Before I saw you I meditated for a thousand years, but those thousand years are worth less than a moment with you.

When I saw the preview to The Sorcerer and the White Snake I knew I had to see it. If you're a fan of movies like "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon", "House of Flying Daggers" and "A Chinese Love Story" then you need to give this movie a go! The one fall back in this movie is the CGI work, but I'm sure the producers are also less than happy. The movie had AMAZING potential if the special effects were at a high production value. With that being said, the story line is heart warming and easy to fall in love it, a classic tale of the forbidden love between humans and demons. At the end of this movie you could feel a slight bit of joy and sadness rolled up into one.
Make an effort to look past the bad CGI (which mind you could still be a lot worse), and you could have a movie in your library that you fully intend to revisit.
