94% Tremendous Drama
I’m not interested in basketball at all, but this drama made me totally love this sport. On every two or three episodes, there is a match and even though it’s fake, I really love it. First of all, the camera effects are incredible. Also, the super jumps and flying gives the story a more interesting image. Also, the actors are really handsome when they play basketball.
The character of Show is funnier. His acting is really excellent; he can make us laugh so easily, when he’s sad, he could make up cry and he’s so serious when he’s playing. On the other side, Jerry plays a serious character. He’s often expressionless and he rarely laughs. Even though Chun is supposed to be an important character, he… isn’t. Also, we don’t really get what is the real meaning of his character.
The storyline is well written and well represented. It’s not only a romance plot. However, we can easily guess that it’s a Taiwanese drama, since the acting is so exaggerated.
The music is awesome. The opening and another soundtrack were sung by Show Lo. They are both magnificent. Jerry Yang sang the ending song. In my opinion, the best songs are “Superman” and “Jue Dui Wu Di” from NESE. Every time I hear them, it just reminds me of the drama.
Hot Shot is magnificent. People don’t need to like basketball to like this drama. Also, if you are a fan of Show Lo or Jerry Yan, you will NOT be deceived.
