天機.富春山居圖 (Switch) (Blu-ray release 2013-8-16) is an expensive Chinese movie about an invaluable painting that the bad guys try to steal while the good guys try to recover.  The only good things about it are: 1. There are beautiful women in this movie, including LIN Chi-Ling, the famous Taiwan model. 2. The director apologized for this movie being so bad.  Being ambitious to include many different elements (including product placements), but lacking the proper script and film making skills, the movie becomes a disjointed set of scenes that jump around so much it completely fails to tell its story properly.  This is just one of the many problems, but it’s pointless for me to list them here.  Chinese audiences joked that this movie is so bad that it has to be seen to be believed.  Perhaps this can serve as a counter example in film school teaching material.
