The Hate­ful Eight

The Mer­maid

(China) Stephen Chow’s at it again with an­other in­sane CGI-fu­eled frenzy, this time bring­ing the tit­u­lar wa­tery myth­i­cal crea­ture to the screen… with plenty of flimsy one-legged fish leg­gings and silly jokes to get you through the CNY hol­i­days. Opens Feb 8.
