Five Water Boys (2021) Review


The movie “Five Water Boys”, starring Xin Yunlai, Feng Xiangkun, Li Xiaoqian, Wu Junting, Wang Chuan, and Xin Boqing, has released its trailer and poster.

The movie directed by Song Hao Lin and produced by Beijing Light Pictures, tells the story of five high school boys with very different personalities who accidentally join the school’s boys’ synchronised swimming team. But on the first day of training the coach has an accident and Zhang Wei not only has to take on coaching duties but is devastated to discover that none of his teammates really want to practice synchronised swimming. The five boys who are tricked into coming to the team are rushed to the top, and the teenagers who initially resist synchronised swimming take the “displeasure” of being underestimated by everyone seriously and persevere to the end, eventually completing a very special performance in a surprising way.

A team of middle-aged high school boys takes on the challenge of swimming.

Unlike the usual youth films, Five Water Boys is about an unprecedented high school boys’ synchronised swimming team. In this trailer, five high school students are left without a coach or venue, ridiculed by their classmates, and tricked by the owner of the oceanarium into working as hard labor …… From resentful resistance to fighting and moving forward together, this group of zero-based teenagers is growing up while solving a variety of problems. In the last summer before entering their senior year, the ordinary ones have the most extraordinary sparkle.

In addition to the youthful vibrancy of chasing their youthful dreams, the teaser trailer also reveals the comedic quality of the film, and surprisingly, Sin Pak Ching has turned his previous image upside down, playing a somewhat unkempt and down-on-his-luck owner of an oceanarium in the film. It’s also exciting to see the sparks between the scruffy “human” coach and the hot-headed high school students.

Poster for “Five Boys in a Puddle”: The highlight of the youth. The “Superman Edition” poster was released together with the teaser trailer. In the poster, four boys with very different personalities playfully lift up Xin Yunlai who is posing as Superman, while Xin Yunlai shows a cool and tugging expression. The poster is simple and clean, and the five boys not only show off their superior bodies but also their youthful, realistic sense of youth that is unique to this stage. Even if their dreams are treated as a joke, they still want to achieve them fearlessly, like Superman.

The film “Five Teenagers Who Puffed Water” is scheduled for 13 August in the summer, a continuation of the brand reputation of the light youth category films, with a superb cast of newcomers! “We are a group of ordinary people, but in a summer like this, we did something like this.”

The film will be a memorable experience for you about school age. Young dreams, desires, and enthusiasm will make you more positive about the future. This is a movie worth watching, let’s watch it together. Very relaxing and emotional.
