In order to atone for their own sins and save the common people, the four of them embark on a journey to the West that's full of challenges...

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..read up on the Monkey King and 'Journey to the West' if you're not familiar with the story, it'll come in handy when you watch the film. If you've always been a fan of Chow Sing-chi, don't miss this one..”
by Jean Goon [MSN International]
“..an enjoyable journey but it doesn't have a clear destination..”
by Andrew Sun [South China Morning Post]
“..surprisingly not the spotlight-hogging Monkey King - whose ironically unimpressive image is unveiled at the movie's final showdown as an awkwardly hilarious sight gag..”
by Edmund Lee [Screen International]
