Olivier Samter’s review published on Letterboxd:
Every now and then there are moments that give us glimpses of what this could‘ve been, had they focused more on getting the „coping with loss“ storyline right. Unfortunately, they didn’t. As a result, we get this mess.
The songs don‘t work – not only don’t they help the story at all, but they‘re also bland and forgettable. And the character development is flawed, to say the least.
Also, I just hate how after „Mulan“ this is yet another example of Hollywood trying to get into the Chinese market while not trusting Chinese filmmakers to tell the story.
This film needed a bunch of things – none of which is being offered by the likes of Glen Keane and John Kahrs.
