Never fall in love with a demon
21 May 2018 | by M1racl3sHapp3nSee all my reviews

I've never seen the previous versions so for me this was a totally new story and I loved it. First of all, the blending between the perfect CGI and the traditional visual art typical of Chinese fantasy movies is really outstanding. I enjoyed the plot because you don't really know what's going to happen next. The acting is so convincing that I cried few times during the movie. I fell in love with each one of the characters; their performance is really outstanding! I also appreciate, in accordance to the ying and yang philosophy, the fact that for every dangerous and scary character, there is a funny and clumsy one to balance the energy and make you laugh. I'm looking forward to watch more of this kind of movies.
