Watch this if you liked: "Titanic"

The Good, the Bad and the Sinking Ship

• The film is dubbed as the 'Chinese Titanic' for its similar approach and plot essence as the original "Titanic".

• The choreography of the action sequence seems a bit stiff and unnatural.

• The film ended in a cliffhanger for obvious reasons but if the story is not so slow, making it into a single film without the second part would have been possible too.

Look Out For

• The ethereal and exquisite natural beauty of Taiwan's idyllic countryside view as portrayed in the film.
