An unusual and hard to define chinese drama-comedy of some sorts from
the interesting director Huang Bo. Sometimes a bit
slow and maybe a bit too arty too, but also a quite unusual apocalyptic
survival saga. About what happens to the employees
of a company on a teambuilding trip at sea when a meteorite hits earth.
In the main role we see the director Huang Bo as office
worker Ma Jin, a man who dreams about winning the lottery and who's
in love with his beautiful colleague Shan Shan (Shu Qi).
Time for the annual company teambuilding trip, and this
time a seacruise in an amphibian bus-boat driven by their guide Dicky,
played by the great Wang Baoqiang (or annoying if you don't like his
antics) an actor appearing in many a Chinese film.
Just when Ma Jin understands that he actually has won the first prize
in the Lottery, 60 million yuan, and that he's a rich man
(and now has got the means to court Shanshan, probably) just then ....
they are suddenly going straight into a tsunami caused
by a meteorite hitting earth. But, somehow they survive the giant wave
and find themselves swept onto a mysterious island
Will they survive and who will become their leader ?
Will they be resqued and will Ma Jin be able to present his ticket within
after the draw and to retrieve his money? And, how about a possible
romance with Shanshan ?
The film is presented in anamorphic widescreen and with a mandarin audio
DD EX or DTS-ES with english subtitles, a trailer as extra
