Soul of Light

2023 / 75m - China
Fantasy, Action
Soul of Light poster

Yet another Chinese fox-themed fantasy. These Chinese streamer films are pretty samey, but even the themes and plot are becoming very difficult to differentiate. I'm pretty certain that 10 years from now I won't be able to distinguish between many of these films. They're fun and slick filler though, so I don't really mind that much.

A relic that is keeping demons at bay is split into two separate pieces and given to different clans to protect. When one of the pieces falls into the wrong hands, it is up to the other clan to guard the second piece with their lives. The Pure Fox clan is hidden pretty well from the outside world, even so, evil has its ways to get what it wants.

Soul of Light is nothing special, but these streamer films have reached a level of quality where even the basic ones are still pretty fun to watch. The pacing is slick, the runtime short, the fantasy elements are properly realized and there's a decent mix of genres to keep you entertained throughout. It may be mere "content" or "filler" to these services, but at least these films deliver. Proper fun.
