The Mermaid - Stephen Chow's fish out of water story

Directed by Stephen Chow (Kung-Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer, Journey to the West)

Stars Deng Chao, Show Luo, Zhang Yuqi, and Lin Yun.

This movie broke a bunch of box office records in China, but it’s getting dumped into theaters here in the west by Sony with little to no marketing.

It’s The Little Mermaid, if the mermaid was an assassin sent to kill a rich industrialist. Plus Chow’s slapstick humor.

I saw this posted on Reddit, and heard mixed things, but it made me finally get to watching God of Cookery, so that’s cool.

And it was pretty good! Not as funny as Kung Fu Hustle or Shaolin Soccer, but definitely Chow.
