A confusing mess of a story...
24 April 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Sometimes it is unwise to keep adding additional movies to an already established movie franchise, and "A Chinese Odyssey: Part Three" was one of those incidents. Where as the previous movies were quite entertaining and interesting, this third movie completely failed to deliver where it mattered.

The storyline in "A Chinese Odyssey: Part Three" was, and I am being bluntly honest here, a scrambled and confusing mess of whatever writer Jeffrey Lau was attempting to do with the storyline. It was non-coherent and just didn't make much of any kind of sense. It was this jumble of a storyline that ultimately brought the movie down beneath mediocrity, and it never recovered from this massive blow.

I initially sat down to watch "A Chinese Odyssey: Part Three" because of the previous movies, but also because Karen Mok starred in it. But not even she lifted up the movie as she was also struggling hard with the lack of coherent script and almost non-existing storyline.

The action in the movie was adequate and nicely enough choreographed, but it was hardly enough to sustain a whole movie with action sequences alone.

It should be said that the costumes and sets were quite nice, and were as to be expected of a movie of this particular genre. So that was at least working in favor of the movie.

"A Chinese Odyssey: Part Three" is the black sheep of the family; the movie that never should have been made.

As much as I enjoy the Asian cinema, then "A Chinese Odyssey: Part Three" was a bitter pill to swallow, and it offered next to nothing in terms of entertainment value, especially in comparison to its predecessors.
