Well, it’s that time of the year when the Cineworld Dublin puts on the bulk of its Asian cinema releases. I caught Stephen Chow’s The Mermaid earlier but League of Gods flew by my site surfing and I decided to give it a whirl. CG, Jet Li, Tony Leung being evil, Fan Bingbing being eviler and a race to see how many special effects you can have on screen in a Chinese film. Trailer and review after the break.
Pierce Brosnan playing a bad guy for the first time since, oh I don’t know, The Ghost Writer or Don’t Talk To Strangers? Directed by the director of V for Vendetta? Plus, Milla Jovovich headlining a film that wasn’t directed or produced by her husband (the lady doesn’t need her husband for her roles, I just feel she’s able to tackle something other than Resident Evil all the time)? OK, sign me up. Did it work? Some ways, yes and in others, nooooo.
