Watched it this afternoon and it was a LOT better than I anticipated. It wasn't incredibly deep or anything, just a great laugh with a decent story line!

Quest
Got mentally collapsed on hearing 'Master Wugui.' Am I seeing another Chinese word dive into the pool of English vocabulary?

I think Master "sheefoo" has a better chance if not already.

Is there a Chinese version of this movie - voice in Chinese AND Chinese subtitles? I'd prefer to watch it at my keyboard.

I found it slightly amusing that they were essentiall calling him Master Master.

It's like ATM Machine and PIN number :D

There's certainly a dubbed version playing in Chinese cinemas. Whether it's available online or not I don't know.

Ok, that's what I was wondering. Maybe imron can find the Chinese voice-and-caption version online, or we have to wait for the captioned DVD to come out. We deaf Chinese learners need captions, you know....

The version imron linked to actually does have Chinese subtitles, but they are hard to read. You might want to try downloading a higher-resolution version, or indeed waiting for the DVD. If you even need to wait, I would imagine that in China they should be available already?

There are a couple of different versions of the subtitles - the one on the Youku link isn't the one we had at the cinema. Not sure what the Youku ones are like, but the cinema ones (where the panda is 阿宝, not whatever he is on Youku) are decent.

Just have a quick look then, but it seems everywhere I looked online all has the same English dub with Chinese subtitles.

Decent Chinese captions (subtitles) and Chinese sound track are what I am looking for. Maybe I should wait for the DVD? Does the DVD come out the same time as the movie in China? In the US we have to wait a few months after the movie release. Meaning a lot of deaf people in the US have to wait a few months then buy the DVD with captions. Movie theaters in the US generally do not have captions.

Usually the DVD comes out before the movie :mrgreen:

Which flash ripper rips from youku? Not really interested in cartoon pandas, but been meaning to ask and since we are directed there once again . . . Viewing source doesn't give a flv or swf

i saw this movie a week ago while in china. i thought it was brilliant. wonderful job by dreamworks. my girlfriend (chinese) kept telling me about it the whole time i was there until i finally saw it. she obviously loved it too. she did mention that a few chinese protested about the fact many were represented as pigs. though i didn't really get that considering there were rabbits and other animals too..

I did not even notice that the Chinese people were being portrayed as pigs until my girlfriend mentioned it to me. I don't take it so offensively but obviously some people do.

Because the panda, tiger, snake, crane, ducks etc weren't Chinese? I think some people are just reading too much into it.

I wasn't particularly impressed by this. The rendering was great and, as far as cartoons go, it was OK, but I found the story and the characters shallow, and basically a rehashing of all the stereotypical Karate-Kid ripoffs of the 80s and 90s. I didn't particularly care about the story or the characters.

This is a problem I have with most of Dreamworks movies (other than the wonderful Shrek series and the movies made by Aardman, like Chicken Run).

I guess I'm spoiled by Pixar movies, which speak to my soul, and which I love to bits and pieces.
