Movie Review: Mojin: The Lost Legend (PG13)
Think of this as Tomb Raider, Chinese style.
Focusing on a secret society of grave robbers known as Mojin, this cheesy action fantasy takes viewers on a ride through booby-trapped graves and treasure chambers, complete with zombies and a mysterious cult.
Mojin trio Hu Bayi (Chen Kun), Wang Kaixuan (Huang Bo) and Shirley Yang (Shu Qi) come out of retirement in 1980s New York for one last job in Inner Mongolia.
But a figure from Hu and Wang's Cultural Revolution past, Ding Sitian (Angelababy), continues to haunt them.
What the movie lacks in plot development, it makes up for in spectacle.
It's an epic adventure rife with puzzles, even if its inclusion of Cultural Revolution details in the plot seems bizarre.
