THE SHORT VERDICT:
A gorgeously shot, epic love story that works out to be wonderfully addictive and immersive.
The entire cast is pretty great, but it’s really our leads Wu Lei and Zhao Lu Si who ground this one for me, with their nuanced portrayals of their characters, and their fantastic shared chemistry.
Show isn’t perfect, and there are some rough edges in the presented narrative, but it’s nothing some lens adjustments can’t fix (I talk more about that in a bit).
Importantly, Show knows how to serve up the romance, and make me swoon into a flailing puddle on a regular basis, and I consider that to be Show’s biggest strength. 😁
Absolutely recommend, especially if you enjoy a dose of swoony romance. ❤️
