There were so many discussion among our friends regarding which Chinese New Year release is best to watch, and The Mermaid obviously was ahead of the other releases such as The Monkey King 2, From Vegas to Macau 3 and Kung Fu Panda 3.
Unfortunately, it was such a shame that I didn't make it to watch the show at the big screen because I was busy travelling during that period. :(
