I went in not expecting much as my Chinese isn't perfect yet and I knew it was going to be a chore trying to keep up with the words but I found it wasn't too bad to understand. In the end though I just didn't really see it as that good of a film, the script was mediocre and the acting was at times overly dramatic, even for Chinese films. I thought it was just me at first as the girl next to me was crying during the film but my friend who was also watching turned to me and said "That was terrible..." and she is Chinese so i think it really was just not very good. My Chinese is coming along and I've started to really enjoy watching Chinese movies in Chinese if only for the interest of testing my language skills but this was just not worth it. I would have preferred to go see one of the others I've already seen than to sit through this one.
