Some weeks ago when I first saw the movie posters, it's obvious they are trying to infuse a sense of Chinese aesthetics into the work, and I had high expectation from them. But frankly, I am a bit disappointed when I saw the clips, which suggested that the actual movie is just like a regular one. I'm not saying the movie is bad, but it doesn't seems like there's any breakthrough. I could be wrong, as it was just some short clips that we saw. I hope I am wrong.
If you could read Chinese , here's an recent interview with Raman on similar topics.
