“While the snake cypress CGI is no great shakes, and chunks of the plot felt over-familiar, the fact this was still able to provide unexpected twists did keep me watching to the end. In Jing, the film has one of the few characters from these films that will genuinely stick in my mind. Usually, it’s the monsters that are the stars: here, we get a hero that’s just as much larger than life. Any time Jing is on screen, things seem to acquire additional energy.” Rating: B- Film Blitz
