Sabrina T (mx) wrote: East Asian films (the drama ones) just don't got a lot of dialogue in them. For some, this may bore them. To tell you the truth, I get bored myself sometimes, but I could definitely watch through it if it were worth it.This one is. Simple story of 2 boys sharing the same bicycle, in an unconventional way really. But, damn it, I got hooked to it emotionally. That last scene, even if I sped it up a bit (which I usually do, if I find the pace too slow, or I'm pressed for time.) really really got me depressed! gaah! I pitied guei too much, I wanted to punch him myself and scream at him to stop being a pushover! but he has his naive country boy charms.

Robert F (us) wrote: I have been wanting to see this for some time. Today I happened to be flipping past IFC and it had just started, True story.Jeremy Irons is a great actor.Gong Li is a great actress.Plain and simple.This movie, was interesting. There is a lot going on here, and if you don't pay attention you may miss something.The story is centralized around Irons character, but there seems to be like 5 different stories unfolding.Iron's narration is great.Gong Li's character is compelling, especially when she is watching the old movie in the bar, and she is acting it out.Maggie Cheung has been in some great movies, and I really liked her character in this.I like how the story takes place during the transfer of control of Hong Kong. It sets the theme for the stories.Part of the movie is shot like the documentary Irons is creating, so you have the bouncy camera movement.One of the most interesting things about this movie is the soundtrack.It was really really good, and mixed in with a heart beat every so often.Overall I think this was a little tough to follow, and see where it is going, but still very good nevertheless.

Whit w (it) wrote: The dated appearance of "Strange Invaders" was what stood out about it the most. It looks like an '80s movie filtered through a nostalgic 1950's lens. It was actually tough to watch because it looked so cheap. That cheap look, along with the off-putting performance (if you want to call it that) from leading-man Paul LeMat were enough to make me reach for the remote to press the "Eject" button. But just about the time that I was about to give up, there's a tremendous old school practical effect where a man rips off his face to reveal a classic grey alien. Then, the always appealingly cute Nancy Allen steps in to become a main character and makes me mostly forget that Paul LeMat is around. I can hardly recall the story but it was quirky and ended up being weird enough to make me leave the Eject button alone. Oh, and after what seemed to me to be an exceedingly dark start and middle of the movie, the ending was off-the-wall happy. I remember shaking my head trying to understand what I just watched, which always makes me feel obligated to rate a movie as "Good".

Richard D (ag) wrote: I was expecting to watch Krampus, but ended up being this film. There are 4 stories going on here and 1 of them has a really great twist at the end. One of them deals with Santa directly and the other three are similar yet different enough. They all have their ups and downs but overall it surprised me in a good way. The effects are a lot higher than one would expect from something like this.
Oh Good G (fr) wrote: I can't believe someone paid money to make this atrocity. The acting was dreadful, and the storyline was equally ridiculous. It did have some cringe inducing moments, and it did manage to incorporate pretty much every orifice of the body in terms excreting bodily fluids, but it's a terrible attempt at horror. However, if you have a sense of humor and can enjoy it for the garbage it is...it's actually unintentionally hysterical. In all honesty, the second star was given because it was hilariously bad.
