(br) wrote: Fairly entertaining. Nice cast.
(kr) wrote: The two leads give terrific understated performances of parents searching for their missing children in London after the terrorist attack of 2005. The film leads you into wondering whether they are victims, the perpetuators or in fact just out of town. The real plot line is the awkward relationship between the leads and how this develops. Recommended.

(gb) wrote: I wanted this movie to be so much better. The idea, characters and acting are all good, if not great. It's the story. Perhaps there is a lot more to this movie that hit the cutting room floor. Lot's of holes and a weak build up to what could have been a decent ending. Whoever wrote this didn't create any attachment to these characters, and is held up only by the actors doing the best with a weak story.

(jp) wrote: So sweet & fun! Sure, Martin Short isn't an Oscar nominated actor, but he's endearing. I LOVE NICK NOLTE.
(gb) wrote: Early stuff from Woo, already showing the themes common in his future films, friendship and loyalty. Five Venoms star Wei Bai (the snake) plays the main lead while Damian Lau plays a cool drinking swordsman.The second half stretches a bit too much, and the fights seems to get too redundant. Still, a very decent option for any HK aficionado.

(es) wrote: This movie was very weird and strange and in Chinese, but it was pretty good none the less. It was over the top and had some humor and some kung fu. I'm not a huge fan of the kung fu genre, but it was pretty awesome but will seem too weird for most. The director did a nice job behind the camera and it was entertaining to say the least!
(jp) wrote: Just awful people. You're kind of hoping this is the Krampus movie for the first half, but nothing gets killed here, except the viewer's will to live.
