Sometimes you need to forget what you like and rate a thing on it’s own virtues rather than what you want it to be. The Myth is like that.
Seems like a good idea and one that could show Chinese history as a living thing, full and still around, like the Romans. However, the execution and script are rubbish.
Every so often there is a fisheye lens used for no reason, sometimes a wacky soft focus edge to the film creeps in and a lot of the time the camera wobbles, not through some film-school effect but because it needs to slide, slowly into the required position. No budget or retakes?
Then there’s the prelonged sentimental bits with long, tearful looks off camera. That fast forward button never looked so enticing.
