  1. CJ7 is roughly as grating as that “Flubber” remake.
  2. Chow's loyal fans are sure to be disappointed by CJ7, and the film faces one other significant problem in traveling to these shores: Any kid who is the right age to appreciate this pap is going to be too young to read subtitles.
  3. It's awful. Awful. That's all. Keep walking. For the love of all that's holy. Keep. Walking.

    You leave this movie feeling mugged.

    What surprised me most is how well Xu Jiao, a young girl, portrayed her character, a young boy. The film has some good father-and-son relations, but the ultimate problem is the storyline - the pacing is not well done, and the plot itself just seems strange. Full Review »

    I am a fan of Stephen Chow's works. However, CJ7 was highly offensive due to the fact that the space alien "dog" was severely and continuously abused throughout it's short life! This was totally unnecessary and was not the kind of viewing that is "just for fun" viewing! Full Review »
