Heartwarming movie but actors could be better.
1 August 2018 | by cdemonjhdSee all my reviews

Ok first of all before my review, I just want to say do not listen to any of these dumb reviews by American reviewers. Clearly you cannot fully experience the movie when you only read the subtitles. Some people can enjoy subtitle movies and some do not. Do you honestly think a grown 45 year old American man can enjoy a Chinese movie? Hell no! Stick to your own language unless you 1. Really like the movie/plot 2. Enjoy Subtitles. Ok now for the review! The movie is really interesting and definitely catches your attention in the start. The movie does get slightly boring in between the start and the climax, but thats what most movies are! This movie has aspects of comedy, family, adventure, and of course drama. This movie does lack some experienced support actors and you will definitely notice it. The plot is also kinda messy and somethings I really don't know where I am. Other than that, I would highly recommend this movie!
