So like, yeah this movie sucks because(click to show spoiler):
[spoiler]Cloud dies and chu chu (cho cho in cantonese lol) dies LIKE OMG THE PEOPLE THAT MATTERS DIE. Oh and that canon guy dies too but thats a given, lol. Wheres mah “moving cloud palms” move too D: At least theres gate of babylon amirite fate/stay fans? wwwww[/spoiler]
Seriously though, it seems to me that movies these days are entirely aimed towards action and special effects, and almost completely negating plot/storyline. I suppose its easier to sell with flashy action flying across the screen, as opposed to having long dialogs which are easy to bore the viewers if not done well.
Either way, i got to watch this movie for free thanks to Comic Fiesta folks, so i guess cant really complaint much about it ^^;
And with Comic Fiesta happening over THIS weekend with about less than 3 days to go, heres a whole bunch of information and updates by the Comic Fiesta committee:
