Several Extremely Colorful Pics from the Animated Sequel to CJ7

10 Comments


Although I was not very impressed by the international trailer for Stephen Chow’s hit science fiction comedy “CJ7″, the strangely effective family-friendly feature turned out to be one of my absolute favorite films from 2008. The film — a quaint, inoffensive tale about a little boy and his extraterrestrial canine companion — has a way of worming its way into your heart, where it gently tugs at the emotional strings nestled within. Not surprisingly, Chow is producing the upcoming animated sequel “CJ7 2″, a film that continues the adventures of this unlikely trio of friends. Currently, the film is scheduled to hit theaters in mainland China on July 6th. Unfortunately, the rest of us are doomed to wait patiently for the flick to arrive on DVD later this year.

    The studio that made the live version of CJ7,who also made “Shaolin Soccer” and “Kung Fu Hustle” is an awesome studio. They should have been the ones to make the “Dragonball” movie.

    Nix was it really that good? I've been hesitant to see it for some reason, probably because I thought it'd be cheesy and didn't want to ruin Stephen Chow in my head.

    @Ulik they did have something to do with it. Chow produced that crap. I think it's why the energy effects and such were actually decent while the rest of the movie sucked so badly. COuldn't even get decent fight coreography for the final battle. Really? Twirling while grappling and punching each other in the face was their equivalent to a climactic DB battle. WoW.

    “CJ7″ is a very good and entertaining film. I have it on blu-ray. Stephen Chow's film making charm never seems to end. “Shaolin Soccer” and “Kung Fu Hustle” are on my All-Time Favorite Films list. This animated sequel to “CJ7″ seems very promising.

    WOW!!! I didn't know that but if they would have been just left alone to direct it and make it, I think it would have been good. I bet you it wasn't his fault. Plus that movie didn't feel or look anything like “Shaolin Soccer” or “Kung Fu Hustle”. Remember FOX craps all over stuff. He probably wanted to go a certain direction and they more than likely shot him down and said no. Look at how Marvel produced movies with Fox but they crapped all over Marvel and the direction I'm sure Marvel originally wanted to go with.

    I just went back to see NIX'S review on Chow producing “Dragonball”. It turns out that he really didn't, he just put his name on it pretty much. Did he even create CJ7? Because supposedly according to him, he only makes and directs movies that are his totall creations. If CJ7 was not created by him,which i doubt it was,then thats a big contradiction.
