Cast & Credits
The actors did a fairly good job with each of their parts. The name "Thomas" for one of the lead characters seemed really strange while the other was "Ai Fei". It just seemed so out of place to me. Other than that, the acting isn't the worse I have seen. The characters were true to their roles but a warning to those who watch the CUT version, they got rid of most of the BL scene between Thomas and Ai Fei (disappointing me to no end).
The music that accompanied the movie was kinda weak. The emotional scenes that were accompanied with the piano made me really get into that mood. However, most of the scenes don't even have background music and I think if it did, I would have enjoyed it better, it would have built tension or expressed the mood better.
I watched the CUT version and I realize (and regret it) now because all the scene I have been looking forward to was nowhere to be found. I was so mad. I can't wait til I can re-watch it but this time, the UNCUT version. It looks like they spent all their money on the intro because the visual effects are really weak but not so much that it was un-watchable. The fighting scenes as well, they were not the worse I have seen but they were definitely not the best.
Overall, I recommend you watch this but don't expect too much on the ending. I really want a sequel because this movie didn't answer all my questions and is kinda open-ended.
Is it the best BL movie you're ever going to see? If you only watch pretty bad ones or average ones, then yes, this one's certainly not bad - but I'm not going to claim it's the best one out there.
Does this movie have the greatest special effects in the world? Absolutely not. Far from it, actually. The effects were meh to just plain ol' bad. It's obvious that they didn't have the biggest budget for the CGI, but they worked with what they had and it worked out okay.
There are some things this movie does do very well which make it a very enjoyable watch. The story, for one, is rather original and throughout the movie, they just keep throwing new stuff at you so it doesn't get boring at all. Whenever I thought, "Ah, this is getting a bit bland...", the movie was like *Bam! More plot!* (and by plot, I mean actual plot... and also really great BL scenes if you can find the uncut version).
The chemistry between our main characters was also pretty great. Like I said, if you manage to find the uncut version or you watch the cut version and find the cut scenes online (I found some on facebook of all places!) and watch them at roughly the right moment, your itching for BL will be scratched. There was a lot of wholesome and unwholesome content. Bless the creators and actors, seriously.
Overall, I can honestly say that it was a good movie, not the best, but good enough. Original, great chemistry, music was okay (in the version I watched, the sound kind of faded in and out of existence so I couldn't really pay it that much attention), try to find the uncut version!
