When it comes to actresses, Angelababy’s acting is unfortunately not the first one to come to mind in the c-ent industry. Her past performance in the 2017 drama The General and I did not exactly get glowing reviews. Nor did her much improved performance in last year’s My True Friend opposite Deng Lun fare any better. However, it appears the model turned actress’s career is now taking a step in the right direction with the release of the trailer for her latest project A Murderous Affair in Horizon Tower which garnered praise from Netizens applauding her performance in the three minute and ten second long clip.
Angelababy plays the café owner Zhong Meibao in the drama adaption of author Chen Xue‘s 2015 novel Skyscraper. In the whodunit suspense drama, investigators are baffled by the unexplained circumstances of her death. So while not exactly the star of the show, her presence is seen in various flashbacks while the stars of the drama scramble to make sense of her death. Further adding to the show’s Cluedo-esque vibes, residents of the building have their own secrets and motives they want hidden.
The trailer is chocfull of emotional scenes of the actress crying. With regards to Angelababy’s acting, netizens have been saying that the fear and sorrow in her eyes is so much more believable this time. Others have pointed out that her acting has become more natural and is no longer one dimensional. Nonetheless, there are naysayers still but it’s definitely a small win to celebrate for Angelababy who has long received criticism for her acting.
A Murderous Affair in Horizon Tower drops anchors August 19 on Tencent.
I haven’t seen many of her dramas but I think she did great in My True Friend with Deng lun. So I’m happy people are praising her and giving her a chance . I’m looking forward to this drama as well.
How is anyone supposed to take her seriously with those botox duck lips? That one shot, really emphasize the amount of plastic surgery she has had on her face.
Agreed. Can’t get past her overly done botox face. That picture of her laying in the crime screen does not look natural
Almost all actresses do plastic surgery and botox too. She look very natural in the picture, no make up and crazy white filter. The people I can’t take it seriously are those who filter themselves so white, whiter than white people and the bright color white. At least ABB is yellow here.
Actually she acted very well in those old Hong Kong movies when she was younger.
Lol, I agreed. She’s still trying to be pretty even though she’s supposed to be dead…
Y’all should check out the trailer. I was pleasantly surprised to see her acting Cause it actually looked…good. Good job Baby!
I like her in Love 020. This trailer showcased her acting quite well. I would be watching this :).
Watched it. Liked it. Baby was good. Also enough about her so called PS face. Sound more like mean, bitter jealousy than constructive criticism to me. O and by the way, her character IS suppose to die beautifully.
