When an herbalist falls for a 1000-year-old white snake masquerading as a woman and finds his life turned upside down, a sorcerer (Jet Li) must face treachery and deception in order to save his crumbling kingdom and the young man’s soul.
Regarding the action scenes, Jet Li said he had never been this exhausted before. Li says,
“After fighting the White Snake, fight the Green Snake. After fighting the Green Snake, then fight the Demon. After fighting this Demon, then fight another Demon. After fighting this Demon, then fight the Water Monster. Everyday on set I was letting out a big sigh.”
Raymond Lam said “I was always being hit by others, especially Ah Sa, she even requested for the director to add fight scenes. As a result, he added scenes to hit me! Furthermore she fought much more fiercely than before!”
