This one was a surprise. I expected some PG thing judging by the cover. This was actually quite a serious film about a Chinese American man struggling with his identity. Hayden is actually a little too sugary in the part and doesn't quite fit, but I guess her character does lighten things up a bit. I was really tempted to switch it off ten minutes in, but I'm glad I perservered with it.

Shanghai Kiss delivers a vivid and clear message: love transcends all.

The acting was very captivating. Ken's performance warms on you as the movie goes on and he really wows you the more you see him. Hayden of course was adorable and sweet as always with her role. Her character's hope, faithfulness, and never-give-up attitude is infectious and desirable and inspirational.

Also, Ken's quest for his roots takes him back to a place that ultimately helps him to see his present place much more clearly and better than before. It's a great film about discovery and journey, sacrifice, and ultimately love.

It's too bad this film didn't really hit it on the big screen but the performances are superb and you have to love Hayden's voice - she's a great singer. And she is cute.

4 and a half stars.

Panettiere was way too bubbly/sugary sweet. Ken Leung was alright as an Asian New Yorker, who several times kind of showed the mannerisms of Woody Allen. Ken as Liam struggles with dating. The dialog sounded like it came from a film school assignment trying to sound smart by dropping classic film quotes and trying to be "real" and idiosyncratically L.A. with all the women Liam picks up. It didn't hold my attention. I hit the fast forward, as it were, on Hulu several times.

Faintly disturbing. Panettiere is a sweetheart though.

Dislikable characters drag this movie down for most of it's running length, but it gets better at the end.

Shanghai Kiss is a small budget movie that I got to see premiere at the Maui Film Festival. It's a very good film about an Asian-American man trying to find himself. It's a serious movie with a good blend of humor in it. Definately worth watching if you get the chance to see it.

It was so slow. I really tried to get into it but I didn't enjoy it at all. I ended up only watching 3/4 of it. Don't bother.

Hese was a movie that totally caught me by surprise. I am not Chinese, and have never been to Shangai, so cannot say how accurate this movie is on certain points - but what I can say is that it's a very fun, funny, film that I very much enjoyed.

The lighting in this movie is well placed making for a beautiful image experience. Actors are cute and cuddly giving a smooth acting profile that portrays a characterization that is fun and authentic. Locations are a little bland considering the cities visited so this is more about the focus on the human aspect which lessens the visual quality. Nibbles: Peking duck and Pancakes.

There is one thing i love on this movie. That is looking at what i call the most beautiful girl on this planet earth; Hyden Panettiere.

Some very good performances, although direction is a little uneven. The movie is slow to get traction, but improves as it goes along. Worth seeing.

I was surprisingly refreshed by the story, scenery and characters of this film. Liam's character is relatable and believable and it is brought out by the supporting cast. The character Adelaide is fun, hot and mysterious and makes you want to keep watching to see what she is all about. I enjoyed this film and if you've done any travelling yourself and your parents were born anywhere other than the u.s or canada, you too will be able to connect and enjoy this movie!

This was an unexpected surprise, this is a really well done romantic comedy with an outstanding job by the leads - Ken Leung, Hayden Panattiere and Kellu Hu. Hu is truly amazing. Very well written, excellent location footage. A very entertaining movie.
