Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE is a beautifully shot martial arts fantasy movie with vibrant colors and nonstop action. The special effects are breathtaking, and so are the fight sequences. Although some aspects of the story might be lost on American audiences, the final result is a wholly unique and imaginative tale that is as unforgettable as it is dazzling.

Although it's thoroughly entertaining, the nightmarish images of evil demons and hellish landscapes make this one to avoid for younger or sensitive kids. However, for teens and older -- especially those who are fans of fantasy and martial arts movies -- The Sorcerer and the White Snake should emerge as one of the better movies of the genres due to its lavish production, romantic story line, and innovative action sequences.
