Synopsis

Now stranded five centuries into the past, Joker becomes reacquainted with the importance of the Longevity Monk’s journey to help suffering people, and finally agrees to become the Monkey King again and complete the journey to the west with his master.

Our take

Jeffrey Lau’s intrepid adaptation of the Monkey King tale concludes with this majestic finisher. Continuing to synthesize an array of genres to brilliant effect, the multi-hyphenate Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle) dazzles in this adventure of time traveling misfires, unexpected romance, and destiny.
