I’m glad I used my Unlimited card for this one (and didn’t actually hand over money to see it)
Right, I have no objection to “foreign” films – nor Kung Fu movies – I loved “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” – however this is just utter tat.
Bad CGI fights (and this is so bad it makes the third Matrix film look realistic) combined with a truely dreadful plot about the residents of a slum fighting a gang, Kung-Fu masters with special powers (like being able to shout very loud, or jump like a toad) – a generous helping of bullet time effects, and the sum adds up to nothing.
The trailer made this out to be a comedy action film in the style of Jackie Chan – it’s not – the few jokes are in the trailer. It tries too hard to be too much.
Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear.
