I mean, can you imagine picking up a DVD and seeing these quotes?
“Extremely disappointing third entry in the 36th Chamber of Shaolin trilogy”
“Hsiao Hou […] plays quite possibly the most annoying Fong Sai-Yuk in the history of Hong Kong cinema”
“Disciples of the 36th Chamber is a lackluster sequel, and that’s putting it mildly.”
I don’t think that would help sell more copies.
As a side note, I remember contemplating buying a copy of Ong Bak in Singapore, and the one I picked up — purportedly a Mainland Chinese DVD, I think — had pull quotes from a BAD review of Iron Man on the back cover! It said something disparaging about Jon Favreau. Poor guy.
