Enjoyable Movie
19 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I thought it was going to be a stupid, boring, fantasy flick, that would make no sense. Like Hurricane Sword. When I saw it had Monkey King in it, I realized what it was. I knew Monkey was a Staff Master, and had seen Beijing Opera perform it. That actor was Phenomenal!!! So, this movie, for 1967, was really good. A little ways into it, it reminded me of a Disney Musical, like Babes in Toyland, especially the stage sets, singing and dancing, and humor. All well done. The movie moves right along. Martial Arts scenes are OK.

Some special effects are just camera cuts, and some are super imposed, but some are really ahead of their time in 1967. The copy I saw was clear, and looked like it was filmed last week!!

All-in-all, an enjoyable movie with lots of different things, although I would NOT LET THE KIDS WATCH IT! It has some sexual situations, and adult language shall we say. So, it is PG-13.
