Chow Sing Chi has delivered his unique sense of humor
This is one of the finest Chow Sing Chi has made so far. Ng Man Tat is not the first time to act as a supporting character as he has done quite a few before this one. These two comedy actors can promise a lot of laughters they are perfect pairs, making no exception for this movie. Special effect is something i don't expect too much or have any comparison with Hollywood, but in generally speaking i can accept it. Every Chinese should have learned about who monkey king is, or what he has achieved during the journey to the west, or Chinese odyssey. Director Jeffrey Lau makes a new point of view that leads the viewers in a mysterious way n that's a challenge, it comes out so well with those weird dreams the joker (Chow Sing Chi) has been having them from time to time. A romance involved with Karen Mok generates a lot of funs and refer to what happens later that the joker does undergo a struggle whether give up all he has and take the Holly Quest, leaving all the memories behind, unfortunately includes the relationship with his beloved Karen Mok. In the process Chow Sing Chi has delivered his unique sense of humor, which we refer it "a sense of nonsense humor" that becomes part of our culture in Hong Kong, and i am glad to see that. If you want to see a movie that makes you laugh and relax a bit, this one is a good choice.
