    His character was seriously over the top. He wasn't overtly racist, so much as just overtly weird. The only joke about his Asianness was the imported milk, so I don't fault him for his "offensive Japanese weirdness" (especially since Wang is a Chinese surname and Ken Jeong is Korean anyways).

    He seems like a funny ass guy. Before becoming an actor, he did some seriously funny comedy, and is now a highlight in every movie I see. Sure he was over the top, but hey, don't fault him. Especially given how surprisingly impressive his acting was in the moments leading up to Wang's death.

    I agree, I actually felt the urge to punch Leo.

    I liked him! He put his life on the line and his banter with the guy working the copier was hilarious. Dutch was awesome too

    Am I alone in thinking his character was a little too goofy for a guy whose life is theatened by an assassin robot bird?

    The comedy wasn't horrible, but I don't think it was really necessary.

    The dual hand gun scene was a little silly too.

    I loved his character. He added a little dose of comedy (although a bit over the top) to a dark movie.

    Also, "FRIED CHICKEN, BITCH!!!"

    Definitely but last night and this afternoon people thought that was just HILARIOUS, not me. I found the milk drinking funny, the peering at Sam behind the woman at the copier but different strokes for different folks. I'm not into cheap laughs but a lot of people are, it is what it is.

    Most people don't act normal when they know any machine might transform them and kill them.

    Meh. He didn't really annoy me that much, but I didn't really think he was funny, either. He was just kind of...there. :/

    I thought he was fine. Like other people have said, if he had stayed for the whole movie then yeah it could have gotten annoying. But his character actually had a point and helped Sam in the story. And yes, I laughed at his antics. I couldn't help it. I wasn't going to let him piss me off like some people on here. I knew his screentime would be limited.

    No. I actually liked the character. He was a creepy conspiracy theory nut, and in that role he was done just right. Getting Sam the info that was needed to move the plot, and then he got killed. What's to hate? It's not like you haven't seen this kind of character in movies before.

    Right?

    So, we can put him the movie, but have to take the Twinz out?

    No. Just no.

    Having Wang in DotM was 1000% better than anything Leo provided in RotF.


    And as impartial to the twins as I was in RotF, fuck the twins. The perfect effect was struck with Wheelie and Brains. Perfect.

    Didn't care for him and felt he didn't do much other than make Laserbeak seem more ruthless.
