Adler M (us) wrote: A lot of people like to pan this movie, but I thought it was quite enjoyable and a great film, but only for video game enthusiasts. The acting was good, especially from Stephen Mendel, who plays the trigger, or more explosive, happy General Dark Onward, who is over the top fun always losing limbs. Most of the jokes are hilarious, but some fall flat. For example, 'Howard Scott Warshaw made Yars' Revenge, but he also made E.T.! Its like giving someone a present, but then s****ing on their doorstep at the same time. Like Santa Claus with diarrhea.' Overall, if you are a fan of the Nerd or video games in general, its worth your time.

Farah R (fr) wrote: A well written and well acted drama. Both Firth and Kidman gave masterful performances. However, the entire plot line builds towards revenge and as it reaches its climax, forgiveness is concluded. A very unsatisfactory way to end a movie.

Jesse O (br) wrote: Really good movie, though one that's more on the quieter side, but it's a lovely little movie nonetheless. I think part of the movie's charm is really how simple it is and how that simplicity is used to create a compelling story with a character who's torn between two lifestyles. The cast feels completely natural as well, as if they were a real family. Granted living in a steppe for a month prior to filming will do that to you, but the movie felt like it just captured a slice in the life of this family and doesn't feel like you're watching a movie at all. Apparently the Kazakhstan government thought that this movie was even more degrading than Borat. Of course they are wrong about this. I don't think the movie is out to represent how all Kazakh people live in "poor" conditions. On top of that, the family in the movie is presented as hard-working and loving (with the exception of Asa and Ondas's dislike of each other), yet this representation is more degrading than Borat? If anything it tries its hardest to shed that image. So kudos to this movie for having respect for its story and its characters. I wouldn't recommend this movie to everybody, seeing as Transformers fans will be bored to tears, but I think it's worth seeing.

Ching Y (ru) wrote: Best Chow's movie. Despite not having cg effect like Shaolin Soccer or Kung fu Hustle, it has brilliant cantonese jokes, garfield and ''Super (Wind) Flame Wheel'' to make up for it.

Matthew N (ag) wrote: The film should be credited for giving an accurate trio of amateurs an attempt to pull off a heist. Anna Karina certainly gives a fantastic performance of a simple minded girl trying to be more than what she is. France is not shown as some glamorous vogue type of locale but like any other place with people looking out for their own pot of gold. Some of the weakest links were with this film is that the characters keep farting around until they actually do something regarding to the heist and what the narration talks of is rather pointless or the audience can ascertain for themselves. the death scene was not gripping or a tragedy but hysterical

Art S (kr) wrote: My, there seem to be a lot of shots of horses and references to horses (even one early line, "we could have the horses stabled in your bedroom, if you like" or something like that, which is shocking taken out of context, as it is here) in von Sternberg's biopic about Catherine the Great (really, even at the end, Marlene Dietrich is on the throne with her arm around a horse who is nuzzling her). But of course von Sternberg couldn't have been fooling with the Hays Office censors, could he? The rest of the movie simply focuses on how Catherine uses her sexual resources to get the army to help her overthrow her imbecilic husband, Peter the III. So, in 1934, the censors weren't paying much attention. And von Sternberg shoots Dietrich through gauze, on beds, amongst crazy statuary, and in front of mock Russian icons, with characters who don't care that they have heavy American accents, with the 1812 overture playing during the 1750s, and just makes a crazy baroque thing.
