Can meet with you, I don't what good luck had struck me. Just because of your single kiss I believe that the wheels of fate had turned. Just because of that moment, the moment was filled with sweet and happiness. From now on, every minute and every moment, I will protect you always and let you happy for life.

An incredible story ruined by horrible directing and even poorer CGI. As an American filmmaker,seeing such lazy and over saturated CGI really ruins everything about the film. I really hope they redo this incredible Chinese folklore. The story deserves better. The acting was dismissible. It truly reminds me of China trying to do Hollywood. The ending was very much a soap opera. They even have the repeat flashbacks that checks in every now and then. The makeup was distracting. Jet Li was not used to his full potential. Once again. CGI ruined it! Stop being lazy China. I want to believe it will be the next Hollywood, but not like this. Please don't watch this one.
