(jp) wrote: Seen it twice. Probably the most realistic portrayal of Mainland China you will find on film. No Kung Fu. No resolution. This is the real China.
(fr) wrote: An ambitious movie that works most of the time. Sometimes the look and feel of it is amateurish, or maybe its just dated. I am just noticing there is a dog on the over which i don't remember in the movie. Lots of feel good moments and creative concepts and scenes.

(fr) wrote: Not a very good modern re-telling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic. Frederick March, Spencer Tracey and Jack Palance have nothing to worry about.
(gb) wrote: Von Stroheim's final film was never completed, but what we have here is still impressive, cementing his status as one of the great early directors.
(it) wrote: A great Western showing the story of two bounty hunters taking down the criminals.
(au) wrote: The great, excellent, amazing, legendary performances, by Dick Van Dyke and by Julie Andrews, hide the apathetic performances by Matthew Garber and Karen Dotrice. One fact is that in an animation or kids movie, the weak script and the poor approach of the theme are insignificant and only what matters are the sweet songs, the charming story, the creativity and the originality of this movie. Little boring narrative.
