Comedy "Let the Bullets Fly" was the big winner of the year end film frenzy, with bountiful box office earnings. But for those who would prefer not to pay 60 or 70 yuan to watch it on the big screen, there's now an option to watch it on the Internet. As convenient as it might be, it's still not free, but it can sure save your budget.

Some websites have provided the online viewing of "Let the Bullets Fly", and the average fee is five yuan, for unlimited viewing within 48 hours.

But there are varying opinions about this paid service.

Netizen said, "I think it's reasonable. I've watched the film in theater several times. But it costs a lot. I think 5 yuan for viewing online is OK."

Netizen said, "I've been watching videos online for many years. And they are all free. So I can't accept this paid service."

Website managers say the paid service of watching films is just a try. At this stage, they are still getting feedback from the audience.

Video Website Manager, said, "If you want to watch videos online, you either pay some time and watch some ads, or you pay some money instead. Otherwise, it's like taking something from an online store for free, which is an impossible set up."

The question of whether or not paid online film watching will become popular in China is still a long way from a final answer.
