OK but far below Zhang's level
14 December 2009 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I saw this in the cinema yesterday without even knowing it was a Yimou Zhang movie, my friend told me afterwards that it was a Yimou film and i couldn't really believe him. It seems Yimou Zhang is looking for something new to do because is different that anything i've ever seen from him. To start with i haven't seen the original form the Coen brothers but this was pretty much a comedy with quite some slapstick and i don't know if the original is that way too. The film is OK but is missing what makes Zhang's previous movies good i cant put my finger on it but i didn't think Zhang did a great job on this, maybe because the fact he is new to comedy. The actors give a solid performance but can't lift the movie to higher heights its just an average movie for a boring Sunday to me.I must say i did get a few very good laughs out of it although sometimes in between the funny bits it seemed to turn into a drama which didn't really help it at all.Zhang perhaps could have focused on just the comedy or drama instead of trying to mix which didn't work out in the end. So in the end its an average movie but far below Zhang's capability as a gifted film maker.
