Qing Ming, the Yin-Yang Master, took his master's last wish and went to the Captial Tiandu City to attend the heaven ceremony. Qing Ming started off with Boya, the young nobleman and a warrior, as foes of each other, but later they became the best friends . The two partnered as a team and solved the bizarre cases, uncovered a century-long secret, and saved the world from the dark power.Written by
The role of "Boya" is responsible for nearly 80% of the action scenes in the whole movie , and almost all of them didn't allow the director to use a martial art stand-in. The movie crew specially assigned for Deng Lun a personal fitness coach as assistance. During the filming, he strictly followed the fitness diet("pure water boiled, only a little sea salt in the soup")for 8 months. He also gained additional 5 kg of muscle for the role through grueling training. See more »
The movie was great thanks to engaging fighting scenes and great acting from the actors. The CGI used in the film are also top notch and the storyline itself was great. The beginning of the movie was a bit hard to understand but over time the story began to reveal itself slowly and with a great amount of suspense. The plot itself was not predictable which made the film better as it kept you guessing. Kudos to the costume designers as all the outfits all suited the characters perfectly and looked great. Probably the only complaint I have about this movie is that there were a few unnecessary characters in the film that were only probably used to thicken the plot but other than that this film was thrilling to watch and is a great Chinese movie and is worth your time. (It kind of reminded me of detective dee)
