In the northwest desert where countless prosperous dynasties have flourish and fall, there is rumor of a treasure of unbelievable riches buried among it. A group of mysterious guardian have been guarding the map to the location of the treasure until a fierce rivalry erupted. A notorious international crime group, The Company hunted down the map keeper and before they managed to secure the map, the keeper passed the map to a young chivalrous man Ciao Fei (Jay Chou).

Ciao Fei was forced to give up the map to save the live of his mentors daughter Lan Ting (Lin Chi Ling),. Teaming up with Hua Ding Bang (a famous archeologist) and Lan Ting they embark on a dangerous journey to recover the map and fight to protect the ancient treasure.

To start with, this movie seem to lack of continuity, it was a bit choppy. Everything happen so sudden and end so sudden. This movie also lack of clear message.

Just a simple treasure hunt story with usual ending and predictable.

At the start of the movie I thought this was another story telling movie like Jet Li's Adventure King, but luckily it wasn't.
I think this movie will be disaster without both Jay and Lin as lead actor actress. Because the storyline look a bit boring.

On the other end, both lead also lack of chemistry or maybe it was cause by poor editing.
After watching the movie the you might feeling lost with a lot of question pop up regarding the movie due to the many loose end.

On the plus side, you can heard one of his new song in this movie (Sing by Ch-Ling). The sense of humor and joke between Jay and Lin and also the role of Eric Tsang that always crack a joke whenever he appears, which are quite entertaining and funny. That always drew a burst of laughter from cinema goer.
You can also see Jay in a lot of action in his fighting scene which is not usual him in his MV with the exception of Curse of the Golden Flower.
As a Jay Chou fans, you not gonna miss this movie as to compensate the fact that Jay didn't release any album this year.

Overall this is not a serious movie, so don't put your expectation so high, just watch it and enjoy the fun.
I think most likely the target audience for this movie are western.

Final Verdict 2/5 +1/5 Due to Jay and Lin appearance.=3/5
