After I watched Chen Qing Ling (The Untamed), I found that Xiao Zhan was also in this film, so, I've been waiting a long time for this one to come out. And now, I could finally watch it. Before I watched, I didn't have that much high hope. I only watched it because it has Xiao Zhan. But when the film reached the middle, I found out that it wasn't that bad. The story is quite good and the special effects are good too. That being said, there is something not smooth that can be seen in the special effects. But I'd say it's still doing good. The only thing I don't understand is the English title. "Jade Dynasty" doesn't have anything to do with the word "Zhu Xian". In the other words, those two titles are completely opposite. I wonder how and why did they give such an English title? Talking about title, the title says Zhu Xian 1. So, I guess there's going to be sequel. And also, when the film's finished, I found some of the facts are missing and I feel like it's not complete one. Furthermore, they didn't explain who killed Zhang Xiaofan's the whole villagers. If they explained it, it'd be better. I thought the film was going to be serious. But it turned out it wasn't that much. Still, it's good too. Some scenes are quite funny. I even laughed out loud. But as for the one who loves to watch more serious films, I'd say this one is not that much serious. That being said, comedy is sometimes necessary. So, even it's not that serious, but it's still watchable and I enjoyed it a lot. All in all, I rarely watch around 2 hours run-time Chinese films. So, I can't write review that much. But what I can tell you is that the plot of this film is not that bad, the acting is quite good and the special effects used are fine. Hence, it makes quite a good film. Even if it isn't your taste, I think at least, it's going to be worth a watch. I don't know about others, as for me, I'm going to be looking forward for the second part if they are planning to make it.
