The Lost Lotteries 2022 Movie Review Poster Trailer Online
Needless to say that I hadn’t even heard about this 2022 Thai crime comedy titled “The Lost Lotteries” prior to stumbling upon it while perusing the Asian catalogue on Netflix. And with it being an asian comedy that I hadn’t already seen, of course I opted to do so.
Writers Ekachai Uekrongtham and Prueksa Amaruji put together a script for the movie that sort of fell short of entertaining me. Sure, there were elements in the narrative that was enjoyable, but as a whole then “The Lost Lotteries” just felt like a swing and a miss. The movie didn’t bring about much of any laughs, maybe a smirk or two here and there, so it wasn’t an effective comedy.
And I have to admit that the storyline itself felt somewhat pointless and also superficial. You don’t really get to delve into anything here and get to properly know the characters. Once the movie came to an end, I must admit that I didn’t even know the names of half of the characters in the movie.
The acting performances in “The Lost Lotteries” were fair enough. I wasn’t familiar with anyone on the cast list here, but the actors and actresses were doing good enough jobs with the limitations imposed on them by a subpar script.
For a Thai comedy then director Prueksa Amaruji failed to stand out among so many comedies on the market. This is not a Thai comedy that I would recommend for fans of the Asian comedy genre.
