  • msmichel's rating of the film Wu Kong

    'The Monkey King' legend/fable is a mainstay of Chinese culture and has filled volumes in literature and has led to some memorable films along the years. This will not be one of them. Another miscast for Eddie Peng sinks this picture despite a strong effects budget along with a poorly told tale. Derek Kwok (Pye Dog, Gallants) showed a lot of promise in his early career but seems wasted here in this generic take.
