Not Good Enough
17 September 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

" Shanghai Fortress " was for sure not a memorable movie. Even having watched it two nights ago, I can't even recall the actual point of this movie.

The movie had a weak plot. The whole romance was just boring and it didn't add anyting exciting to the plot, as there was zero development. The friendship betweet the "pilots" was really good and it gave a youthfull spin to the movie. The acting was good as well. In addition, some of the CGI were good, but others were just horrible.

Overall, the story was bad. There was no plot, just a faint idea of where they wanted this movie to go.

So, three out of ten.
