This was a great movie. I was truly surprised how good it was. There were some fantastical Kung Fu scenes, but the story was not soley about Kung Fu. As another reviewer said it was a re-telling of a legend. The film was visually stunning and rich. The character development was average but spoken reference to the main characters back stories helped fill in the gaps. one of the many things I loved about this film was its boldness of stepping into the realm of old asian cultural mythology and presenting it as a reality that all the characters in the film accepted as their reality. It was a cautionary tale of love between humans and demons, an exploration of the Jet Li's assumptions (as the head of a buddhist monastery), a demonstration of faith by the buddhist monks, and a beautiful but subtle revelation of layers of buddhist belief, which unfortunately will be missed by the average american viewer. All of this in a Jet Li Kung Fu movie! what could be better? I love this film and will buy it and rewatch it, which is very unusual for me to do.

This was a very sweet film, more than I expected. The imagery is really beautiful. It's a simple story told simply. It reminds me of the fairytales I read to by daughter. However, it is increadibly touching love story and pulled tears from both my husband and I. It was a pleasant surprise.

I really enjoyed watching this once, the storyline had real integrity, and Jet Li was fun to watch in all the action sequences. I especially enjoyed the opening sequence of the straightforward fight with the Bad Demoness.

I really enjoyed seeing the two snake sisters, Susu and QingQing working together for their combat sequences, and their relationship was really entertaining. The basic story was really solid, the effects were fun, if sometimes a little cheesy, and the theme of the how demonkind and humankind shouldn't mix was solid through...

... but being an American watching a Chinese romance, that whole 'the two lovers can never *stay* happy together* was pretty evident and less satisfying for me than it probably was for the original audience. The need to comply to 'ones own kind' and the whole thread of how Susu's love was selfish by Buddhist/Chinese standards was really clear. I can see why it worked out the way it did, but I really liked Jet Li's character's voiced doubts near the end. I just wasn't particularly happy with how it worked out, and am glad I only rented it.

I saw the, "Panda and The Magic Serpent" cartoon as a child and remembered certain key points of the story. "The Sorcerer and The White Snake" is based on the same Chinese Folktale. The Martial Arts and Special Effects are phenomenal! It is a must see!!

Although it's a fantasy movie based on a legend, this movie does have a great storyline that includes the clear, real message, that the Supreme Creator WILL be there to help you in times of severe Spiritual attack, IF you live within the "Light" of His Divinity (as Fa Hai the sorcerer Monk clearly does). This message also clearly applies to our own every-day lives as well. And the movie also has fantastic visual effects.

I struggled to keep from crying in the last 50-minutes of it because despite this being a “fantasy” movie, there were several real-life metaphysical & Spiritual messages in it that are very powerful, as were the painful lessons in True-Love between SuSu the shape-shifting White Snake Demon and her human Husband Xu Xian.

Thus the last words of a beautiful song during their last moments together: "...we'll meet again in our next lives", beautifully describes one of the most serious conclusions in this movie: the Love between SuSu & Xu Xian is so strong, that Reincarnation & the Holy Creator will bring them together again in their next lifetime, when she will possibly be given the Divine Blessing to be born fully human.

Yet in real-life, Reincarnation is a very well-documented and proven metaphysical & Spiritual phenomenon. And nearly all of us knows of an elder relative or friend who described a particular child as "An old soul..." and "That one's definitely been HERE before!" Most of us also know of someone who was madly in love with another person who was simply NOT good for them—yet they were madly in love anyway, but eventually had to part forever. Erika Badu’s love-song “[I Guess I’ll See You] Next Lifetime” strongly applies here.

This movie is a combination of love story, kung fu, and art. It s not a pure kung fu art movie but in a love story side, please read words and you would see how beautiful it is.

Why Cantonese?
According to the specs on Rightstuf's website, it is in Mandarin (though they are out of stock at the moment). While Magnolia's own website says nothing one way or the other, I believe that Amazon's spec is wrong and the dialog is in Mandarin. Wouldn't be the first time Amazon's writers got it... Read More
