I liked this Chinese remake much more than the original, mostly because they filmed recognizable locations in Beijing. And it’s extra fun to decipher a movie in your favorite foreign language. (Plus, let’s face it: this one doesn’t feature the repugnant Mel Gibson.)  I also thought it was neat that they inserted a characteristically Chinese plot twist concerning filial piety: the grandpa character, entirely missing from the American original, ends up being key to the whole thing.  This is Watchable plus.
