Worth watching
6 August 2017 | by zl-97558See all my reviews

I haven't watched the entire movie, but only trailers on Youtube. I was deeply impressed by the story and the effect was fantastic, and I almost cried. Based on the review from my friends who already watched it in China, it is quite good, not only the performance of actors and actresses, but also the effect and music. I know that the novel based on which the movie was made was accused of plagiarism, however I don't think it is the movie's fault because at that time the movie already finished shooting. According to my knowledge, the movie has deleted all the plots relevant to plagiarism and tells a different and better story now. I am OK with people not go to see the movie if they are anti-plagiarism, but it seems quite irresponsible to rate the movie low, since now the movie and the novel are completely different and independent. Actually, you should go to rate the novel which is still on sell. The movie team spent around 3 years on making the movie and it is worth watching. Every effort deserves respect.

My friend told me that when you watch the movie for the first time, you might get a little lost since the rhythm is fast. But if you do the second time you will find yourself completely understand the plots and they are very logical.

Anyway, this is only my opinion. I wish more people can go to see the movie and give more objective reviews. I am looking forward to seeing the movie.

I went to watch the movie twice today, it was really touching. The first time when I was watching, I felt the plots jumped a little fast at the beginning. However, as the story moved on, the emotion went so smoothly that I found myself in tears unconsciously. Then I gave it a second try, and this time the plots seemed much more coherent (probably because I already knew the story?) and I still couldn't control my tears. The love story is classic and euphemistic. The most important, I really like the ending as it completed the story and explained reincarnation---the core of the movie . For me, it is as good as the ending of La La Land.

Finally, big applause for music and visual effect, big applause for the director and all actors and actresses, and all the people that worked together for such a beautiful movie. Once again, it is worth watching.
