Patrick Tam Yiu Man, Justin Cheung Kin Sing and Adam Pak Tin Nam two nights ago promoted their new film BREAKOUT BROTHERS (TOH YUK HING DAI) in Kowloon Bay. They were very happy that cinemas opened up again. Tam Yiu Man pointed out that the film took two years to make. Originally he looked forward to its early December release very much, he never expected that cinemas would be forced to close until now. He said, "At the time I worried that the release would be indefinitely delayed, ultimately everyone put a lot of effort into the production. The entire film reminded me of when we made TWO THUMBS UP (CHUNG FUNG CHEH), at the time I was the youngest actor. Now this time I am the oldest. Everyone's acting is great, each is skilled in his own way. Since I am old I play old and put on senior make up, the make up test took 4 hours. During the shoot putting on and taking off the make up took a long time. Adam often showed off his muscles, Ah Sing had an abalone brush hair, Cheung Kai Chung was even shaped like a refrigerator. Everyone contributed a lot."
Cheung Kin Sing said that BREAKOUT after a few preview screenings ran into forced cinema closure. Although he felt helpless, he could do nothing about it. Thus after the cinemas opened again he immediately went to the movies to observe the audience reaction. He thought that the atmosphere was great, some friends even booked shows to show their support. They said that BREAKOUT had a very Hong Kong flavor, which made him feel very encouraged. Adam admitted that he worried about the film not knowing when its release would be postponed to. Now that finally the audience is able to see it, many friends said that they would go and watch it.
