First major big-budget hardcore Chinese production of sci-fi film. Before watch i worried the plot could be some old Hollywood cliche-one hero saves the world-only made by Chinese directors and actors. Turned out wrong. Anti-individualism, the true sense of Internationalism, the view of human race as a one whole entity, heavy sense of homesickness are factors that broke ground in the sci-fi field. Sacrifices CAN BE meaningless. Most of the characters totally died in vain, making the whole story heavy and solemn, and this is actually the real relation between the powerless individual and the mighty cosmos.
Even so, the adaption showed the exact essence of the original story, which was a fruit of Chinese traditional style of narrative, exhibiting human's strong will across the generations and time, achieving one goal against all odd, even though the methods might seem dumb and clumsy, full of obstacles of every kind.
