More IQiyi genre fluff. Keep your expectations realistic, and their back catalog offers an incredible wealth of genre films. Reincarnation Land is another one of their action/fantasy hybrids, a continuation of the 90s Hong Kong films that topped the genre. Not quite up there with the best, but if you're looking for some fast-paced entertainment, this one delivers.

A young girl is looking for her master, who disappeared one year ago. She enters a local competition that will grant her one question to the Ghost King. He shows her that her master is currently stuck in hellfire. Hoping to get another wish granted from the Ghost King, she helps him out with some odd chores.

The CG is subpar, though that's only a real issue at the very start of the film. The sets look pretty nice, the action is fast-paced, the fantasy elements are properly executed, performances are amusing, and the plot is fun enough. It's nothing you haven't seen before, but the short runtime and skillful execution turn this into tasty filler.
