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.Read more ›
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.
