CJ7 Reviews

March 7, 2008
CJ7 is heavy on slapstick and may appeal to very young viewers who won't need to bother much with the subtitles.
March 7, 2008
Its occasionally endearing schmaltz is eclipsed by bizarre shifts in tone and a lackluster story.
March 7, 2008
Above all the movie has a heart, a mind and a gentleness of spirit that parents will welcome, while the frequent flights of fancy ensure that no child will be left behind.
March 6, 2008
Shows signs that Chow is trying to put more thought and heart into his films, with uneven success.
March 6, 2008
Chow's latest might sell a lot of toys; still, it can't sell tears and the great gooey third act burns out like a meteor.
March 6, 2008
What could possibly have possessed Stephen Chow, the mad scientist of slapstick chopsocky who made Kung Fu Hustle, to follow up that psychedelic pinwheel of a movie by entangling himself in CJ7?
March 6, 2008
It is safe to say that no one makes movies quite like Hong Kong's clown impresario Stephen Chow.
March 6, 2008
If CJ7 is a slapstick action picture that doffs its cap to children's delight in casual brutality, it's also a sweet-tempered and oddly beautiful piece of schmaltz that sends up its own populist family values without ever betraying them.
March 5, 2008
A hyperactive, wishful-thinking special effects fantasy suitable for family outings.
March 5, 2008
Chow's comic fantasy is a sop to kiddie sentimentality that barely skirts rancid cutesiness by sheer virtue of its strange details.
March 4, 2008
Lacks any convincing magic or heart.
March 3, 2008
Even fans of Stephen Chow should probably skip his latest, kid-friendly flick. It's only sporadically funny, and often grating, and at some point you realize that you've been suckered into watching an extended advertisement for a toy.
February 5, 2008
Heavy on CGI slapstick and light on meaningful emotional content.
