When I first watched it, I was thinking, ' gosh it's a waste of time" but then I watched it a second time and really learned how to appreciate the show. Everything fell nicely into place and although the first part does start off slow, it is not without reason. Because the movie gets more exciting as it delves into Zhao's past, contrasts with her present state. The actors all did a good job and the last part was the most exciting part. The ending was shocking, it totally caught me off guard and I nearly cried. In Goddess of Mercy,Zhao Wei give a professional & outstanding touch.TIME AISA said "With her elfin stature, Zhao couldn't intimidate a jaywalker, but her convincing portrayal confirms her status as one of China's best actresses." Overall, this is a movie which is tragic yet beautiful in a way. This is a movie which is to be savoured and enjoyed. It is definitely a movie I would recommend.
