The movie is not simple one dimensional slasher/gore/scary movie, it has depth but i'm leaving that to the audience.

Eric R (jp) wrote: Two unemployed slacker teenagers have no real motivation or future prospects at all. They hang out in their sheltered town in China where they spend their days aimlessly wondering about their uncertain future ahead. The most appealing aspect of Zhang Ke Jia's film is it's observation of Chinese culture and the western world's influence on this ancient civilization. The two slackers minds are full of pop music and western culture dreams completely without focus on their past or future. At times the film feels very hypnotic as these two characters feel very out of place and almost alone in a weird place, which happens to be the place they presumably have lived their entire lives creating a very real sense of alienation. The film makes this connection between a countries need to industrialize and grow in this ever changing global landscape while still holding on to tradition and purpose which Zhang Ke Jia seems to believe comes from one's past. I don't think the film is a detriment to Western Culture, not at all, but rather an examination on how these various elements can conflict in China, as it heads towards a new age of Industrialization. The whole film is very subtle, as viewer is asked to merely observe these characters. The camera-work is also very observational in it's approach, often scanning various room and/or showing smaller details of a space. This is another great observational film by Zhang Ke Jia who clearly has a lot of things to say about the social, political and economical ever-changing conditions in China.

Kristal C (fr) wrote: Pretty cool considering when it was produced but a bit like an educational film about a sea voyage. I didn't really get the feel of what it would be like to be on that boat - "Blue Water, White Death" does that so much better.
Andrew I (au) wrote: Apart from a few tiny smirks, there's little to recommend this. It's dated in the extreme and is barely a notch above a bad Three Stooges film. Even though it's meant to be a farce of some sort, the plot is tiresome and ludicrous with the luggage salesman especially irritating. 5.5/10
