Cast & Credits
STORY: Although this is set 4 years later, there is definitely a huge contrast between the plots. For instance, the movie focuses more on the relationships (Gu Li / Gu Yuan ; Jian Xi / Lin Xiao / Chong Guang) than singling on characters. It teaches us how to move forward in life, build stronger relationships, know how to overcome obstacles, gain ways into someone's heart. It shows us how to cope, how to love, how to protect, how to forgive, and etc. Definitely a lot of lessons taught and a lot of values learned. There are some extremely sad moments, but there are also some extremely funny moments. It's a bumpy ride but hey, lots of eye candy!
ACTING/CAST: I have to admit, I was sucked in by Cheney Chen in Tiny Times 1.0 and that's why I continued to watch the sequel. The first movie wasn't really as good as I expected from the trailer. He played a bigger role in this movie, which I was really excited about. Though his acting towards the end could improve, I really loved his character throughout the movie. Of course, the other actresses/actors were well developed as well, especially Amber Kuo and Yang Mi! Didn't see much of Bea Hayden in this movie, and Miss Lin showed her professional side by acting out more than one side of her character, which was especially surprising! I might have liked it better if the story focused more on Bea and Miss, because they're also the main leads.
MUSIC: ABSOLUTELY ADORED THE MUSIC IN THIS MOVIE. Like wow, they really put in more effort for this sequel. Though I still don't like the ending song, it was the same one used for Tiny Times 1.0.
REWATCH VALUE: I gave this a 9 because it's a movie you probably want to watch two times in a row at once then probably don't want to touch for another few months. But for me, because of Cheney Chen, I kind of don't want to leave this movie alone for a couple of weeks. The first time I watched it, I was just seeing how it would turn out, but at the end I got surprised, so I'm going to re-watch it to see all the missing details again. I would definitely recommend this to people who watched Tiny Times 1.0.
Plus point it made me love Yang Mi and Cheney Chen. This can be an unpopular opinion but I really didn't like Yang Mi in Ten Miles but loved here. Also simply hated Gu Li 's character. I swear she annoyed me from the moment she came up on the screen. I don't see the level headed mature woman they say she is, just a spoilt rich brat who thinks her problems are the worst and basically puts everyone around her down.
And also who in the world screams "if you two get married, don't ever send me the invitations. I'll fill them with curses" when they find their boyfriend cheating on with you? This shows just the mindset of the writer XD Although I admit Jian Xi did bad. I actually liked him before and was conflicted between him and Chong Guang but not anymore.
