Andrew T (us) wrote: After I wrote something about David R. Ellis's Shark Night 3D. I just though Chinese movie director Herman Yau arguably Hong Kong's David R. Ellis. Former stuntman David R. Ellis's Shark Night 3D have some good stunt scenes in Shark Night 3D. Herman Yau's Turning Point and The Legend is Born - Ip man also have some good stunt scenes. David R. Ellis's Shark Night 3D's plot have some outrageous twists and turns. The plots of Herman Yau's Turning Point and The Legend is Born - Ip Man also have some twists and turns. David R. Ellis's Shark Night 3D's plot suffer from SAD (Severe Avatar Disease) which means the horrible plot propelled by stupidity. The plots of Herman Yau's Turning Point and The Legend is Born - Ip Man's plots are not as stupid as Shark Night 3D. However, both plots are jammed packed with senseless melodramtic events. This is quite a typical problem of Hong Kong movies and TV dramas.As I Wikipedia Herman and I found that he directed the 1993 Hong Kong movie, The Untold Story. I cannot believe the director of The Untold Story would add so much senseless melodramas into his movie.One of the laughable part of the plot is the Japanese spies buggering Chan Wah Shun's school of Wing Chun. The only explanation for this probably Chan Wah Shun's school of Wing Chun is sitting on a rich oil well or there are a lot of rare earth underneath or I just cannot understand the motives of the spies.The real draw back of the Ip Man franchise is semi-fictional. Well, this is also quite a problem for Hong Kong movies while filmmakers in Hong Kong do not have the patient or wish to invest time and resources to research a subject deeply and thoroughly before the process of movie making. As long as Hong Kong filmmakers grab a money making movie idea, the would try to making the movie ASAP. All the gaps of the plot are filled with melodramas like love relationships, brotherhood or sisterhood... Wilson Yips Ip Man series fill the gaps with well designed action scenes and I really love it. But Erica Lee, writer of The Legend is Born - Ip man, fill the gaps with senseless melodramas, Japanese conspiracy and comical characters which, in my humble opinion, spoils the whole thing. I do want to kick the screenplay writer, Erica's butt!I wish to say something about Dennis Yu-Hang To. He maybe a green actor. However, I got a movie idea. I wish Steven Soderbergh should choose Dennis to star in Haywire 2. Let's set the Haywire 2 have the setting in Hong Kong. Then we see Gina Carano sends to Hong Kong for an assignment. She fights Dennis, and then, they have sex. How cool is that when the east meeting the west!

Jason M (us) wrote: The first film was one of the best documentaries to come along in years. But this thing is just minute-by-minute douchbaggery, a puff piece cribbed straight from the big auto makers' press releases. Evidently Paine just need to make a little extra dough to pay for his Tesla. Fuck this movie.

Mark K (es) wrote: The humor and pacing of this movie was excellent. I laughed throughout it. But I agree with other reviewers that it ended a little too abruptly. I too would have liked to see better closiure. Still, I would highly recommend this movie.

Telmo J (fr) wrote: Du nanar comme on l'aime malgr un peu d'humour volontaire dment apprci.Vu en version double comme il se doit. Helmut Berger bien loin de Visconti, Telly Savalas bien loin de Kojak et de l'action depuis son bureau, Christopher Mitchum loin de pouvoir jouer comme son pre, Caroline Munro loin de Starcrash et Brigitte Lahaie loin de euh en fait pas loin d'un rle chez Rollin (ciseaux inclus).Ct dat annes 80 sympathique maintenant. Jess Franco qui s'auto-rfrence avec Orloff.Folle et scientifique nazi de rigueur inclus avec quelques plans gore l'ancienne. Sacre distribution !

James H (jp) wrote: Amusing story, well acted by Godfrey Cambridge and Estelle Parsons. Perceptive writing and it has some very funny one liners. A bit dated, but it?s still a fun movie.

Christopher B (nl) wrote: A philosopher monk must spend 3 nights vigil over the body of a witch he possibly murdered. I?ve heard that this is Russia?s first horror film, made in 1967, and boy, is it a doozy. Though most of the characters are fairly unlikable and the story slows down in spots, this is a visually astounding film. And the payoff, with the monk spending the third night with the corpse, has to be seen to be believed. Great stuff.

Michael K (kr) wrote: Cheesy, unrealistic, melodramatic, an absolute waste of my time.One star because I liked the concept of the story.
