Set during the Xia dynasty, the first ever recorded dynasty in Chinese history. It is a period rife with influences of mythology and folklore since it's close to the beginning of time when Pangu was said to have opened the heaven and the earth. ~~ Based on the novel by "I Eat Tomatoes". Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
They ruined it so badly that even subtitlers are refusing to translate it...
Why ruining such masterpiece with a b-movie level production? In term of popularity and ranking ‘Desolate Era‘ is second only to the king of all xianxia novels, ‘I Shall Seal The Heavens’ by Er Gen. Doesn’t make any business sense.
Not only the CG is cheap, the acting is sub-par and the screenplay adaptation is a mess... but the cinematography, one of the best points of the chinese drama industry, is so poor that it looks made by an amateur with no experience in framing and lighting a scene.
Deeply disappointing. I hope in the future someone with better intentions will make a new adaptation from the immortal masterpiece of IET, because this is as useless as it gets.
