Trivia

It took more than five hours for Aaron Kwok and Him Law to wear and take off their makeups, and most cast members suffered from the special effects makeup. Shaofeng Feng, who played Tangsanzang, was envied by other actors because his role took the least efforts to prepare. However, he fell from his horse in the beginning of film shooting. While doctors recommended that Feng rest for two months, he came back in two weeks. See more »

The Monkey King Havoc in Heaven's Palace was our first choice.
7 July 2016 | by gregsachoffSee all my reviews

Love the movie. Thought it was entertaining and my kids wanted to see it again. But we all agree Donnie Yen was a better choice for The Monkey King / Sun Wu Kong The Monkey King Havoc in Heaven's Palace was our first choice and favorite among the two so far. Havoc in Heaven's Palace seem to have more story structure and the kids liked the characters better and loved the historical fight scenes with Donnie Yen's Character. My wife seemed to like the most the musical score of the film and we purchased the soundtrack in which we listen to quite often.

My Kids also each wanted there own Blu-Ray in which I purchased for all three of them. With anything the first is always the better of the two but recommend both.
