Surprise surprise
24 February 2008 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I watched this movie as a part of the "Focus Asia Nights" Film festival weekend in Stuttgart in autumn 2007. And although you kinda can tell that this will be over the top (Horror/comedy), I never felt that it hit the right notes. Not that it was completely bad (turkey), but it just missed out on a few things ... not to mention the craziest plot changes and "surprises" up til the end.

On the other side, it had some great (funny) ideas, that worked. Sometimes as a running gag, sometimes just one good laugh or action scene. But while the movie couldn't decide which direction it'll take (action, Horror, Comedy), you might get bored a little (especially if you get to see things that happened twice)! The plot is so crazy that it really wouldn't be a spoiler to say anything about it (it's not about the plot anyway), but I'll leave you with a word of advice: Don't watch the movie, if you're not prepared for something completely "different"
