I went into this expecting a completely different story, due to the odd synopsis. Within the first 5 minutes, I knew this was no ordinary tale. I was endeared. The story unfolded to deliver the traditional tale of one who isn't accepted due to the asshats of the universe branding the main character as "bad" before they have any chance to be anything. Except, while the story proceeded in the way one would expect, I still wanted to watch it all. They depicted this story with brilliance and superb imagination. The humor is artfully displayed and has something for all ages. I absolutely loved this movie. I recommend it to everyone. TL/DR: It's better than Pixar. Watch it. Watch it now.
This review will be a little vague to prevent spoilers :) The story is based on a Chinese fairy tale about a cursed boy and spirit/demon pearl. The movie as a whole was very enjoyable and well made visually and in composition. I found the pacing very good and that the viewing was a consistently enjoyable experience. i would summarize the movie as a Wuxia action movie interwoven with great humor. Definitely a must see.
