorry for her

The more you watch .. the good guy Yan then .. gradually turned into a bad guy .. and worse .. a calculated .. psychotic murderer .. His background as a mercenary made him that much more dangerous .. an expert who knows guns and explosive devices

Yan (Wong) has absolutely become a real scumbag .. sacrificing anyone who dared to stop him .. He spoke mostly in monotone .. fitting his cold blood character .. his facial and eye expression close-ups are getting creeper .. almost like the main character in "Silence of the Lambs"

The explosive scene where Vincent and his lady companion didn't get killed was simply aided by the 15 seconds time bomb .. which didn't make sense .. but who could fault the script .. the main character simply cannot die .. at least not until the end of the series

Not really a loyal TVB fan .. but the minute I started to watch episode #8 .. couldn't seem to turn away .. a unique story with backdrop in Vietnam .. where Cathy and Yan grew up .. where kidnappings .. killings .. violent scenes happened .. a lawless society similar to Phillippine

Love triangle turned so tragic .. impacting many lives in the process .. thought Queenie's role was bland .. she's simply filling in all the holes .. linking everybody up .. Physically she looked like Cathy's mother .. kidding .. but Cathy looked a lot younger than her age

Thought the ending was fair .. after what he did to Vincent .. Yan had to right all the wrongs .. ultimately sacrificing his life for his love to Cathy .. his character was influential to the series .. from growing up as childhood buddy .. to separation .. to seize the love .. to hide the truth .. to kill the innocents .. to sacrifice his life

TVB awards show .. so much competition .. so many great actors/actresses .. a few tears shed .. deserving winners mostly .. 陳展鵬 won the big price .. really a senior member in TVB .. But 郭晉安 should have won it .. because the character he had to play in 致命復活

萬綺雯 is gorgeous looking .. a good actress .. Her role was almost as difficult as Vincent .. She definitely can cry with the best of them .. but lagging mixed emotions of Cathy .. feeling of betrayal .. vengeful .. loves .. baggages of self blame .. secrets

致命復活 was really a breath of fresh air .. with unique backdrop and story lines .. orphanage in Vietnam .. turned into different paths in adulthood .. intertwined with one another . love turned into betrayal . revenge turned tragic

Vincent was casted away .. came back to life .. Plots thickened .. conflicts with Yan played out extensively .. good guy Yan was really a bad guy .. Vincent was consumed to find the truth .. love triangle had to end as Yan made the ultimate sacrifice

The show might have been over .. hopefully lingering effect will continue .. inspiring script writers to be creative .. breathing lives into TVB series .. and not sticking to the same old formula of cops stories .. lawyers .. business empires .. fighting inheritance etc

Materials of 致命復活 series were very different .. from the backdrop of Vietnam .. to orphanage .. business doctors .. love .. revenge .. conflicts .. relationships .. eavesdropping .. drugging .. and intertwining of the characters from the past to the present

Not much of a dull moment .. story keeps revolving .. like peeling of the onion .. layer by layer .. mostly by relentless Vincent .. who wanted to find out who framed him .. At times the plot might seem to bite off more than it can chew .. they're not perfect .. but made sense in general .. Good Job !
