“..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]
3.5 of 5

“..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]
