的確相當有香港特色的 >> 一個純商業化的Show︰大量唔關事的東西.....
而真正動漫的成份又少的可憐。那個 Art Idol倒令我有半滴興奮(其實與落描道場差無幾).

Hong Kong company Centro Digital Pictures also has been chosen to make Disney's first-ever non-Hollywood Chinese movie, "The Magic Gourd," which mixes animation and live action.
Amid dwindling interest in Hong Kong film, is computer animation the future of the Hong Kong entertainment industry?
Animators here boast that they offer a unique sensibility that combines Hong Kong's action cinema legacy and a deep awareness of both Asian and Western cartoon traditions in an English-speaking environment.
Industry experts say, however, that Hong Kong animators are merely taking outsourcing jobs from Hollywood by offering cheaper pricing while not generating creative ideas on their own - a point that people here concede is true, at least for now. (這一點大家同意嗎?)
At Imagi, which designed the turtle fighters in TMNT, Co-Chief Executive Douglas Glen is gung-ho about the prospects of a company that once made artificial Christmas trees and furniture and switched over to animation completely in 2002.
The former Mattel executive said computer artists in this Chinese-ruled former British colony blend the best of the East and the West.
"If our director says, 'I want this character in this film to react like Wilma Flintstone to this situation,' they get it, because people here have seen The Flintstones and they've seen all the Japanese anime," he said.
Glen said for TMNT - a take-off on the 1990's Teen-age Mutant Ninja Turtle films - Imagi didn't even hire an action choreographer because kung fu is "in the DNA" of its 350 Hong Kong-based animators.
During a visit to Imagi's Hong Kong offices, animators worked on computer drawings in cubicles cluttered with figurines including Mr Potato Head and the popular Japanese character Doraemon. Neighbouring shelves were lined with Japanese comic books.
But while Hong Kong's computer graphics industry dates back some two decades, it's still growing. A survey of 57 "digital entertainment companies" in 2004 - the most recent study of its kind - found that most employed fewer than 10 people and about a third had annual revenues of under $HK500,000.
"Hollywood's interest in Hong Kong animation is mostly financial," says Tom McLean, a US-based journalist who writes a blog on cartoons for the Hollywood trade magazine Variety.original article: theWEST.com.au

Ben Procter，電影 Transformers 的 Lead Robot Illustrator，他的網站有大量Transformers的作品。製作TMNT時曾經和他合作一段短時間，善長以3D軟件 (XSI) 直接"創作與設計"，超快靚正。TMNT中富豪Winter的豪宅基地便是他的設計。
我隊中的Spencer與 Sang也是這方面的取向，希望他們以超越Ben為目標，期待將來有更出色的成績。努力 ! 努力 !

故事簡單但緊湊，不花巧，做的就是要把Die Hard拍得最Die Hard的動作片，很成功!! 娛樂性一流!!
最好看是John McClane只是普通的警察，不是什麼超人，只是以死硬不服輸的毅力去kickthe bug's ass! 那種不要命的拼搏最吸引。
也很喜歡"Hackers could end the world"的橋段，還有戰機 F-22，很誇張，但很好看!
"...I don't want to be "that Guy", I rather let someone do that...but if no one do that, i will do that."...that makes me become that guy, the hero.
