total waste
20 July 2003 | by lionel2See all my reviews

this movie is of very bad quality. there is no script ( director zhang yuan confessed that there was no script when he started filming ). the style is pretencious ( virtually every spoken line has the 'f**k' word ). this is not a true to life portrait of urban subculture. the director just uses this trick to get some shock value out of it, and to fool the western audience. this really sickens me.

i rate this movie 1 of 10, avoid.
