Audience Reviews for Chinese Odyssey 2002

½

This film spoofs a wide range of popular Chinese movies. It?s not quite Wong Kar-Wai but he did produce it, it certainly helps if you are familiar with his works. Most of the comedy isn't hugely funny, a lot is lost in translation but every so often there is a real belly laugh inducer. Fun but not fantastic.

Ok, Maybe there is such thing as Chinese humor and Eastern humor, and maybe I shouldn't call it a bad humor here, but I think I can distinguish between a good movie and a bad one, a good acting and poor acting. And as far as bad ones - there is plenty of them in China, in Russia or in US. Always will be.
