If you enjoy watching crazy fantasy martial arts films, then you're going to love this one! This is the trailer for Jet Li's new martial arts film The Sorcerer and the White Snake. The movie has a ton of fantasy elements that are brought to life through CG animated technology. It's not the greatest CG in the world, but it still looks like it could be a really cool movie.
There's a review from Screen Daily that says it's “breathtaking, beautiful and engagingly bonkers, this super-sleek Chinese fantasy romp is brimming with strange and oddly wonderful moments, and despite its inability to make much sense it is a real guilty pleasure of a film.”
This fantasy film is based on an old Chinese legend about an herbalist who falls in love with a thousand-year-old White Snake disguised as a woman. Jet Li stars as a sorcerer who discovers her true identity and battles to save the man's soul.
The film was directed by House of Flying Daggers fight choreographer Ching Siu-Tung. This movie isn't for everyone, but if you're into these kinds of movies like myself, then you'll like what you see in this trailer.
