This Taiwanese movie is really not a bad. Nice job.
23 September 2013 | by marksrtromSee all my reviews

Sorry, if something is unclear - was translated from 9oo9le. It's look's like their Taiwanese girls really beautiful , come across from time to time ... (although I do not know exactly how to say secretly - it will be wrong, the Chinese woman either, but the ( native ) citizen of Taiwan - 100% correct ) so here . Full length movie 2 hours and 37 minutes . But for this film - it's not a problem when viewing the time is not going slowly. The plot is unusual and that he takes the audience , as for me . Such a cool laptop, or is it even a mega compact KDP , and no advertising . ! ? ... Here 's the difference between this and the Taiwan Hollywood movies! Very interesting and advanced Kintz they did it . Taiwanese is "beauties" . It is true there - not without flaws in the production of , and sometimes , not without kinks in the action movie , moments too implausible . But now , it almost does not spoil . Certainly more than an amateur, as here smacks their mentality. I liked that in this work there is a positive sense of humor, which does not spoil the plot of the film and its severity . Is not this skill. And then, as the operator gave a lot of panoramas and environments , the one still interesting country. Before watching this movie , I was confused and thought its duration - and is it worth it . Now I know what the cost. Not to say that the film is a mega , but very personal . The camera work is gorgeous - I liked it. Watchable . I advise you if there is so much time to view the whole .
