I always wondered what Blood Simple would look like as a shrill-pitched, flamboyant, bloated farce. Did I say always? Sorry, I meant never. I guess America no longer has the monopoly on unnecessary remakes.

Sense of humour taken from Stephen Chow kung-fu mythical nonsense comedies of the early 90's, visual flair taken from Wong Kar Wai's Ashes of Time and script originally written by Coen bros. Result? A mess that is neither funny of interesting nor good. Production values are good, but fuck, I'm disappointed with you, Yimou...

Blood Simple remade as a slapstick set in period China doesn't even SOUND like a good idea. The tone shifts between manic, annoying farce and rather dull crime drama. What works are the twisty plot points lifted from the original. What doesn't work is just about everything else. The visuals are occasionally dazzling, but their appeal wears off after a while, especially as overly flashy shots keep alternating with drab scenes in the noodle shop cellar. Stick with the Coens.

The ending feels tossed off, but perhaps that's due to the Coens' delivery being better in almost every way. If it wasn't for a few annoying characters, and a very silly opening, this more comedic offering would have went down smoother. The minimal use of dialogue in the midsection and constantly attractive cinematography are what make it stand out in comparison. While not numbering among my favorites, the consensus of reactions (from what I can tell, either indifferent or negative) perplexes me

Okay, so I get that the Asians want to give the Americans a taste of their own medicine of the shitty remakes-brand, but how about giving us Europeans a heads-up next time? We're in the book.
