Don't miss the scene after the credits roll.
29 September 2019 | by KADCSee all my reviews

Overlooking Péng's poor age makeup and the disappointingly unexpected state of his and Deng's characters in the final before-credits scene, this was an enjoyable seven-star comic drama (dramady) about a man getting the opportunity to know his father when he was his age, but the poignant scene a minute after the credits start earns Duckweed an extra star. Han made a wise choice pulling this emotional scene from the middle of the movie and placing at the end, bookmarking this movie between two of its best highlights, which allows you to forgive the poorly conceived action scene in the final act. I would have preferred a different conclusion to this story, but overall this movie's strengths far outweigh its weaknesses.
