The Sorcerer and the White Snake

Rated PG-13 100 minutes 2011

You know those fake visual effects sequences in commercials that showcase how awesome that new 60-inch plasma TV is? The Sorcerer and the White Snake is kind of like a collection of those sequences, and in fact, the movie would probably be just as good if that’s what it was. There is a story in here; however, it’s buried under a seven-layer dip of CGI. The Chinese love the legend of the white snake, which has been passed down for thousands of years, and obviously there are better versions of the tale or it wouldn’t have survived long enough to be butchered in the 21st century. If you’re expecting great martial arts moves (since this film features Jet Li), you’ll be disappointed. But even if you’re not expecting a furious flurry of kicks and punches, you’ll still be pretty disappointed.
