terrific blend of comedy, melodrama, action, and violence.
Sometimes you get more than one of these in the same sequence.
Hollywood is supposed to be remaking this. If It does, I can't see them doing anything but a watered down version. Because although the movie is described as a comedy, the violence is pretty violent. it's not that hollywood can't do violence. But what I don't believe they can do is mixup violence with comedy, the way does movie does. This movie reminds me of The Host, which was another movie which effectivly mixed comedy and other elements. You can imagine Hollywood executives saying "hey, it's a comedy, let's tone down the violence"
I'm not one for automatically putting down remakes. But in the case of this movie, I really hope Hollywood leaves it alone, because as far I'm concerned, they don't have the imagination to do it justice.
