Originally Wu Jing, one of the protagonist, only agreed to show up in one scene, but since he was the only big star of the film, the director Frant changed the script and kept putting him in more and more scenes. One day of shooting became weeks, then months. Wu jing's pay for each movie is around 10 million us dollars. After weeks of shooting, the director asked him that, since the movie was over-budget, maybe he didn't mind not getting paid. Wu jing loved the director and the film so much, not only that he agreed not getting paid, he invested his own money of about 9 million us dollars in it. Many people thought Wu Jing was conned by the director at that time. In fact, without Wu's name, the movie wouldn't have been sold to so many theaters at all. If director Frant is the father of the film, Wu Jing is like its guardian angel. This kind of blessing rarely happened in Chinese film industry. See more »
I mean, when is the last time you hear people clap in a cinema? And when is the last time you find 80% of them remained seated after the movie and waited until the lights up knowing there won't be any extra scene?
I know there are some awkward lines and scenes but overall I can bear with it.
And, besides the fantastic visual effects, it also surprised me with a couple Chinese(language) jokes - didn't expect that coming.
It could be better but it is definitely worth watching. Much much better than the other Chinese movies. I really enjoyed that 2 hours.
