A terrific fantasy drama.
15 March 2018 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is quite a terrific fantasy drama from Hong Kong , starring Jacky Cheung as Ga Yat Lung, a young warrior who falls in love with Mung Suet (Joey Wang), the day of her sacrifice to the Ghost King. To save her and the village, with the help of Fox Demon Ching (Sharla Cheung), Ga Yat Lung springs into action.

There are plenty of excellent special effects and adventurous moments to make this movie entertaining, in addition to well-acted drama that kept the suspense and intrigue alive. Even my dad, a big critique of Hong Kong films, enjoyed this movie immensely.

The plot is solid and fast-paced and grabs at your attention. A great one!

Grade A
