cantonese... but sg... chinese...

anyway... very disappointed with the casting... hence will most likely wait for reviews to watch...
Piece of SH!t... Cantonese movie when translated to chinese is no fun to watch... what the heck is SG Government thinking?... I Doubt they ever did appreciate the entertainment value of a movie..

I think they meant Mandarin....all dubbed in Mandarin. Most, if not all Hong Kong based production movies are all spoken in their native language, Cantonese.

So when u have something dub over, it really sound stupid. I love Cantonese myself too. Agree with RossChang..... :thumbsup:

Well, if the cinema here play the movie in its native cantonese language, I think up to half of the Chinese population in Singapore will not be able to enjoy the movie, as they are busy reading the subtitles. I'm one of those that does not speak cantonese, and I would prefer to watch Hong Kong movies dubbed in mandarin.

Well, I understand how you feel but I think if you understand cantonese and watch a movied dubbed in mandarin..it's really frustrating..because all the interesting dialogue which was originally in cantonese loses its meaning in mandarin. watching stephen chow movie in mandarin is never as funny as it is in cantonese.
but for me i think i prefer to watch movies in their original language even though i dun understand a word of french/italian/brazilian etc...
