Even though the film doesn't have a special meaning, the style and cinematography is just great. I love the colours and the idea of the story. The only problem I had with the film was the editing. I think that after the first part of the film, the film should have been longer. There should have been a better editing. If you like Akira Kurosawa films, you will love this film. I recommend that you watch this film and then go and watch Kurosawa's RASHOMON and TANGO AND BUNNYDOO.

THE BLACK WATER VILLAGE is a fun, funny movie that doesn't take itself seriously. It is very heart-warming and full of genuine laughs. Sure, it may be a bit stereotypical and preachy, but it does that very well. I think people will enjoy this movie because they are all familiar with Jackie's other films. The movie is very reminiscent of the first Jackie Chan movie, THE PIANIST. A young boy finds himself in a village with some superstitious locals who do not like him because he's been stealing and behaving like a village idiot. It is Jackie's turn to step in and help the boy. The village's superstition is broken, and the boy returns home to live happily ever after. If you like comedy, you will love THE BLACK WATER VILLAGE. * out of * stars

This movie is so entertaining. The fights, the music, the special effects, the love story, the action, the friendship and the sense of humor. I'm glad I watched this film.

This is one of the best films I have ever seen. It has a good plot, nice acting, and excellent camera work. I would recommend this film to anyone, young or old. The music is great, and really compliments the story. I wish it was out on DVD, because it deserves it. It is a must-see for anyone who has ever thought about suicide, or those who have gone through it. The ending is so beautiful. I love it!

In China the title of this film is the title of the last two movies in the movies of Yuen Woo Ping and Yuen Wah Wai. And in the movie title you can see the stars names. It is a comedy, full of action and fun. Although the movie doesn't have much originality it is still very enjoyable to watch. The acting of the main characters is very good. Acting is the main thing to consider in a movie like this. The two female leads are excellent. The director is a very good storyteller. I don't know if the movie is good or not but if you watch it you'll have a good time.

Hemingway & Gellhorn's masterpiece about the ancient Chinese belief in heaven and earth, as well as the different philosophies of men and the supernatural, and its spiritual side. The great movie master Hou Hsiao-hsien is a very strong factor to add, and what we see is the greatest of the Chinese cinematic masterpieces ever. More than the other Shaw Brothers films, this film was more than good because it was different. It was at that time (1927) when all films started to be made for the purpose of entertainment. It was a time when the people who were born in the year of 1925 could have been right there, right next to them. That's why I feel it was the greatest of the Shaw Brothers films. Nowadays, I can't imagine any other films being made today, but in 1927, it was exactly the same. When the film was made, the world was full of new ideas, and it was so fresh. People were growing up to be civilized and educated. They had a lot of needs. And that's why the film was a masterpiece. It was a lot more important then. The directors of the Shaw Brothers movies were a lot more unique and thought-provoking. This film was made after the success of "To Live and Die in L.A." (1932). That was also a masterpiece. You can't have a film made in 1927 without special effects and special sound, and the "to live and die in L.A." was so well done, it was truly incredible. But what the Shaw Brothers is doing today, it is brilliant, and I can't imagine anyone else could do it. To me, this film is definitely the best film of all time. The main reason I give this film a 10 is because the Shaw Brothers films are so exceptional. And I believe they are the best movies of all time. I can't think of any other films that are better.

My father is an animator, and I've seen many of his movies. This is one of his best films ever. You'll be laughing out loud with this film, as well as very much enjoying the fantastic action sequences. The two leads are both incredible, and the script is hilarious. The message that the film wants to give is in no way a bit simplistic, it's clear that it's hard-hitting and really has some real force behind it. One of my favorite scenes has a car crash. The car crashes and falls down into a river. The crash is so funny, that it's really hard to tell when the laughing stopped. The car in the beginning is like a giant toy, and the one in the end is a little more awkward, but still very funny. This movie is one of the best of the decade. I highly recommend it to everyone, it's amazing.

Now I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of Yang Jian in the other roles he played, but he is wonderful as a good natured man. The supporting cast are perfect as well, especially the dog, and the very animated cameo of Jack Black. If you haven't seen it yet, rent it. I promise you'll love it. <3

First, the story is outstanding, and I think it's a very difficult story to tell in a simple way. One could say it's a great movie, but I'm afraid it's not the same as a masterpiece, because if it were, then this movie would deserve to be mentioned as one of the greatest movies ever. This movie can't be easily compared to other movies, and that's the beauty of it. To see a film that can't be compared to another. It doesn't have to be compared to "The Lord of the Rings", or even "The Matrix", because these movies are clearly different. It's difficult to explain, but this movie is different, and this is what makes it a great movie. I'm very surprised at the very low rating this movie has on IMDb, because it deserves a higher rating. If you want to watch a great movie, then don't hesitate to watch this, because it's absolutely worth it.

I watched this movie in Taipei, Taiwan and was so shocked and awestruck by it. The movie really makes you feel how wonderful and nice the old world was, and how bad it was today. It makes you feel how brave the young generation is and how much courage they have. I really hope that we can find a way to end the horrible wars in our country, and I really hope that we can end the environmental problems in our country. I really think that this movie is a great tool to spread awareness about our issues, and help spread awareness of our environment. I love this movie, and I want to spread the word about this movie and give this movie a lot of love.

This is the best movie I've seen in a while. The plot is very straight forward but the comedy is so much more than just a bunch of slapstick. A lot of people were not impressed with the fight scenes, but in my opinion they are the best part of the movie. It is easy to take it for the fact that the movie is a comedy, but there is a lot more behind the fights. The story is a lot better then expected and you will like the characters. The acting is very good, even though you will think that there is something wrong with the actors, they still do their job. In my opinion, this is the best movie to come out of China for a long time.

A simple, funny movie with a message. A family in mourning, lost in an avalanche, has their son try and survive the avalanches. It is an amazingly well written story, with a really cool sense of humor. One of the most amazing things about this movie is the acting. There is nothing that is not believable in this film. If you like Chinese humor, this is the movie for you.

I have just seen this film at the Beijing Film Festival. I cannot understand why the English subtitles are in Chinese. I am not Chinese and have no idea what the subtitles mean, but I will find out when I have time. I saw this film at the Chinese premiere and it was shown with subtitles in English. I had to read the subtitles before I could understand what they were saying. The characters were very well developed, and there were many funny situations. The cinematography was really good, and the direction was very creative. I hope the director will release the film in the United States, because it was such a great experience. The DVD contains both English and Chinese versions, and I believe it is the only way to see this film. I would love to see a European version of this film.

Well the good thing about this movie is that it is based on a Chinese Fairy tale and it makes sense to me that the movie is not a comedy but a character-driven film.I don't know how many times you watch the same film and find it boring, this is one of the reasons why you don't have the patience to make an effort to enjoy a movie and just go along with the story.

When I first saw the film at the cinema, I had a blast! The cast is truly great, especially Zhang Ziyi, who does a great job at playing a blind woman and I really can't get enough of her acting. I also liked the wonderful chemistry between Ziyi and the character of Qiao Jun, who plays her. As for the rest of the cast, I really enjoyed them all. The story of the film is really a good one and its very different from other martial arts films. I think that this film was written and directed really well. The story is really great, the acting is also great, the cinematography is also great. I really liked the unique way in which this film was filmed. The characters are really great and I really can't understand how people can compare this film to the original. The music is really good too, I really enjoyed it. I really can't believe that this film is getting so much bad press. I really loved this film and I hope that the film is picked up by more people. The whole cast does a great job, especially Zhang Ziyi, who really brought the character of Qiao Jun to life.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I've seen this movie three times in the past three weeks. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more. It's just wonderful. I can't believe that my English teacher would recommend it. She couldn't get through it. She couldn't even get through the first scene. The dialog, the acting, the story, everything is so incredible that I can't get the title. I'd really like to see it again. I hope to get my hands on the DVD. If you've seen it, go out and rent it, buy it, whatever. The DVD will be awesome. If you haven't seen it, go out and rent it.

Well, that's not what I was expecting, what I was hoping for was the story of a high school boy that gets kidnapped by a girl, and the way he fights back against the thugs that were after him, because the kidnapped girl was being forced into prostitution. I had a friend that went to the video store to rent this film and I got the wrong DVD. The next day, I rented the movie, and sure enough, it was not the one I had rented. Then I realized, they had changed the language and subtitle from English to Chinese. Now I'm just a little confused. I guess I'll have to rent the original Chinese version of the movie. This movie has great action, great costumes, great cinematography, great actors, and great plot. I can't wait to buy the DVD of the original Chinese version. I think I'll go ahead and buy the DVD for all my friends that aren't able to buy the Chinese version.

Now I have to admit I am not a big fan of comedies. I don't enjoy the whole humor. They are usually full of crass, stupid and crude jokes, and usually involve the so-called "social and cultural values". If the humor doesn't fit with that it isn't funny. However, this is one movie I could watch again and again, and still find it funny. The plot and the jokes are awesome. Even though it's not a long movie, it has a few scenes that last a few minutes and stay in your mind long after. The acting is great. I am not the biggest fan of Jackie Chan, but I think he can do comedy well. I love his Hong Kong movies, and he's always entertaining. I don't want to say anything more about the movie, but just watch it and make up your own mind. It's worth your time.

I found this movie to be an incredible piece of work, from the cast to the cinematography. This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. What is the storyline about? Why did it need a sequel? What was that about? The movie keeps you in suspense for a while but also creates a sense of deja vu that will stick with you for the rest of your life. I loved it so much, I watched it four times in a week. There are parts in the movie that are funny, there are parts that are emotionally moving and there are parts that are a bit slow at times. But all in all, I enjoyed every moment of this movie and I love it. I think everyone should give this movie a try.

I've seen this movie twice already and I thought it was even better the second time. It has a very funny plot with a lot of action and it makes you think. The ending was nice and emotional. It also has a very long, funny, and entertaining movie. I give it a 10 out of 10.

This is a very good movie for kids to watch. There are some adult jokes in it, but it's not meant to be a comedy, just a movie. I have to say I really enjoyed it. I think I liked this movie more than I thought I would. I think the movie's storyline is very interesting, and it's funny. There are several different kinds of jokes, but it's mostly a comedy. The plot is very exciting and it's very well told. I think it's very similar to the movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". There are some differences in the story, but I think they were the same. It's really great to watch this movie, because you get to see a story that's very interesting, and it's funny, and it's good to watch. It's not meant to be a serious movie, but a comedy. I think it's good to watch.

A great film that's packed with great characters. I love all of them, even the annoying one that's trying to be friendly, you know. And the mastermind of all of this, the guy who's an assassin and really wants to fight the people that kill his friends, he's an evil guy and there's a lot of awesome scenes with that. In the end the bad guys win because they're a little smarter than the other characters, because they use an amazing weapon that makes them invincible, and they win because the bad guys don't even know how to use it, so it's a really good movie that's really easy to watch. I recommend it to everyone, but if you're not into the whole great martial arts, watch this instead, I'm sure you won't regret it. Don't hate me for saying it, I'm a super great martial artist myself.

Everytime i see this movie it makes me laugh till my stomach hurts. Liu Kailei is a beautiful lady and she gives a lot of body and power to the movie. The movie is a good entertainment for young people. The scene of the crying baby is an art, the music is perfect, the emotions are touching, and the romantic scene is the most romantic scene i have ever seen in a movie. I love this movie and i love this woman as well.

I am a huge fan of the original, but this movie is not that good. I was expecting a lot from this movie, but it was not that good. The first 30 minutes were great, and I really enjoyed the second half of the movie. But I didn't like the ending. It was too abrupt and they just left it out. I would have liked to see a more developed story about the people who were in the book. The main characters in the book were very important to the story. It would have been nice to see more of them. I would have liked to see a movie that had more depth to the characters. The main character in the book was very strong and kind, but he wasn't the main character in the movie. The movie was good, but it could have been better.

I can't say I was expecting a lot from this movie, but I was not expecting the way it turned out. It is a very well-done movie. The plot is very simple, but it's very clever and well-written. It's full of good jokes and very funny. It has a very good sense of humor and it is very easy to relate to the characters. I really liked the movie, and I'm going to see it again.

The story of a Chinese man who can't get rid of his bad luck, and the story of a woman who is a member of a cult that worships him. This film is a great comedy. It's not as serious as most Chinese comedies, but still funny. The only thing that I didn't like about this film was the music. The music is quite loud, but it fits the film. The ending was a bit too abrupt, but I think that's because I'm not Chinese. Overall, this is a great comedy, and I recommend it to anyone.
