Just Another Pandora's Box (越光宝盒) Movie review

Today, i watched this movie after cycling class and since this movie is HIGHLY recommended by Mr Leong WJ. I watched it alone since ms Pan not very into Chinese comedy.

This the last time pandora's box

Here the synopsis:

Once upon a time, in a heavenly world of magic and wonder... Rose, like many young fairies, is obsessed with the exploits of the legendary Purple Cloud. She steals the Heavenly Sword and travels to the modern day world of mortals in search of her one true love. Here, she meets Qing Yise, a young thief who sees a tidy profit in Rose's enchanted weapon. Mistaking Yise's interest for a sign that he is "the one", Rose becomes infatuated with the charismatic swindler. Horrified by the depths of Rose's affections, Yise attempts to flee... only to be apprehended by the local police.

As Rose and Yise band together to resist their captors, Yise uncovers a magical artifact: the Pandora's Box. Opening the box he is instantly transported a thousand years into the past and begins an incredible journey that is filled with fantasies, traveling through a Chinese Odyssey, Red Cliff, Kung Fu Hustle, Painted Skin, Kung Fu Panda, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and even The Matrix.

Here my summary:

I sure this movie will lighten your tough day. This movie is combination of many movies, like what mentioned in the synopsis. Maybe this movie not make sense, but it was enuf to laugh out my stomach. This movie really daring..very daring...what the hell they also dare to combine into this movie..and also many big casting too..

Actually this is a love story but made in a comedy style....

My overall review: 8/10

p/s: But when waiting this movie, i saw the IP MAN 2 trailer, it seems more interesting than Pandora's Box...hahaha
