What the HELL is White Snake?

667 125 Megtekintés

This was a beautiful Chinese animated film but it made me ask a lot of questions like "was this meant for kids?" cause the movie was rated for 7 year olds and up on Amazon but lemme tell ya...there's a LOT of spicy stuff in this film that would not fly in a Disney movie lol

  • Luckily this was not Disney, and kids in China are not subdued to political correctness and are more allowed. By the way, Kungfu Panda was really not that much of a big deal in China, they are fed loads of animation from homegrown or from japan for decades, so they have been spoiled with animated films.

  • Implied sex is nbd in China, they have a much healthier attitude around sexuality in most regards. The fact there was violence on this level is actually surprising though, they censor violence the same way the west censors sexuality.

  • Having watched both the 2019 & Light Chaser's new Nezha retellings, I really like the way these films operate with the assumption that you already know the legend. As an outsider, comparing adaptations for hints has been a lot of fun. It makes me want to learn more about the original stories. I don't like when western films explain their references, so I doubt I'd enjoy a Chinese movie that tries to handhold foreign audiences.

  • From my experience watching Chinese animations (mostly what I've seen from this studio), they seem to be more style vs substance. Idk if, like you said, its cultural difference that make me value different things when it comes to characters and story telling, but I feel like this studio is so close to making some really good movies.

  • 故事被改编的更现代化,原著里青蛇是雄性,自愿跟随在白蛇身边。因为中国人一般都熟知这个故事,所以我们都比较快的接受新的人物设定。大家能喜欢真的太好了,因为我在电影院看的时候哭了(damn)!

  • I knew who you were referencing!!

  • China is only catching up because they steal IP from the US and other nations

  • Sounds like a van helsing falling in love with a vampire type dynamic. Should've definitely explored that more. Beautiful looking film though

  • The target was domestic market, maybe that's why some part of it feels confusing for diff-culture viewers. It's still a good movie and I watched it twice.

  • What was a bit stupid, again, at the end was when Shen|Swen saved Blanka. He used the special device to stop the red snakes and killed them then rushed into the ice with her. He could stop the machine, since he knows how to use it and wouldn't HAVE TO sacrifice himself to save her. yes it was noble to protect her and all BUT Shen could stop the device and saved both of them. Guess he forgot about it :S He's kind although should be more careful!

  • I like this movie! it has good animation, sweet music, likable characters and cool villains, excellent action scenes and romance. It's awesome, a fun and tragic adventure :D Verta was a bit stupid at the end when the deathly scales were sucked by the villain during the final battle. If she didn't told him what it was, he could be dead but for some reason the snake lady decided to REVEAL TO HER ENEMY what this thing is. That was dumb U-U Beside that, she got a sassy personality; Verta is smart, strong and fast. I like her! I find it weird that the chief of the snakes took their soul to become stronger. I mean, if she need them to kill the humans or find infos about her other enemies they can't since she kill them. This women isn't that clever :S Also, having too much strenght|power is never good cause it's hard to control and would kill you. Guess she forgot about this important detail.

  • Saber is a horny fello

  • The film was visually really beautiful. I do feel that the story telling could use some expanding on to really feel well-paced and more fleshed out, but the key concepts to make it really great were there. It's made me very curious about the original folktale too now. About Xuan and white snake girl tho. I think I know why they felt bland. There were many spots in the film where they could of taken advantage and created all sorts of juicy conflict between the two. Xuan's fear of snakes for example would of made an excellent obstacle for him to get through while falling in love with the white snake girl. Maybe even funny. I also feel that he should of been more thoughtful/fearful about demons. His "who cares" remark about the danger and fear felt too flippant for the kind of world they lived in. White snake girl was a bit too gloomy for me and some of her actions left me feeling confused. Like the sex scene. Just because it happened right after white snake girl remembers she's mortal enemies with mankind and then wants to leave her new bf imedietly after litterally making love to him 2 minuets ago. Like, ok. O u c h. Xuan also throwing his humanity away... I get the reasoning they were going for but the way he did it felt like it cheapened the value of what he was really giving up. It still felt like a human-demon relationship could of worked, like he didn't actually have to go that far yet. Where was his sense of dignity and self-preservation? The kid flung himself at the idea of becoming a demon too fast! I think it would of ended up meaning more to us as the audience if he had gone to the fox lady because he was in a really desperate situation. Like, maybe becoming a demon was the only way he could save white snake girl or something I dunno. Something that raised the stakes so high he no longer had the option to not consider it. It could of worked really well into the jade seller's motto too. Him getting something precious if he gives something that's precious _to him_ in return. Ah I'm sorry. It's just very hard not to notice the parts that could of turned this film into something even more beautiful. Actually, while the characters did feel a bit dull, the scene where Xuan dies? It was really great. It was very moving and so sad. It gave me a lot of Titanic vibes and made me very tearful

  • most American animations female roles have no souls, they are just beautiful dollars, their life is just wearing beautiful closes and wait for a rich, handsome, and brave guy to save them. But Chinese very famous folk tales are most girls are very strong, for example, mu lan, white snake, Mu GuiYing, the seventh daughter of god(A Maid from Heaven), Cowherd and Weaver Girl, etc.. All are female roles are very strong and strong ability, smart girls.

  • If you want to know yes that’s how the Chinese do their animation. For me as an American I have gotten use to watching Asian stile movies and they are very different from what an American audience is use to. When I watched this movie I thought it was wonderful, then my dad watched it and he was epicly confused. It just how the difference in animation stile changes from Asian to American.

  • the animation remembered me on some parts of the chinese mobile games, like certain portions of the battle scenes look like a legit mobile game cinematic ad lol but gladly the overall tone was good. the "love" going fast I think that was because the myth of being "soul bond" as is on many eastern folktale, which IS the case on the original white snake folktale, so probably the movie just did one up about it and went with the same concept, but in a implied way, considering how the sisters talk about it. some of the scenes may make 0 sense to western audiences because the film is packed with eastern symbiology that usually everyday people that have no contact with have absolute no idea

  • I would honestly LOVE to see you make a video on NEZHA! That movie LITERALLY BROKE records in the box office in China! It surpassed films such as; Zootopia, Incredibles 2, Shrek 2 and Spirited Away! Also its the first installment in a fictional universe based on the stories told in the Fengshen Yanyi (the next being "Legend of Deification", featuring Jiang Ziya). Definitely one you should make a video on!!
