I can’t imagine and totally beyond comprehension, this messy film with a totally messed up Chinese history, absolutely ridiculous random jump-around mixed eras with extremely mixed costumes and settings…. and so on would have won some awards of some film festivals. All I can guess is these festivals, their judges and their attending audiences were just assembled by a bunch of brain-dead people who didn’t know what was what, what should be and….to sum up: What’s going on? They didn’t even question themselves when they sat in front of the big screen to watch it: WTF!? Because this is exactly what I concluded after I’ve only watched about 4 minutes. This movie is like the American Chinese food, Chop-Suey, mixed all the leftovers of yesterday, the days before yesterday, maybe even over a week’s foods in the refrigerator, threw them altogether into the wok, thus created a so-called messy Chinese dish: Chop means “randomly mixed”, Suey means “leftover tidbits”; this God-awful movie is exactly what I’m trying to tell you, A randomly mixed leftover tidbits. I’m even more surprised that only one reviewer has warned that this movie was complete garbage. Maybe he and me have both watched a different movie? But I doubt it.
