One can only hope that it's better than the Chinese Live Action "Dragon Ball" film.

I wonder how they are going to handle the flying space trains.

SA's review doesn't do it justice at all. They just barely mention Turtle-Man's dance scene, which even manages to trump the NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! from Revenge of the Sith as the most unintentionally comedic moment in modern cinema!

Anyways, I am VERY nervous about this. I could see Terry Gilliam pulling it off maybe, but not really anyone else...haven't seen any of this guy's stuff though.

Hells yes!!! SAMMO HUNG!!! XDXD

I've totally loved him ever since the days when me and my parents used to watch Martial Law everyday. That show needs to come out on DVD or something. ;p

Sammo Hung is awesome. Even in Osaka Wrestling Restaurant, in which he did absolutely nothing!

Since it's only loosely based on Galaxy Express 999, I'd guess the flying space trains will be... CG.
