One of Tsui Hark's most ambitious films

Green Snake is an absolutely beautiful film... the sets and the cinematography are just amazing. The story is compelling too, and the direction intriguingly stylised. Of course the special effects are a bit cheap looking - this is a HK film after all (and they're nowhere near as bad as those in MAGIC CRANE). The rest of the visuals are fantastically opulent though, and the atmosphere of the film is well created.

Definitely one of Tsui Hark's most ambitious works - and Maggie Cheung has never looked sexier!
