Eye of the Storm

Eye of the Storm tells the emotional effect that an infectious disease can have on the ones who are at the forefront of the battle. I can see how the film tries to portray different personalities and how they each sacrifice for the greater good, but it just feels flat. It tries to paint this canvass with all these different colors but nothing really jumps out. There is also not a whole lot of story going on here, and it doesn't have a satisfactory closure at the end. Audience is thrown around in each character's emotional struggle during the pandemic but it is hard to latch onto anyone specifically.

Wang Bojie and Xiang Jieru truly portrayed the struggles of a doctor's emotional journey.

When I watched this film, I didn't see the trailer or read the movie description. I went in with the expectation that it might be a current affairs discussion related to COVID-19. To my surprise, the moment I saw the characters using old-style mobile phones, I knew it was going to be a story about the tragic events at a Taiwanese hospital during the SARS outbreak over a decade ago.

Honestly, a single movie can't cover everything, and it can't delve into the depth and poignancy of each individual story the way a short series like 'Hoping' did. 'Eye of the Storm' seems to focus more on the discussion of responsibility. Career choices and job positions are individual decisions and perceptions, but society relies on the functioning of many roles. So, from the beginning, Wang Bojie's portrayal of Dr. Xia becomes the central axis of the entire film. The ending also echoes the sacrifices made by this central character.

I recommend watching this film and appreciating the contributions of the many real-life heroes in our society.

Quite emotional

The SARS outbreak happened 20 years ago and it was similar to COVID in that it happened suddenly and was highly infectious. This movie will probably remind people of how it was when the COVID pandemic just started. Everything was chaotic and the medical field had the most responsibility, this people who worked in hospitals especially had the most difficult time.

This movie had some emotional scenes which nearly brought me to tears. I think the cast did an excellent job and it showed the different sides of medical professionals. I liked the pacing too and honestly the ending didn't disappoint me. Instead I was relieved that it was somewhat of an open ending.
