An imperial guard and his three traitorous childhood friends ordered to hunt him down get accidentally buried and kept frozen in time. 400 years later passes and they are defrosted continuing the battle they left behind.
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.
