Stephen Chow's Mermaid

I just saw this in the theater and I've got to say this was Stephen Chow's best film since Kung Fu Hustle. Funny and emotional! Sort of like a cross between The Cove and Splash. Excellent filmmaking, great acting, cool soundtrack, amazing visuals and two gorgeous lead actresses - what more could one ask for?

I saw it in 2D as well - I didnt want to see it in 3D.

Definitely a 4.5 out of 5!!



Here's my updated Stephen Chow film ratings now:

Mermaid: A
Journey to the West: C-
CJ7: B-
Kung Fu Hustle: A
Shaolin Soccer: A-
God of Cookery: B+
Forbidden City Cop: B+
From Beijing With Love: A+
60 Million Dollar Man: C+
Love on Delivery: B
Chinese Odyssey: B-
Flirting Scholar: B
Fight Back to School: B
Royal Tramp: C+

This looks slated to turn up here in the U.S. starting on February 19th...a select group of AMC theaters screen Asia-Pacific offerings...and THE MERMAID is on the list.

I saw the trailer when I watched Ip Man 3. Looks really funny.

Re: Stephen Chow's Mermaid

Finally got a chance to watch this. I give it an A-. Typical Chow flick; not saying that's bad. That's what I expected and got.

The BD has been out for quite some time now.
