James H (es) wrote: It was better than the scathingly bad reviews I have read on it, but it still isn'y good. The main thing that is bad about it is the bad acting. it is very distracting from the film. Also, the dialogue is laughably bad at times. But, the basic story isn't too bad. The critter, El Chupacabra, looks decent considering the budget.
Casen S (kr) wrote: A well made, slightly over-done action movie. This movie is creative and, at the least, very entertaining. It is fit with suspense, drama, and some very intense action sequences. Andy Lau is just a great actor, and plays his character very well. Overall, an enjoyable movie-watching experience.
Peyton C (nl) wrote: As a whole, I think this is on par with John Hughes' teen films. The laughs are constant and it's a believable friendship between all the characters. I especially love Eugene Levy and Seann William Scott's performances.

Tibor B (nl) wrote: Wonderful, dare I say it one of Kaurismaki's more emotional films?! There is definitely a sense of Kaurismaki maturing in these more recent films, with many of his trademark visuals, themes and jokes integrated subtly into the plot. It's also very uplifting, despite the fact that for the vast majority of the movie it doesn't seem like things could get any worse for the couple (and the dog). It probably helps to be familiar with the style and pace of his movies, but I'd still say this is one of the most accessible examples of his work. Oh, and RIP Matti Pellonpaa his presence is missed...
Davis B (au) wrote: The people who make a difference in this world are nothing more than people who listen to their conscience. This is a profound idea found in a movie that made those people who listened to their conscience the focal point of the movie. That movie is Water, written and directed by Deepa Mehta. While filming, Mehta received many death threats for her work on this controversial film focused on the concepts of misogyny and ostracism of female widows in India. Set in 1938 India under British rule, it begins with young seven year old Chuyia (Sarala Kariyawasam) being awoken and told by her father that her arranged husband has just died, making her a widow. She is a victim of the previously common practice of child marriage. Then she is whisked off to an ashram in rural Varanasi where many other widows also live. Widows in the Hindu India have a lower position in society. The fourteen widows in the ashram are expected to live out the rest of their lives in poverty, hardship, and worshiping of Gods. They live in a tiny two-floor house, living there to repent bad karma and to relieve their families of financial and emotional hardships. The only reason why I didn't give the movie a 10/10 is because of the multiple scenes that dragged on for a little bit too long and it was hard for me to understand some parts. For example, it was hard to understand why she demanded the boat to turn around and why she drowned herself in the river was unclear to me because I couldn't keep track of the men outside of the ashram, besides Narayan, that later turned out to be her clients. Overall, this movie has a beautiful and moving plot that uncovers many truths in the Hindu society for Indian women. I had known that in the Hindu religion, women that have husbands passed away, were burned on occasion, but I would have never known about the mental and emotional pain felt by these excluded women. For example, Narayan's mother's reaction to his announcement of them getting married, the rude street vendor who wanted to get rid of Chuyia, Madhumati who locks Kalyani away in a room so that she can't get remarried, and the deplorable men who exploited Kalyani and Chuyia. With Deepa Mehta's film, all these hardships have been intelligently brought to life for the thirty-four million widows in India since 2001 that are still living under social, economic, and cultural impoverishment engraved upon them two-thousand years ago by the Sacred Texts of Manu. She highlights characters Narayan, Kalyani, Shakuntala, and Chuyia in the film as people who speak out about these rules that bound widows. This is what makes them different from other people, they act on their consciousness.
