Not Hu's best
16 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

King Hu's take on the old Liaozhai tale of The Painted Skin is merely OK. I expected much from the great Hu as his previous film were never anything less than greatness. Thia film feels a tad more dated then his other films.One can;t help but compare it to his similarly themed "Touch of Zen", and this movie suffers because of that. Adam Cheng is good in the role of Wang Hsi-Tzu, a young scholar having a bad luck day and befriending a ghost. Sammo Hung is excellent as always (well in his non-US movies at least) as a high monk that Wang comes across. And it still remains a film worth watching, it just pales to everything Hu had made in the past.

My Grade: C+

DVD Extras: Trailers for "Running out of Time", "Dragon Inn", "Armageddon", and "the Duel"
