An infectious live action comic book with the narrative drive of an eight-year old boy on a sugar rush. Highly recommended for those with a "pleasure positive" approach to film consumption.
The plot synopsis above was taken verbatim from my review of this film over at diedangerdiediekill.blogspot.com/2008/05/thai-style-kaiju-films-of-sompote-sands_06.html
I enjoyed this as a showcase for a lot of insanely talented Asian actors. Constance Wu was every bit as good as she is in Fresh Off The Boat while playing a less frightening character. Felt very let down by the by-the-numbers romcom conclusion. Will do wonders for Singapore’s tourist industry, though I must point out that no one in this movie gets arrested for chewing gum.
