Not Rated
Runtime- 98 min.

Here we go, following up a bad movie with a just not so good movie.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

Almost identical to Shaolin Soccer in it’s genre and story style.  It loses a lot of points, however, by being strangely written and being very confusing at times.

Acting: 1/2

Jay Chou is moderately enjoyable in the lead, even though he needs to learn some human facial expressions.  The only other character I cared about was the kooky Wang Li, played by Eric Tsang.  Everyone else was wishy-washy, repetitive, or annoying.

Photography/Set: .5/2

*Vomit* I’d like to think that I’ve seen a decent amount of modern Asian films.  Certainly enough to know that their interior design architecture isn’t so terrible.

Sound/FX: 1/2

I’m kinda over wire-fu by now, especially when it’s this overdone.  It just feels worn to death.  It would be okay if any of the physical humor was actually funny.

Misc: 1/2

Is this really the entertainment the Asian continent is subjected to?  I wouldn’t mind being brutally oppressed after watching this film.


Probably skippable.


This blog does not condone or encourage oppression of any kind, I was just making a joke.
