Remember the last time you watched a Chinese movie? Huge spectacles with armies of extras and super cool stunts and gigantic battle scenes but real three-hours-long clunkers, badly filmed and edited, and Overly! Pathetic! Drama! right?
SciFi Spectacle The Wandering Earth promises to be a real crowd pleaser tho. In its homeland it’s been a huge success already. So I remain vaguely hopeful.
PS: Downing it right now. The only available copy on TPB, 720p only and in Mandarin. But subtitled, so expect an O@tM review soonish.
