Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
A trio of paper-thin plots spun into a cutesy shard of stale ribbon candy.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
We're used to seeing Chinese costume dramas with Gong Li and action thrillers in which warlords do battle on horseback. But a Hollywood-esque rom-com set in China? That's a surprise.
Silly and slapsticky, "Love in Space" is too busy devising absurd set pieces to develop the characters or make their mutual attractions plausible.
Just when America's trade balance needs all the help it can get from Hollywood's global entertainment dominance comes the latest challenge to its supremacy: a China that can make chick flicks.
| Original Score: 3/5
Though it doesn't exactly have pretensions toward the rhythms of real life, the film does nail the breezy movie feeling of a buffed-and-polished romantic comedy.
Delightful, visually delicious rom-com involving the amorous tribulations and triumphs of three young couples should hit the Asian market bull's-eye as well-known Chinese cast and word-of-mouth perk and further fuel interest.
