How could it be possible......?!
14 October 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a bunch of Chinese thieves going abroad to France did a heist? Are you serious? How the Chinese movie makers would have dreamed up with such stupid and pretentious scenarios? Again, I can not but have to point out that the Chinese people nowadays are just so obsessed to everything NOT Chinese but WESTERN COUNTRIES in the WESTERN WORLD. Since when the Chinese started to drink red wine or white wine as their daily common drinks instead of oolong or green tea? Since when your wedding ceremonies got to be held in a foreign country or on a popular foreign island and, well, your bride-to-be or wife-to-be would consider you a loser or don't-love-her-enough if you don't marry her in a western church in an E.U. country? Why your bride's wedding gown must be in white, why her garland in her hands must be red, yellow or pink roses, the music got to be that specific segment from a western opera? Why the Chinese honeymooners got to go abroad so the newly wedded couple would not feel ashamed to enjoy if their new marriages starting in their own country?

This pretentious film fell into the similar pretentiousness with no- limit budget, they moved their background localities scenes to France. Don't you guys know that a bunch of Chinese who would stand out like sore thumbs in Europe even they were just tourists albeit a bunch of Chinese YO-YOs committing a heist, a serious crime?

Since the budget was unlimited, so they signed up a bunch of the French actors playing detective or whoever they might have to be, making them chase after those Chinese who without any logistic difficulties, equipped with high tech devices, exotic cars and motorcycles....whatever they could throw into the scenes.

Based upon what I have mentioned above at the outset, Chinese thieves, like most of the Chinese who are getting married, are not interested in stealing from any Chinese city; they are not interested to rob a bank in China, or try to do a heist on their Chinese national museum, instead, they move abroad, to play cat-and-mouse game with the French cops. Yeah, right. The stupidity simply couldn't stop right here.

When the rich Chinese women started buying COACH purses, it soon became a national MUST-HAVE to most of the other Chinese women, maid servant, waitresses, street peddlers, teachers, cleaning women....every woman in China wanted to own a COACH purse or bag, and sooner than later, no rich Chinese woman would dare to shoulder a COACH bag around, they moved up to HERMES; then the COACH brand was totally ruined in China, even the women in lower class don't want it no more.

I have to warn the Chinese movie makers not to ridicule yourselves putting a bunch of the Chinese actors/characters to do anything in foreign countries, legal or illegal, romantic or whatever, just don't do it with a foreign background, because it'd just look false, phony and pretentious. "Let Caesar has what belongs to him and let the Romans have theirs", so better stay in China and likewise, do the crimes in China. The E.U. countries already got their own immigrants and refugees problems, they don't want a bunch of Chinese criminals to further mess up their infrastructure or their livelihood.

What happens in China, stay in China; better spending your easily earned Renminbi in China, making your movies in China; there's absolutely nothing wrong to be a Chinese or drinking tea instead of red wine. Homeless Americans all speaking American English, your kids don't have to register into the international schools in China to learn English.
