Had these sub-plots been spread out over multiple episodes of a TV series, they may have seen more life.
"White Haired Witch" is plagued with a copious cast and an overly complex storyline. Keeping track of everyone is difficult and the screenplay is laughably bad in spots, making it even less palatable.
The performances are stiff and uninspired, the storyline is trite, the awkward special effects stand out like a sore thumb, and everything is just so elongated that a couple of decent action scenes won't save an hour and a half of complete boredom.
With lame action, dull storytelling and a cast that look like they simply don't care, it's sub-par style over non-existent substance as The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom laboriously plods through its 104 minute running-time.
[a] kitsch-fu confection, with its overblown sentimentalism matched only by its tacky day-glo backgrounds... The action choreography, however, is imaginative and excellent.
With an incomprehensible plot and boring fight scenes there's not much to recommend when it comes to The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom.
The themes are dealt with rather hastily, however. The martial arts action also feels a little truncated. But it's the central relationship, the intense, transforming romantic encounter between warrior and witch, that is the least successful element.
