It was nice i guess, but it could've been better

When I watched this, I thought I watched the wrong movie and baited me because it started off with a mild horror scene, and you know that white lady look in an old horror film where the iris of the eyes is like a small black dot, I find that in today's standard a very generic look, It's a good jumpscare, but it doesn't feel scary to me at all... I didn't know that scene was just used to set up the characters that we're gonna follow.

The story is really heartwarming, it's about a cold-hearted girl discovering the warmth feeling and being in love for the first time, and pretty much so it was done very well, but there are some parts in the movie that I felt like it would've impacted well if they built it up properly because there are some things that just happened out of nowhere to make things happen and some things that were left unexplained or they've never expanded on it properly.

The CGI in this film is not perfect, it's a B-grade film so I tried to be open-minded about it and kudos to the editing department because it was used cleverly, around the middle of the film though, it looked like they kinda gave up because the green screen editing became really obvious and not clean, but it's only that portion. The Fighting choreography in this film is really good, it looked like that aspect got a big budget. The sets are really good looking especially the Underworld, it kinda looks familiar as well... was that the same set in the later bit part in 'The Longest Promise'???

The characters, since they can be counted with 2 hands, no one was wasted or maybe there are some because 2 of them for me were pretty much passive, the last character that they introduced/added was done really fast, they've hinted it once, but it was soo minor that I doubt you would expect it. ML and FL's dynamic is cute and has nice chemistry as well. ML wasn't really explored that much so I hardly got attached to him, the way he fell in love with FL wasn't really built up, so it kinda looked like an asspull and they pulled a fast one on that plot twist about the two at the end. FL is really cute tho, i like her acting... that's it. I watched this mainly because of Wang Xing Chen and she's pretty as always, knowing how hot she is, i noticed that the directors really like her body assets huh? because in every media that she's in, she would always be introduced in a perverted way, so i kinda feel bad to her about it.

Notice how i gave the music a very low score because, i watched this on iQIYI's youtube channel and the audio sucked ass, every now and then it would sound muffled like you're under the water, and then would return to normal.

Overall it was a nice fantasy/action/romance, i came out not thinking like I wasted my time, I would say I had a bit of a pleasant time watching the movie, but I probably wouldn't go back and watch it again.
