They Had Me With The Fish

I have never seen a film quite like this and if, as I saw written in one review of it, it is a "proper Chinese Fantasy movie", I'll have to look for a few more of them because I loved it.

The plot lost me quite quickly but I don't really think that's the point. Watch it and you will see what I mean, that they really did have me with the fish.

Generic

THE THOUSAND FACES OF DUNJIA is yet another generic CGI fantasy adventure flick from mainland China; I was hoping it would offer something a little different given the participation of writer Tsui Hark and director Yuen Woo Ping, but sadly it wasn't meant to be. There isn't even any decent martial arts here, wirework or otherwise. The story has a bunch of heroic human characters teaming up to battle evil demons and all kind of magical manifestations, typically taking the form of giant fish and dragons and assorted CGI-heavy spectacle. The CGI effects are about average; some are quite detail and impressive, whereas others look very poor indeed (the meteorites and flying rings in particular). The film is light on plot and structure, heavy on repetitive action, and generally goes through the motions rather than impressing. It's nothing to write home about, that's for sure.

A surprise hit! (pun intended)

I came in thinking this movie would have a serious theme to it. It surprised me how amusing (not in a bad way) and funny a lot of the moments were. The moments where the movie tries to make you laugh, it succeeded. I couldn't help but, literally, laugh out loud in the theatre. Others were definitely doing the same. I feel the comedy worked. For your comparison, I think in Thor: Ragnarok, it tried too hard. I think they were trying to make it like Deadpool (which succeeded in my eyes).

The special effects were definitely amusing in the beginning due to the character. This took me by surprise. But the special effects are not on par with Hollywood blockbusters that we're used to from the United States. I can't fault it too much though, because I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

It entertained, and I will definitely be recommending it to others. I connected with the characters, and the psychology of the relationships between the characters. Anyhow, that's enough from me. I recommend you go see it. :)
