Originally Wu Jing, one of the protagonist, only agreed to show up in one scene, but since he was the only big star of the film, the director Frant changed the script and kept putting him in more and more scenes. One day of shooting became weeks, then months. Wu jing's pay for each movie is around 10 million us dollars. After weeks of shooting, the director asked him that, since the movie was over-budget, maybe he didn't mind not getting paid. Wu jing loved the director and the film so much, not only that he agreed not getting paid, he invested his own money of about 9 million us dollars in it. Many people thought Wu Jing was conned by the director at that time. In fact, without Wu's name, the movie wouldn't have been sold to so many theaters at all. If director Frant is the father of the film, Wu Jing is like its guardian angel. This kind of blessing rarely happened in Chinese film industry. See more »
The travel time from China to Sulawesi appears to be almost non-existent, which would be quite an achievement for a distance of 1000+ miles... in a truck... on ice. See more »
1. Background settings have great imagination. Very romantic in some way. (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
2. Visual effects is wonderful (and made by Chinese, not easy) (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
3. Plot not good. The director didn't handle to tell the story well. Rhythm is weird. Plot is not mind-catching. (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
4. Ideas are too narrow. The main roles take family relation more seriously than human survival. And they didn't respect rules. (⭐⭐⭐)
5. Emotional expressions not natural. Lines are awkward. Too much 'tear points' but got little touching. (⭐⭐⭐⭐)
