fairly average Chinese blockbuster
17 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A fairly ordinary animated film. Nonetheless when it was released in 1999 it was the most popular film in China for that year. I can only assume that its popularity was due to the local audience having the opportunity to see a familiar story from their own culture rather than another just another Disney/Pixar offering rehashing the same tired old story again. A great example that all marginalised local film industries should take note of.

the story follows a young boy, the son of a Goddess, who embarks on a journey to free his mother from captivity.

Along the way he encounters a veritable cavalcade of characters from Chinese mythology as he searches for the Monkey King.

Might be of fleeting interest to fans of the 80s TV series 'Monkey', but otherwise only for those who are particularly interested in Chinese mythology or are very bored.
