Film, 2008

Disclaimer: I watched the English dub of this movie. I was pretty disappointed in this movie. I thought it was going to be a lot of fun, but it spends most of it’s time making a play for high character drama (including TWO overblown death scenes right in a row) and isn’t particularly successful at it. It’s still a Steven Chow movie, there’s fun, cartoony action and goofy humor, but not jammed into every square inch like we’re used to from him, and it doesn’t seem as cleaver. But, if you’re just looking for something to show the kids for the night, you could do a lot worse. It’s not baseless short attention span bait like most kids movies these days. 2.5
