It has been nine years since it was first shown in China. Considering that this movie was quite popular in China, I am surprised that there are only TWO comments which is quite rare on here. I didn't plan to, but now I am compelled to write a comment.
I particularly like those three songs which were sang by popular singers from China, the melodies are very good, but the lyrics are more like for lovers, instead of a son towards his mother. I also like Peisi Chen's voice, he made the monkey king's character so much more fun. Since they have used some quite famous Chinese actors to dub the voices, so sometimes, I felt as if I am watching those actors performing, instead of the cartoon characters doing it.
The storyline is OK, it has some scenes which are a little confusing. They seemed to follow the typical Hollywood way, they picked a monkey to be the boy's companion, and the monkey sometimes make some funny, cute moves which are adorable.
China hasn't made any big budget animated films for a very long time, it doesn't have a lot of experienced artists as those in the US or Japan. Overall, it is a good production.
Now nine years have already passed, I don't think that China has made another successful animated film like this one. I wonder what they are doing now.
