This movie was definiely not up to my expectations. There was such a lot of hype about it and from the many trailers that I watched, I already had a, you know, a sort of opinion of what I was going to get from the movie and so you can say that I got a surprise. Which was no good.
A friend of mine who also watched this show said that the plot was moving too fast and he is right. I got confused at some point of the show. Before you know it, there is so much blasting up of stuff.
Some might say that the show is funny but it is not really.
This show has really good scenery. Halfway, when I was supposed to be concentrating on the show , I found myself saying, "Darn, that is a nice pic" which I am not that sure makes for a fantastic plot.
The good parts of the show is Charlene Choi's character MeiYan. The transformation n the end battle was really something so was her love for Tripitaka. It was very satisfying in that sense.Near the end, the scene in the Heavenly Court was good. There was a lot of effort put into this show and it shows. And the ending was really quite well done.
I am giving it 4 stars becoz it is really pretty good. If it helps, it is below Dragon Inn (actors: maggie Cheung, Tony Leung and Bridgitte Lin) but higher than Dragon Tiger Gate (donnie yen and another nic tse movie). For those wanting quite a good movie, this is it. Don't expect to be swept of your feet becoz this won't do it but the very well-done visual effects should really be appreciated. Don't expect too much. But for someone who is looking for a reasonably good movie, with a cantonese twist, this is it. Hope that helps.
