Chinese Reactions to the "Interview"

In response to the article in the Times to the effect that the Chinese viewers were raving about "the Interview", Robert sent me this: "Looked at a couple of Chinese forum threads - here's a few of the comments (Unlike the NY Times, I make absolutely no claim that they are representative of Chinese viewers as a whole, or even Chinese comments on the Internet - I really don't care enough to look any further).
Roughly translated:

"This must be shittiest film I've ever seen. What a crappy story."

"It's a load of crap. A massive disappointment."

"I really admire my patience for sitting through this film. But I seriously wish I hadn't. It has no redeeming features whatsoever."

"Just watched it. It's OK-ish.""
