Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons (2013)
It's time to kick some legendary tale
- Silly / light hearted.
- Fun, well done action scenes.
- Pretty passable CG.
- Actors do a great job of acting - even though I can't understand the language without reading.
- Actually netted some straight-up audible laughs from me.
- Need to read (some people really hate this).
- May feel bad laughing at some of the things after you realize what you just laughed at.
Worth a watch to anyone who saw the likes of Kung Fu Hustle and enjoyed it - indeed, it could be said that the two share quite a bit in common with each other. Well, except the demons thing. If you didn't enjoy KFH, then you'll most likely be best suited to avoid this one as well. Some parts can be a bit more annoying than others, but to say I didn't have fun would be a total lie. I'm just grateful I wasn't drinking anything during the "beach the demon" scene, else it would have come out my nose!
