Brand New Trailer for Jet Li’s The Sorcerer and the White Snake

If you like your martial arts movies peppered with mythical creatures and a wide assortment of dodgy special effects, then the upcoming Jet Li epic “The Sorcerer and the White Snake” might be right up your cinematic alley. And while I happen to adore motion pictures of this nature, I strongly suspect that the large amount of CGI tomfoolery contained within Li’s latest endeavor may rub some fans the wrong way. It might be a little rough around the edges, but I think the flick looks immensely enjoyable, even if the special effects aren’t the sharpest I’ve ever seen. Besides, I’m willing to overlook such transgressions if the fights are top notch.

Here’s what the story is all about:

White Snake (Eva Huang), in the incarnation of a beautiful lady, falls in love with a young herbalist Xu Xian (Raymond Lam). With the help of Green Snake (Charlene Choi), she ventured into the human world and got married to Xu Xian. In a twist of event, Fa Hai (Jet Li), a sorcerer from Jin Shan Temple, crosses path with White Snake. A fiery battle is about to begin.

“The Sorcerer and the White Snake” opens in China on this September.

    Looks good. There’s not enough of these mythical/fantasy wuxia films. I’m not counting lame ones with Cloud and Wind. Thinking more along the lines of Zu Mountain.

    I can’t believe Jet Li actually thought that FEARLESS should be his last kung fu movie. This thing looks great, and at least certainly better than FORBIDDEN KINGDOM.
