The Second Chinese animated film I had watched online
9 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Like I said (again), animation is an art form, and I saw that in a few countries in the world, there are some excellent animation. After watching online the 2004 Chinese animated film The Butterfly Lovers, though it was originally made in Taiwan in December 31 of 2003; I had gotten curious about Chinese animation. So on YouTube and on another video site, I had watched the dubbed version and the original version of the film Nezha Conquers the Dragon King, and I love it - both versions. And like I said, the world has lots of wonderful stories to love and to share with other people, and the character of Nezha has frequently appeared in Chinese Mythology, ancient Chinese Literature and this animated film, tells the story of one of these Chinese legends.

The story begins with Li Jing, a military leader of the Chentangguan Pass, who is informed that after a three and half year pregnancy, his wife has given birth to something that looks like a cross between an egg and a lotus flower. Before Li could strike the egg/flower with his sword (as he consider to be something unnatural), the bud open and reveal a small boy. Not long after, a sage named Taiyi Zhenren comes to express congratulations. He names the boy "Nezha", and gives him the Firmament Ring and the Armillary Damask Silk and accept Nezha as his disciple.

When Nezha is seven years old, the Chentangguan Pass is afflicted with a severe drought and Ao Guang, the Dragon King of the Eastern Sea, turns a blind eye to the offerings he received from the people that are suffering from the drought. And worse, he orders Li Gen, his Yaksha guard (an evil ogre-like spirit in Buddhist religion) to hunt and kidnap the town's children so he could eat them. Li Gen manage to kidnap one of the children, which were Nezha's two friends that were riding Nezha's deer friend along the beach. Of course Nezha defeat the Yaksha, and in a rage over Nezha's defiance to his authority, the Dragon King send his third (and probably favorite) son, Prince Ao Bing to capture and kill Nezha. I won't get you anymore details, you'll have to see the film for yourself.

So overall one of the best animated movies ever made, with plenty of fantasy, adventure, humor, shocking surprises and beautiful animation...I loved it!
