I saw this in December in a limited LA release.

Looks great, production design and lighting are amazing -- but the D.I. is rather artifacty and the CGI work very cartoonish at times, and the story itself is all over the map.

oh wow, was it a pre release or was the movie allready finished at that time ? i mean effects wise and everything ?
the chances that it gets a cinema release in europe are pretty small i think :/

i can imagine that the catoonish style was on purpose, asian cinema often uses these very surreal moments. crouching tiger hidden dragon and hero had them too, but i like this different view on things.

I don't mind the hyper-stylized storybook look -- one of my favorite HK films is "The Bride with White Hair" -- it's just that the CGI action at times bordered on a Tex Avery ridiculousness, much more so than "Hero", "Crouching Tiger", "House of Flying Daggers", etc.

im excited to see that peter pau shot it, the bamboo fighting sequence in crouching tiger is one of my all time favourite movie scenes, and my favourite composer klaus badelt made the score :)
