    Fun because I expected it to be a b movie which it is! but fun nonetheless, a little long.

    This is a bit like a Tomb Raider and there are excitement in the movie and action. Graphics are not bad too. Just the poor China made dialogue which turns me off the movie. It's watchable

    I should have known from the twenty minutes of production logos and opening credits that this movie was in no hurry to get anywhere. A good twenty or thirty minutes could and should have been trimmed off this story of tomb raiders searching for a mystical relic. The sets were impressive and the CGI is slightly better than what we usually get from a Chinese movie. But the music and the hair (oh, that hair) are god-awful.

    2017-08-12 no English audio. Kind of confusing. Lots of implausible special effects

    If you enjoyed cheesy B-movies like Tomb Raider and Tremors, this will no disappoint. Knowing a bit of history and Chinese cultural mores will help you make sense of some of choices they make. But even without it, it's a fun movie to laugh along with and the hero has a cute wink. Pop the popcorn, grab a drink, and enjoy!

    Based solely on the conceptualization and execution of Vfx and Color Grade. Female character well established. Towards end - the movie does seem to get a little lengthy (formal way of saying boring.)

    The effects are good, it's all the stuff in between that sucks. At least 30 minutes too long -- much of it could have been edited out... especially everything with a whiney comic relief character. His name must translate to something like 'fingernails scraping against a chalkboard'. The music soundtrack is rather random, like pick-a-song, and-song. It becomes more appropriate in the scenes with special effects. Possibly inspired by the Indiana Jones franchise, if so it's a cheap knockoff. Have the TV remote handy, there's plenty to fast-forward through in "Mojin: The Lost Legend".

    Mojin: The Lost Legend is another example of style over substance. A trio of treasure hunters who have long since retired are coaxed back to a special tomb that holds emotional meaning for them by a sinister cult. They are after a special treasure called the Equinox Flower, but have to contend with being haunted by zombies, virus zombies, and giant demons and all sorts of visual effects stuff. Featuring very little characterization and a lot of noise, Mojin is somewhat entertaining but not very necessary, and easily one you can skip.
