Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

My understanding is that this is more of a flat-out comedy for Chinese audiences, which must have a different sense of tone and timing. We're on another whole wavelength, but on the plus side, we can appreciate it as a satire of cinematic hubris and capitalistic greed. You Ge reveals real depth to his comic lead, and Donald Sutherland has a moment of genuine sweetness at a crucial point. It's a failure due to cultural barriers (and being way too slow), but it's intriguing nonetheless.
