Jade Warrior is a wuxia movie shot in Finland, China and Estonia. In China, it will be shown in 80 cities.

What strikes me as odd are the estimates for box office sales in China. According to Helsingin Sanomat, the movie will probably get around 1 million euros in the box office. In my opinion, 1 million is an unbelievably small number considering that it is a country with a population of 1,315,844,000 we are talking about. It is the country where each event or happening or accident, no matter how small, has always an effect on millions of people, at least. 😉

Yesterday, I watched the Mission Impossible III on DVD. Tom Cruise does an excellent job as a vulnerable agent – the plot is good. Me and Nina liked it. There are some echoes of the Fight Club’s beginning scene.

The prequels were not that good. Everything I remember from those is the Limp Bizkit version of the theme with the reverb guitar sound. 

IMO, the overall style is influenced by the Matrix trilogy which brought fresh ideas to the action genre. Except that on this movie, there is not that much whispering. 😉

I also like the fact that the physics are getting a more visible role in the movies as the hero is tossed around by an impact wave of an explosion. And he does not use a stunt in that scene.
