|Feng Shaofeng as Kasuo in Ice Fantasy Photo: CFP Considering the long white hair and pointy "elf ears Rush Rob Havenstein Jersey ," no one would blame you for thinking that Lee Pace's Thranduil from The Hobbit films had somehow become the main character of the new Chinese series Ice Fantasy. While the icy and snowy environment looks like something out of Game of Thrones.
However, the Asian faces underneath all the Western-fantasy-style makeup are a reminder that this is made in China.
Yet, with the strong resemblance to its Western counterparts, it's hard to see this series as anything more than a cheap Hollywood knock-off.
Ice Fantasy is adapted from Chinese writer Guo Jingming's novel of the same name. Before its debut on Hunan TV and several streaming platforms on July 24, the show was getting quite a bit of buzz since Ice Fantasy was the novel that brought Guo Rush Tyler Higbee Jersey , now one of China's highest earning writers, into the spotlight back in 2003. Guo, also the director behind the highly lucrative Tiny Times film franchise, is also directing the show.
"We aim to create something like A Song of Ice and Fire," said Feng Shaofeng Rush Jared Goff Jersey , the show's lead actor and also a producer, previously told media.
This ambition has apparently been matched by an equally ambitious budget. According to marketing for the show, more than 360 million yuan ($54 million) was spent on the show's special effects, with the aim to bring the Chinese TV industry to a brand new level.
However, audiences who have seen the show are wondering just where all that money went Rush Samson Ebukam Jersey , as the special effects don't seem to be living up to the hype.
Besides the fact that the long white hair and crown on his head makes Feng's character look like a cheaper version of Thranduil, many of the show's mythical creatures have ended up looking cheaply made.
The show's live action actors also don't seem to be very well integrated with the CGI backgrounds used in various scenes either. In a way the production has ended up looking more like a video game than a TV show.
Cheap special effects are not the only criticism aimed at the show. Poor acting and lame storylines have also contributed to poor reviews from critics and audiences.
Currently the show has one and a half stars out of five on Chinese media site Douban, with 76.8 percent of users giving it one star.
"A rustic niche farce. Oriental faces playing Western fantasy characters. It's really stupid," reads one highly liked comment on Douban.
Many users have commented that Ice Fantasy seems more like a cosplay show than a TV show.
Despite the low ratings, the show does still have some fans Rush Josh Reynolds Jersey , who feel that it's already a big improvement over most domestic TV series.
According the promotional material for the show, Ice Fantasy brought in visual effects artist Jacques Stroweis, who was previously involved in Ghost Rider, as VFX supervisor.
International visual effects companies Pixomondo and Primefocus were also involved in the post-production.
Not the first copycat
Rising to fame while still in his teens, the now 33-year-old Guo is one of the richest writers and filmmakers in China. With his novels influencing an entire generation Rush John Johnson Jersey , he has become a role model for many young Chinese. However, he has also often been surrounded by controversy, as many claim that several of his more famous works had plagiarized others.
Criticism of Guo has risen to a whole new level since he became a director. His Tiny Times series of films, which were adapted from his novels, were huge commercial hits Rush Cooper Kupp Jersey , but were critically panned by reviewers.
Ice Fantasy is not the first to be accused of being a cheap knock-off.
Audiences pointed out that many CGI scenes in the hit 2015 Chinese TV series The Journey of Flowers also plagiarized Hollywood movies.
Scenes featuring rivers, mountains and clouds were highly reminiscent of the film Maleficent, blood dripping on the ground covered by snow were similar to Snow White and the Huntsman and some caves looked like the homes of the Hobbits from The Hobbit.
In recent years, Chinese TV and filmmakers have been working hard to bring their works to the level of Hollywood by bringing in visual effects studios and visual effects artists from overseas. But it seems that they still have a long way to go when it comes to quality and originality.
When mentioning Jackie Chan, you may instantly think of characters who clown around while performing acrobatic kung fu moves Rush Gerald Everett Jersey , but the upcoming thriller The Foreigner sees Chan play a very different character: A grey-haired and bitter old man seeking revenge.
Adapted from Stephen Leather's novel The Chinaman, The Foreigner follows Quan (Chan), a London restaurant owner, as he tries to find the culprit behind the terrorist bomb attack that killed his daughter. While Quan's past identity as a killer for the Viet Cong and Americans in Vietnam is revealed during his search, as is the secret background of a British government official played by Pierce Brosnan.
Set for a release in the Chinese mainland on September 30 and the US on October 13 Rush Todd Gurley II Jersey , the film's director Martin Campbell, known for two James Bond films and the Last Resort TV drama, sat down with the Global Times in Beijing to discuss the film.
Barriers to going overseas
It has been six years since Campbell's last film Green Lantern hit theaters. What brought the 73-year-old filmmaker back behind the camera was how the script interested him.
"[It] attracted me first," Campbell told the Global Times. "First of all it was a good story. All great characters… There's a whole political-back story to Pierce [Brosnan] that is really interesting. So, much more complex than the average thriller. So really that was why I did it."
Throughout the interview Campbell didn't hide his admiration of Chan Women's Jamon Brown Jersey , nor did he hesitate to po. http://wholesaleauthenticjerseysnba.com/ http://cheapauthenticjerseysnba.com/ Cheap College Jerseys From China Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Wholesale Authentic MLB Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NHL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap College Baseball Jerseys
