Question: What do you get if you mash up Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers?
Answer: kicking a demon in the guts as they both plummet into the mouth of a lava-spewing volcano. Nice.
A new clip for The Sorceror and the White Snake has hit, but before you check it out, have some synopsis for your face:
Action director Ching Siu-Tung helms this fantasy film based on an old Chinese legend about an herbalist who falls in love with a thousand-year-old White Snake disguised as a woman. Jet Li stars as a sorcerer who discovers her true identity and battles to save the man's soul.
Now check out the clip:
Although it's quite CGI heavy there's no denying that it looks like a highly-stylized movie and the song that plays as they do battle in the volcano is awesome. Plus, Jet Li is pretty much kick-ass in everything he does, so this should be worth checking out.
The Sorcerer and the White Snake gets a limited theatrical release January 8.
