Storyline

In the twilight of the Ming Dynasty, the Imperial court is plagued by corruption as tyrants rule over the land. With the Manchurians preying on a weakened empire, war is imminent. To save the victims from their suffering, sorceress Jade Raksha fights the soldiers that oppress people for their own gain. As payback, local government officials decide to pin the murder of Governor Zhuo Zhonglian on Jade, turning her and the members of her cult into wanted fugitives for a crime they didn't commit.

Bad Editing = Bad Movie
18 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

An epic alike Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon this movie is not.,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Unless you know a bit about Chinese history you are not going to know much about what is happening as the scenes and characters seem to go from one place to the next without much explanation and everything becomes a blur of narrative.

There is obviously an overriding love theme in the movie but this is a major distraction from the flow - the story seems to go really fast until slow, "un-natural" and rather boring scenes of romance between the two leads.

The Good - Some of the fighting scenes are done well but there are not too many of those.

The Bad - The romance between the leads is quite mechanical and not very believable.

The Ugly - Someone got the scissors out too many times especially at the start of the movie-making you wonder what is ultimately happening. Then suddenly someone is giving someone red pills......wait am I watching "The Matrix"

The CGI is particularly awful at the last scene - which at a supposedly emotional moment I laughed my heart out. Those who watch will no doubt do the same.
