Description: An aging Chinese immigrant embarks on a crazy adventure where only she can save the world from evil. While exploring other parallel universes, she will discover not only a way to fight, but also get to know herself much better.
This humor is very strong, although I wouldn't call it grip-your-stomach humor. But the ideas themselves and the way they are implemented cause such a big smile that it seems the jaw will lock. Have you ever seen a movie with a random joke that was used and forgotten? And here is a film where every element, even the smallest, is not only used but also improved every time. You would have to watch this piece twice just to see everything you accidentally missed at the beginning. Every time I thought - that's it, TOPS is here, I don't even know how to come up with something weirder and stupider - the film took me and put me in place by being able to create... well, probably one of the most original films full of fight and humor - the only thought - "do it again, please" .
Do you sometimes think "damn what a good idea" while watching a movie? It may not be the best film, but those ideas alone immediately clear everything up, as if you didn't ask for an answer, but you got an even too good one, and plenty of it. This movie has that feeling just NON-STOP, while you try to digest one interesting system or explanation, the movie already throws 3 more concepts at you. To tell the truth, there is so much here that it is difficult to even catch everything after the first time, well, at least the title in this regard corresponds to the film 100%. Still, the ending stuck the most, which doesn't have one answer or one bad character, showing that human connection always works on two fronts and that sometimes you need a "good shake" to put everything in its place.
How to create a film that is about even unfathomable concepts, such as multi-universes and different realities, but at the same time have a very cozy and simple story? No, I won't answer you, because it's hard to even imagine where to start, your head seems to explode just thinking about how much you had to plan ahead. No matter how many strange ideas are floating around here, the whole main anchor of the story is a simple family drama. Honestly, it's so simple that anyone can identify with these characters. Do you remember in the past how your parents didn't understand you, or how you don't always get ready to call home... The end of the film has such strong emotional scenes that I wanted to ask you - maybe it's enough to beat me like that? And more importantly to me, those scenes weren't over-the-top or over-dramatic… everything felt genuine…Overall - 10/10
