THE GUARDIAN BROTHERS * (Theatrical Release China 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.2|5.0 Starsììì

The Guardian Brothers becomes a low-grade-quality movie for children with its hard-to-follow script, thin storyline, and general lack of character depth. It needs a fleshing out of its back story to follow the story.

Storyline

Two guardian spirits Yu Lei (voice of Edward Norton) and Shen Tu (voice of Jim Gaffigan) help a restaurateur mother and daughter fight off an ambitious competitor.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Gary Wang for his directing efforts. Thank you to Producer Zhou Yu for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: The Health Inspector (voice of Mike Birbiglia), Rogman (voice of Mel Brooks), Shen Tu (voice of Xiaosong Gao), Luli (voice of Nicole Kidman), and The Mayor (Raymond J. Lee).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This movie's cultural aspect is well-received, but the cultural differences are difficult to bridge.

* Also known as Xiaomen Shen, Door Guardians, Little Door Guards.
