  1. I think Fantasy films are ruining Chinese cinema. Most big name directors are all stuck on doing these types of films. That being said I think Andrew Lau is the exception. These types of films were his bread and butter back in the late 90’s. He pretty much started the CGI fantasy film genre in china with Storm Riders, A Man Called Hero, The Duel etc. I enjoyed all of those at the time so I am always down when he does something like this. I just hope something new can come out of Hong Kong/China that is worth watching. Hopefully Tsui Hark can get to working on his newest non Fantasy film.
