Much worse than I had expected, 19 February 2010
Author: chiyaki Wu from Vietnam

After 40 minutes watching it patiently (searching for understandable lines),I had to turn it off in HUGE disappointment because my patience is limited. Indeed I WAS a fan of Jay Chou but recently he has let me down by both his singing and acting career. The movie "Bu neng shou de mi mi" made a good impression on me while Chou' latest movie is just a piece of crap!I really feel sorry for Chou's fans and ex-fans who put their trust in this unbearable movie. I could not understand how Jay Chou would acted as badly as he did in this movie. His appearance which made him look like a 40-year-old miserable man was extremely ridiculous (but it helped in some way 'cuz Chi Ling is 5 year older than him!) Can anyone who has watched this film find the 2 main characters (played by Chou and Chi Ling)feel for each others? Besides, the action scenes were pompous with nothing worth seeing. And Chi Ling's acting contributed greatly to the failure of this movie. When you look at her "acting skills", her facial expressions, you find nothing. She made you think that when she smiled it was not that she was cheerful and there were nothing sad enough to cry for when she cried (her reaction after being informed about her father' death is a great example)I wonder why such a model could have been selected to act in a movie? I have a piece of advice to you all: if you don't mind being treated or wasting your time, go see this movie!
