A 2011 movie (directed by Tony Ching) with a twist based on a famous Chinese legend (The Legend of the White Snake). The focus in this movie is more about the monk, aka the sorcerer, acted by Jet Li. So yeah, I went to the movie just because Jet Li is the leading actor. For some Chinese, especially Hong Kong movie goers, the attraction is probably Raymond Lam.

Personally, I enjoyed the acting and the pace of the movie. What it lacks is probably our sense of reasoning! But since it's a legend, what can I say? Enjoy it for what it is!
