When an herbalist falls for a 1000-year-old white snake masquerading as a woman and finds his life turned upside down, a sorcerer (Jet Li) must face treachery and deception in order to save his crumbling kingdom and the young man's soul. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Incredible fantasy story. Action, adventure, romance, magic, supernatural beings, something for everyone! Striking visuals. Flawless special effects, spectacular stunt work. A Masterpiece. Filmed in Mandarin but smooth dubbing with English speaking actors (like Li) doing their own voices. Highly recommended! If you are looking for typical Kung Fu fare you'll be disappointed. Jet Li plays a Sorcerer/Monk, Master/Teacher of demon fighter/exorcists. This is Fantasy/SF! Be sure to set your language preferences or you'll think you're stuck with sub-titles. Not for young children for fantasy violence, monsters and, um, "unusual" eroticism.
This is the worst film EVER! Me and my husband got through 20 mins and shut it down. Terrible, Terrible movie. The only people I see who would enjoy this is probably children, and then too, they may look at it and say its a boring movie.
