Watched: The Bride With White Hair (I + II)

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

I watched both Movies today. I hoped that it was something like A Chinese Ghost Story. Well, it looked like it and it is certainly from the same time and most probably from the same studio. However, it was something complete different be it the plot as well as the quality itself. Everything has it’s flaws, the acting, the camera work, the plot, even the score. Personally I think, that the director did screw these movies. So much lost potential, it could have been an epical tale about love, pain, distrust and loyalty. Instead we got what we got.

Don’t waste your time on this, just for hardcore HK fans.
