The acting looks really decent, might even watch this even though they all talk in foreign.

i don't know what the big deal about foreign films that americans are turned off on. Just becuz ppl DON'T want to read, they'll settle for the remake or simply ignore it...so pathetic. not an attack on you Crapola, in any way.

Chilin, I am deeply offended, just joking, the 'talk in foreign' is a saying my friends have, it's more a dig at people who can't watch films with subtitles, personally I don't mind watching subtitled films.
