I like Ti Lung. He made a lot of good movies, and I own many of them.
Snake Prince is not one of the good ones. Snake Prince must almost be seen to be believed how wrong a good idea went, and how talent can be thrown away.
Imagine a typical Shaw Brothers studio shot of a wooded glade, a palace, the usual settings--now, imagine it with colors worthy of 1968 and music from 1966. Every time the story needs to get moving, mediocre rock music intrudes, along with droves of dancers all dressed alike.
Alas, this is not one of the movies that is so foul it is amusing, like Wolf Devil Woman. Snake Prince is just foul; every time it hints at getting itself organized into a story, things fall apart once more, even with Ti Lung's game portrayal of the nice-guy snake prince.
