Clearly a film that has been made for showing in 3D (which I didn’t).
While it was a bit silly (particularly the monsters) there were a few things which I really liked looking at. There’s a gorgeous scene with some stained glass which looked absolutely stunning. And the bungee-jumping blue ladies were magnificent.
I also appreciated the US/China collaboration on a film of this scale and this genre, the fact that the female lead (played by Tian Jing) was independently kick-ass, and there was no need to manufacture a romantic entanglement to motivate the story.
Beyond that though, just a bit silly.
However, that did give me time to realise that both Matt Damon and Andy Lau have effectively played the same role – in The Departed and its original version Infernal Affairs respectively. Wonder if they had a chat about it?
