Film Review:

This film’s counter attack is not to beat chicken blood or boil chicken soup. The movie has a very delicate and persuasive depiction of Ne zha’s heart journey. Moreover, the screenwriter cleverly takes Ao Bing as Ne zha’s contrast, highlighting that it’s the subject of human being and devil that is independent choice, rather than destiny. (Litchi entertainment review)

The Wandering Earth《流浪地球》

Film Review:

Having raked in over $600m at the box office, The Wandering Earth is yet another massive blockbuster from China. However, like so many enormous Chinese blockbusters in recent years, it’s all style and no substance, with excessive emphasis on special effects and incoherent fantasy that really impedes any attempts to craft a more elegant or majestic space opera.

Film Review:

This movie can be called the epic movie of Marvel movie universe. The information content of several big plays is full and the rhythm is very fast. Whether it’s a huge action scene, a dazzling special effect scene, or a very compact plot development, it constantly stimulates the audience’s heart, bombards the whole range of information, and is full of energy. The Russell brothers, the director, also focused on the literary drama, so that they could say goodbye to the audience affectionately, even tragically. For example, the relationship between “Iron Man” and his daughter as well as “little pepper” shows the emotional and human side of superheroes. (Guangzhou Daily )

The co-pilot was sucked halfway out of the cockpit and passengers started losing consciousness due to low pressure.

Film Review:

The Captain” focuses more on the crew’s spiritual character and professional integrity in the face of crisis, which is a disaster film with Chinese characteristics. The film answers the hero from different perspectives. What the captain said at the end of the film, awe of life, awe of duty, awe of rules, let the theme of the film sublimate. The heroic captain Liu Chuanjian’s mind of “lifting heavy as light” is also shown in the film. The film also shows the efforts made by relevant departments such as the tower, air traffic control bureau and the military, which has played a good role in science popularization. (people’s daily)

Film Review:

Crazy alien is a comedy of Ning Hao‘s style, in which science fiction and absurdity coexist. In this movie, he creates absurdity with arrogance and paranoia, and uses it to play a show of respect for all people with arrogance and paranoia, which is intriguing.

The world view of “flying life” is advanced and simple. It encourages people to find the biggest passion in their hearts, and never give up whether they can succeed or not. Han Han, 36, took pictures of the perseverance of the middle-aged people after their disappointment, and the story was very easy, no burden, very rare. (reviewed by Beijing News)

The Bravest《烈火英雄》

  • Release Date: 2019.8.1
  • Box Office: 1 billion 691 million

Brief Introduction:

“The Bravest” tells a story that Chinese firefighters struggle to contain a huge fire after an oil pipeline explodes.

Film Review:

The main narrative line of the film is disaster relief. The plot presents the scene of the fire scene in an all-round and large scale. The director is committed to let the audience participate in the whole disaster relief as a witness rather than a spectator, and really feel the difficulty of the work of the firefighting group. Even if there are a large number of disaster relief scenes with strong sense of oppression, the film does not make people feel tired in the visual sense. The real, sensitive and tender literary drama just neutralizes the sensory stimulation brought by the fire scene to the audience.

Film Review:

The film truly restores the atmosphere before the college entrance examination, creating a strong sense of reality with a large number of close-up shots, follow-up shots, hand-held mirror shaking and fragment editing. Under the tense narrative rhythm, the film tries to tell a good story, and at the same time, it tries to arouse the audience’s attention and Thinking: why does this happen and how to avoid repeating it? It is the positive intervention in real life that makes the film go out of the small pattern of “young people don’t know the taste of sorrow, and they are forced to say sorrow for new words”, which makes the youth theme film have a certain amount of realistic care

Hobbs and Shaw《速度与激情:特别行动》

  • Box Office: 1 billion 430 million

Brief Introduction:

Lawman Luke Hobbs (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and outcast Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) form an unlikely alliance when a cyber-genetically enhanced villain threatens the future of humanity.

Hobbs and Shaw” is dazzling with a large number of stunt scenes breaking through the limit. The movie seems to be a real cartoon movie which is reconstructed after being deconstructed. The noise, destruction, and special effects that the film continues to present seem out of the director’s control – unfortunately, that’s what Fast and Furious series is all about.
