    Ok, the movie is good, have some good effects, but no is the better japan movie, some moments are boring and stupid, the characters are regular, the story is good, but this movie is really strange for me.

    A strange film, I think it would be more appreciated in China than elsewhere, but it was curiously fascinating. The acting isn't too bad. Ultimately, it didn't quite work.

    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.

    The family film Made in China, was acceptable , good for the script, funny and dramatic at the same time , but think it is the ET Chinese, are wrong , because it 's been a bit boring , but do not discount the imagination of a child , as they had not even Steven Spielberg. but that's what they say.

    "E.T."-inspired comic fantasy about a poor boy adopting a cute alien catches the eye but not fully the heart with its undernourished father-son dynamics, critter hijinks and smattering of social commentary.
  2. A hyperactive, wishful-thinking special effects fantasy suitable for family outings.

    The overall feel is Hong Kong to the core…which means CJ7, like the first 25 minutes or so of "Shaolin Soccer," doesn't make many allowances to Western sensibilities.
