The Worst Movie I Have Ever Seen., 4 July 2011
Author: James Wan from China

I have watched this on Youtube, through an VPN from China, The foundation of CCP is pure to Chinese's people. It's the biggest disaster to the Chinese. The movie made me feel sick, Full of lies in this movie. Nothing worse I can describe this. All the CCP member in China are forced to watch it! Some are required to watch it time and time again, to make it can get the ticket of number 100 million USD. No other movie is allow to show it theater The whole movie is keep saying: "no one can save China, except the CCP." This's a stupid and ridiculous joke! CCCP story will happen again here. I'd like to see how things happen within 10 years. Generally, this is the worst movie i have ever seen.
