terrible terrible version
17 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A much anticipated miniseries from HK, this turned out to be a huge embarrassment and cheesy attempted remake of Xi You Gi, the Journey To the West, a novel which as been wonderfully remade with the original mandarin version decades ago. First off, it is completely inaccurate. The Monkey King befriends people he's supposed to be enemies with, stuff is out of chronological order, and it's filled with HK teenybopper pop stars in roles that didn't even exist in the book. The fight scenes look exceedingly cheesy, and the special effects used can be seen in any other HK miniseries of the sort. Dicky Cheng is one of my favorite comedy actors in HK, but the whole inaccuracy of this miniseries really got to me. I would recommend Shao Nian Zhang San Feng if you want to see a genuinely funny HK miniseries. Don't waste your money on this unless you are some obsessed fan of Twins.
