A royal descendant of an ancient winged tribe embarks on a quest to find magical pearls. When they fall into the hands of a human, he joins a team of unlikely heroes in a race against time to prevent the destruction of his people.
The land of fantasy can be an amazing place. Imagine a place that allows you to become whatever you wish. Those that wish to swim can travel the oceans while those that wish to fly can cruise the skies. Your memories can become reality, even your dreams can become your future. The land of fantasy is an enchanting place.
“Legend of the Naga Pearls” is an amazing fantasy. Ni Kongkong (Darren Wang) is a self-proclaimed robber. Well “King of Robbers” if he were to tell it. As a thief, he journeys throughout the land, living and causing chaos if the opportunity presents itself. Ni Kongkong is an orphan and was bullied as a child for being different from the other kids. They all live in the land of Uranopolis after the great war between the humans and the winged tribe and this is where the story begins to take its shape.
The tone of this film is comical. However, the subject matter is serious. It touches on the history of the humans and the winged tribe. Parts of the film feel heavy with historical importance but the characters are easily lovable. They engage flawlessly with each other throughout the movie.
The graphics are amazing. The music feels like a kingdom as the royal soundtrack accompanies the environment. Characters are easy to remember and introduced in a modest way. The action is jaw-dropping and while the suspense is hit or miss, the drama is non-stop from beginning to end.
I really liked this film. Some of the characters were creepy but many of the fighting scenes were intense. Overall, the movie makes its way home at the end. The storyline is complete and makes sense considering the subject matter. Viewers will find themselves laughing at “Legend of the Naga Pearls” and those same viewers might even shed a tear. That’s what makes stories legendary.
