Since right after The Great Magician Movie which screen up on last year, Painted Skin II is one of the must watch Chinese Movie on the Big Screen. I was impress with the story line of this movie and everything in this movie seems to be fine and some extraordinary effect will appear in some special scene.
Zhou Xun as the Fox (which is same as previous Painted Skin I character), was a very saddening character because she save human in 500years ago and break the laws of evil, so she need to imprison into super cold place and never to be freed. Even thou she is free in this movie, she always get hunted by cold chill to capture her and back to her prison.
Zhao Wei as the Princess, the person who got a heart to win against cold chill and in love with a warrior who always hide from her. She got scar on her right face because got assaulted by a super wild bear and she got a mindset that "guy always judge girl by how she looks first".
Chen Kun as the Warrior, he is a humble warrior and he thinks that he doesn't deserve to love Princess. And he is a person who is very easy Metamorphosis himself to become another person, maybe because he got too much posses power from the Fox.
Yang Mi as the Bird and Feng Shaofeng as the Taoist who is selling Medicine on the street market. I think Yang Mi looks very cute in this movie, and the Taoist got some special power too!
Fei Xiang as the Wizard (more to Necromancer perhaps), [Spoiler] this person is trying to resurrect the prince who got taken his heart away from the Bird. And I can't believe that Fei Xiang is really cool in Necromancer outfit! LOL!
This picture is not the main reason for watching this movie.
My overall rating would be 6.5/10, you should watch the process when both of them exchange each other skin. The best part of this movie is Zhao Wei and Zhou Xun exchange skin while they in bath right? They need to exchange character too! Some part from this movie got censored. The story-line of this movie was good, but the effect for some scene is kind of extraordinary. And compare with the first movie of Painted Skin, Painted Skin 2 was good! If there is no censorship, I would love to watch it on the big screen for second time. I am sorry if there is too much spoiler appear in this post!
