wow, just wondering if anyone else has seen this movie, friend brought it back from Thailand for me (I think it's probably a bootleg) but he was raving about it.
what a strange film, firstly I am not sure I understood it all got the fastest English subs I have ever seen!
it's got the "whacky" comic character's that Chinese films seem to love so much and the rest of the world hates, but I really really enjoyed it.
it makes little sense but it's Tomb Raiding sections, play like the cut scenes from video game it's all quite beautiful to look at in a crumbing old ruin kinda way. undead Japanese soldiers, samurai style zombies, mystic compass, stylised fights and Chinese legends make for a fun 2 hours.
I have no idea if it has a "outside" china release date, but it's a very Hollywood styled film and I thing given a good dud track would do ok, or at least slow the subtitles down a bit.
reminded me of some of the great 80's Chinese movies like Xu warriors, Mr vampire and a Chinese ghost story!
