Not funny, not action-packed, just bad
After a cartoon introduction that went on faaaaaar too long, the cheesy beginning kind of announced that this would make Monkey Magic like like a Kurosawa masterpiece. Still, I gave it a chance.
15 minutes later, I simply couldn't do it any more - boring dialogue, slow pace, and an almost complete lack of action in a film that's supposed to be funny but never once made me even remotely amused me, meant that it just had to be turned off.
If anyone can actually sit through this, I'd award that person 5 stars, but for being an absolutely terrible piece of merde, I give it 1.
