  1. HKFanatic's rating of the film The Monkey King: The Legend Begins

    "The Monkey King 2" registers as an improvement over its previous installment in that it feels more like an actual film - with practical sets, costumes, and prosthetic make-up - than one long computer-generated cutscene still being rendered by a score of FX houses. A luminous Gong Li is granted plenty of screentime as the film's central villain and lends a much needed dose of movie star charisma to proceedings.
