There are probably many adaptations of this story in various forms, but this is the first movie adaptation that I have picked up I think. Anyhow, I have only watched one drama adaptation previously so I can’t say I have watched this many times… Of course, being a movie, there will probably only be one big case to work on, and indeed it is the case.

The story is pretty straightforward, but I suppose this time the highlights would be some of the special effects put into the movie as well as the way of filming and directing with the various camera angles and style. At the same time, however, the inclusion of special effects due to some ‘superpowers’ that the characters possess made me feel that it is a different story from what I used to watch in the drama. I mean, being skilled in martial arts and all is one thing, but being able to read thoughts freely, powers of telekinesis to move, break or even manipulate multiple objects is just on a totally different level in my opinion. Haha.

The cast assembled this time features quite a number of familiar faces, from veteran ones to some newer faces. I wouldn’t say everyone did an awesome job, but some certainly did and made the differences among the different cast more obvious. Not going to mention particular names, but you should be able to tell when you watch this. With that said, there’s really not a lot that this movie stands out in, but I do like some of the presentation aspects though they do not take up a big part of the show. Overall I would say this movie is pretty average or perhaps even fall short of expectations if you look at the people involved in this project. Might be something for those who totally don’t know about these 4 characters though. Haha. My take: 6/10
