After getting tired of paying $30-40 for Blu-ray imports, I’ve streamed my first Amazon Prime movie last night.

The movie itself (拆彈專家 - forgive the typically generic English name “Shock Wave”) is a pretty decent watch. Won some local awards in 2017, and lots of urban eye candy for the city nerds.

Bomb disposal is a fairly relevant thing in Hong Kong as un-exploded American WWII ordnance is routinely found buried in construction sites. Terrorism, however, has not really been a thing there and that’s where this movie stretches way the hell into fiction.
