Jimmy G (kr) wrote: Really good movie. John Malkovich great as always. Good story to it I really liked it.
Albert C (jp) wrote: I agree with other reviews,this is not one of John Sayles best. But, again as others have said, Sayles on a bad day is still better than most. This political satire is convoluted, but still makes pretty biting observations on the business of getting elected. Good cast. Too bad they have so many details to shuffle around. Also may be hard for people who don't live in the Southern half of the U.S. to understand all the dynamics of the situations being presented. Worth viewing but expect to get a little confused.

Lee B (de) wrote: I am as big a fan as any of Shaw Brothers movies. Well, I guess it was their early stuff, I wonder if those were the glory days or if this movie was just an anomaly. Because this was some weird stuff, not in a good way. It was like 70s psychedelia somehow seeped into the water but it was a bastard batch. And why the choice of studio for some scenes when some flashbacks were in the street?I am as big a fan as any of the Five Deadly Venoms, so to see them as the dead wrongfully living in hell seems like a good idea. But when it comes after a strange heaven set up and bad fight choreography involving gold hoola-hoops, then each back story being silly and their fights being contained by bad hell set pieces was sad. Kung-Fu Movies should have stayed in the grimey era. Even when Jackie Chan was making Drunken Master 1 through 2, his seemed grimey and although Tsui Hark?s Wong Fei-hung had polish, it was inspired of the era.

Second story feels much shorter than the others, but I didn't mind since that story interested me the least. Loved the third story, it was really funny.
