4*** only for the beautiful Chen Chi Lin and the first song
After getting the film, I had a short look on it.
As I loved so much the song in the beginning, with its kind peaceful seventies spirit... the actress was just so cute and sung so well
that I decided to stop the movie and spare it for a later viewing, on an quiet evening.
I really thought it was going to be a Peace and Love martial movie (if possible !)
So, one evening, I put it on... guessing to have a gentle movie, with villains not too bad and charming women and cool music...
Oh boys, on some way I had it... yes, music is 70th and naive, yes, first song is superb to me, and the others are OK...
The girls were pretty ! Especially Chen Chi Lin has a beautiful face and voice (unfortunately she did only few movies and mainly horror ones I don't like)
Now the dark points : the villains are really bad... as are made the snakes, cheesy, sort of chewed paper completely unreal... and the end, logical,understandable, but deceptive
So, this supposed to be peaceful movie was not that type; a kind of colourful fantasy, yes, with funny parts, yes, but finally deep dark drama! ! What makes the last sentence not definitely true, is because the snakes and Special effects are so poorly made (usually the special effects are supposed to make us believe it is for real, no?) that brings everything close to a comedy !
And the positive points, even if I really dislike the end, are :
an adored song, others OK - nice chicks (should I say girls?) - Ti
Lung and his friends are cool - a Romeo and Juliet love story
Don't expect as I did any real martial arts in this half kind movie.
Not a great achievement realized, but still pleasant for the above mentioned points, I sometimes listen to the songs, yes, I like their naive spirit !
8*** but the half of them just go only for Chen Chi Lin, Ti Lung and the songs... and 5-6*** max if we talk more seriously...
