The Sorcerer and the White Snake

2011 by Ching Siu-Tung Ching - Mandarin movie from China.

I am not a fan of these kind of ultra fantasy movies but one wrong review pushed me to get this dvd. And it turned out to be exactly that kind of a movie that I didnt want to watch.

A movie on the Chinese myth of a snake woman who falls in love with a human. There is a sorcerer who is trying to capture demons and is after the snake woman.

When there is too much of CG, than important cinematic aspects, it is quite difficult to watch a movie. I doubt, if this movie was made trying to reach the levels attained by Avatar. May be.

Whatever, I didnt like it, even if there are some amazing CG work, not consistent though. However, an element of love is quite good.
