I went in this movie with high hopes. But after watching it, all I can say is it is overrated, overly hyped about. No doubt the movie has all the best ingrediants... such as great actors and director, beautiful scenes and decors, pretty clothings. However, the dishes turned out blend and tasteless despite it looking beautiful.
The movie started of awful with awfully lots of CGI. TO make things worst, the CGI were fake and the people are practically running in air! I find it hard to watch the whole movie by not laughing. I can't believe how ridiculous they make this movie. For instances how Cecilia was being flown like a kite and falls off diving into this ridiculously small window.
I seriously wonders what Kaige is thinking. I was throughly disappointed with the movie. However, I think if it weren't for Nicholas Tse and Jang Dong Gun, the movie would have scored a 0.
