One day a young woman named Blanca is saved by Xuan, a snake catcher from a nearby village. She has lost her memory, and together they go on a journey to discover her real identity, developing deeper feelings for one another along the way. But as they learn more about her past, they uncover a darker plot of supernatural forces vying for power, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Conceived as a prequel to one of the most ancient and enduring stories in Chinese history, White Snake presents a sumptuous tale of trickster demons, deadly mythical beasts, assassins, wuxia action, and the promise of eternal love.

Critic Reviews for White Snake

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7)

The film's landscape shots look breathtakingly real, but animated figures, especially during fight scenes, are tripped up by a dimension-flattening veneer that makes "White Snake" look more like an iPhone game.

There's not enough on-screen to make this listless time-waster worth recommending.

November 27, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A superior effort that should find enthusiastic audiences on our shores.

Even if you're not familiar with the source material, this Chinese production provides plenty of supernatural thrills for the modern young adult.

November 25, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"White Snake" leaves the viewer with the equivalent of a hangover from too many over-the-top visuals, rather than the satisfaction of seeing two star-crossed lovers achieve the happiness they deserve.

November 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Glistens as a finely cut and polished CG gem.
