    Great flick for asian cinema or Jet Li fans

    I am a huge fan of both Asian cinema in general and of Jet Li, so this was pretty much an instant buy for me. The cinemetography and special effects are spectacular and the story is very imaginitive. The film is roughly a 50/50 mix of action set against elaborate set pieces and actual story/character development, so if you are looking for just straight up martial arts action this may not be your ticket. That being said, the film is definitely a visual feast from start to finish and most of the actors turn in solid performances, Jet Li in particular. There are a few "quirky" characters that seem to be there more for comic relief, but that seems to be a staple in many of these types of films. If I would ciriticize anything, I would have preferred a slightly more serious tone throughout given the overall themes of human vs. demon conflict and the forbidden love story, but at the end of the day it was an enjoyable and highly imaginitive film that is worth viewing.

    Who doesn't like a Jet Li movie? The visual effects are on the cheesy side but the story plot is awesome and I am so glad I was able to get a copy for my self to add to my BIG movie collection before it would be discontinued. If you like movies like these, please get your copy now before they sell out. That happened to me with The One by Jet Li. Sold out everywhere and only 1 person had two bluray copies on eBay so I bought 1 of the two copies.

    This movie was very fun to watch, and was great to watch in HD. It is moving art both cinematically and visually. It has a definite import feel as far as story telling and character development goes, so American audiences may be a bit thrown off at first if they haven't seen many martial arts themed movies. However, it is almost fairytale like in that the world is surreal and the visuals are fantastic. The story is a bit scattered, but there is enough action to keep your attention and really has re-watchability.

    Entertaining fantasy story with some nice special effects. The movie is centered around a demon and her human husband and their struggles. Jet li is more of a supporting character then the box cover would have you believe, though he does have some impressive scenes.

    i thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was a nice blend of Fantasy,Fairytale and Martial arts Genres. If you enjoyed Crouching Tiger,Hidden Dragon... 47 Ronin or Fantasy based Martial Arts films or are just a Jet Li fan this is the movie for you...

    Bizarre mythology, typical senseless kung fu plot, but a video blowout using lots of white screen and Bollywood CGI. Don't see if you think Buddha had something to do with philosophy, or you will be offended.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    the action and transformations just blow your mind away. teaching you love can happen between any beings. doesn't always have to be forbidden. there is good in what we believe is evil. but watch out for the nasty.

    Excellent visuals, but not an action movie.

    Such a beautiful movie, but not what I expected from Jet Li. His movies are usually action packed. While this one does have action, it's really more of a romance. Great movie, but I was left disappointed.
