An intriguing concept let down by its storyline and over reliance on CGI.

I managed to grab a viewing of this as the storyline seemed interesting that a writer could be able to influence the real world and potentially have links to the story world that was created.

There is much that can be commended, which is mostly the creativity and work that had gone into set design and costumes in the story world along with the soundtrack by Jed Kurzel, with clearly significant work done to make each area stand out. There are clear highlights of creativity that definitely show that what China is capable of producing is on par with USA.

Unfortunately, the entire movie is let down with its storyline, which apparently had 4 screenwriters. Interesting elements are brought up and then dropped or never adequately explained, characters seem fairly bland and one dimensional with occasional hints of depth that is not able to be fully explored. I would say this is from trying to fit two linked stories into one movie, which naturally limits screen time for both.

The inevitable final boss fight is the prevalent over-the-top CGI that Chinese movies appear to be going for nowadays; ultimately good looking but the over reliance of CGI and length means as an audience you become disconnected from what's going on in the real world.

Some attempts are made to link things through in the denouement of the film however at this point with so many open ended plot elements it is difficult to know where to go from there.

I think perhaps if more time was spent world building and exploring the writer's abilities and expanding on this in a second movie or a trilogy by reducing the scale of the plot for this initial instalment it would have worked better overall.

Two stories in one!

This movie takes you on a ride that you won't want to get off! An actor would jump at the chance to play any of the characters as they are all equally good and all important to the plot. And what a plot! A man's daughter is kidnapped and he will do anything to get her back. A fantasy novelist is creating more than he knows and is in more trouble than even he could imagine. A "Big Boss" wants to eliminate the writer and uses not his henchman, but a henchperson, that is, a woman who can hold her own in any fight. Add to that a man who is bent on revenge upon losing his sister, and a super-human giant(a God of Destruction)! The film has twists and turns and builds up to a frenzied climax. Should be seen in IMAX, but just see it!

Interesting concept and excellent acting from all lead characters

At first it might seem confusing between the two world but as the story unfold, you will understand the linkage and navigation. The CG in this movie is pretty good and excellent acting skills from the main characters. I personally feel this is good movie and enjoyable for all age.
