Synopsis:

According to ancient lore, if a human freely offers their heart to a demon, that monster can become mortal, experiencing the true pains and passions of existence. This is the ultimate triumph of the underworld. Xiaowei (Xun Zhou), a millennia-old fox spirit, is freed from her frozen prison and transforms into a dangerous seductress, consuming living hearts to keep her beautiful as she searches for her chance to become human. Meanwhile, Princess Jing (Wei Zhao), hiding her marred beauty behind a golden mask, flees an unknown threat to her kingdom by pursuing the only man she ever loved: the guard who was unable to protect her, so many years ago. A twist of fate brings Princess Jing and Xiaowei together, and a slow game of wits, deceit, and seduction begins for the princess' very own heart.

This is primarily a romance movie; not martial arts one. There is probably about 5 minutes of fighting. Good cinematography though.

This movie is so choppy that it's made no sense at all whatsoever. I've just watched 46 mins 36 secs of non sense, a total waste of time.

This is yet another martial arts movie released this year that has all style but no substance. This movie played out like a knock off version of Kung Fu Hustle, which I would have been perfectly fine with if there was even a semblance of character development. Meh fight scenes coupled with good presentation.

Ya I actually was hoping it was actually about the yang founder like they hyped... There is a direct corelation between the 0 in the name and the hype. I didn't even watch half of it...

This one is slightly better than Tai Chi 0 principally because there are more action and fight scenes, which is what this movie excels at. Aside from that, all good and bad points about the first one are applicable here as well. Just like a Michael Bay movie, this is all flash and no substance. And the quality of acting by the protangonist here is not that far off from Rza in the Iron Fists movie.

Donnie was PERFECT in Ip Man but if we're really gonna compare skill & acting with Jet Li put Ip Man up against Jet Li classics like FEARLESS and Once Upon a Time in China and HERO... Ip Man was done more recently but lets not forget the CRAZY list of movies Jet Li has done! "Fist on Legend" anyone??? come on now... im a HUGE Donnie Yen fan but Jet Li is THE ONE.. literally!

a movie can make a martial artist look rather good regardless of real martial arts skills but to judge the actual "better" martial artist, choreographed fight are not a good way to decide
