The best science fiction movie from Chinese.

After been watching tons of thousands of Hollywood science fiction movies or superhero movies, I already had no interest or hope for Chinese film because of many reasons. But this one indeed blowed my mind and I just can't wait to watch it again.
Just watched the IMAX 3D movie. Trust me, don't do it any other way. Imagine ten of thousands of fusion thrusters are pushing our planet away from a dying sun on a IMAX screen. The visual effect is impressive and goes well with the story. The story is not everyday Hollywood style: Superhero saves the day; everyone else is there to give a round of applause. This movie brings a serious question to the audience: What are you gonna do facing an unavoidable, irresistible disaster to our civilization? All characters in the movie are ordinary people and everyone gives their answer with shining humanity. Against all the odds no one gives in without a good fight. The chance of success is close to zero but they choose hope. All the efforts add up and make impossible nothing. It is a Sci-Fi fan's feast you dont want to miss.
刚刚看完imax的3d版。听我一句劝，别这样做。想象一下成千上万的聚变推进器将我们的星球推离濒临死亡的太阳（是何等的壮观）。 视觉效果令人印象深刻，与故事相得益彰。 这个故事不是大家司空见惯的好莱坞风格：英雄救美，庸人鼓掌。这部电影把一个严肃的问题摆在观众面前：当我们的文明面临一场无可避免，无可抗拒的灾难时，你会做些什么？电影中的所有人物都是普通人，每个人都以闪亮的人性光辉给出了自己的答复。一反以往的套路，在大战来临前没有人轻言放弃。成功的机会几乎为零，但他们仍旧选择了希望。所有的努力汇聚在一起，使不可能变得不可能。这是一场科幻爱好者的盛宴，你绝对不会想要错过她。
For example, I'll except（译注：应该是打错了expect） shelters, spaceships in Hollywood movies when Earth is no longer good for human survival. But in Chinese culture, we will never leave our home back. We will try our best and bring everyone together. Then this what we saw in the movie, we put 10000 engines on Earth and run away together, lol.
And there's no more about superheros and individualism to save the world. The movie is about how everyone works together to save the world. Yeah, not even a single rescue step in the movie was completed by protagonist's team only. Always multiple teams works in different places on same thing at the same time for the best result. This was mentioned in the movie, which was called Saturated rescue. No longer like winning multiple lottery in a row by one guy to save the world. This is all about everyone is trying their best.
I'm so satisfied by this movie. Especially tons of mega projects which i personally considered as Chinese specialty lol.
This movie has a lot of dialogues, more than that's necessary in most scenes. Unless its dubbed, I don't think an English-speaking audience could fully enjoy it. Another issue is the cast, almost entirely comprised of rookies. Though the acting is not bad, it's certainly not consistent either.
People who had read The Wandering Earth held high expectations for the film adaptation, those expectations have certainly been met.
