Him Law As Sha Wujing
His blue skin and macho look is still eye-catching, but his inner world is totally a different case: he is good with fighting but has a mild heart. This time he will not only carry forward Wujing’s honest and upright character but also show the audience a new color Sha Wujing.
William Feng As Xuanzang, Tang Priest
Combining all kinds of characters, witty, stupid, cute, funny, selfless and merciful, which won the audience's affection. This time he will carry forward all these characters in the Womanland. Besides his funny side, there will also be a formidable obstacle of romance for him to overcome.
Xiaoshenyang As Bajie
Often emphasizing ‘I am a pet’, the adorable Bajie, has become a family joy and children’s favorite. This time, Bajie will still be in charge of being funny.
Aaron Kwok As Sun Wukong, The Monkey King
Kwok plays the Monkey King once again in his third participation in this franchise. After the adventure in the last installment, Wukong and Xuanzang is getting closer in relationship similar to brothers. This time the Monkey feels more relaxed. Apart from fighting against the River God.
The third installment of the blockbuster fantasy series sees the return of the Monkey King (Aaron Kwok) in his most action-packed adventure yet! While continuing their epic journey to the West, the Monkey King and his companions are taken captive by the Queen of an all-female land, who believes them to be part of an ancient prophecy heralding the fall of her kingdom. With a lot of sorcery and a little bit of charm, the travelers devise a plan to escape. But when their trickery angers the mighty River God, they realize they might just bring about the foretold destruction - unless they can find a way to quell her wrath.

This one caught me off guard. It's pretty romantic which kind of throws a size-changing, galaxy-leveling staff into the the gear-working set-up by the first two movies. It wasn't that I disliked taking this part of the journey with the team, but it definitely wasn't what I was expecting and hope to find the 4th movie of the series more like the first two.
I guess the best way to put it is that this is more of Monkey King date-movie in the same way that (the much criticized but very fun) Alakazam the Great is a date-movie.
Top international reviews
They picked a bad plot; the romance goes nowhere (because it really can't go anywhere, given that Tripitaka is on a mission to Save The World) and there is little to no chemistry between the two leads - it comes across as an unrealistic crush on both their parts (understandable for the queen as he is literally the first man she has ever seen) but it's not at all convincing as a genuine love story.
Monkey is at his best when battling demons and conniving tricky schemes, but he gets little of that to do here, and is mainly a third wheel for the soppy romantic story. The comedy elements aren't well integrated into the overall flow of the movie, and really the entire thing would have worked better as a B-plot or introductory episode to a different plot. The ending hints that a possible sequel could be the Princess Iron Fan story, which would frankly have worked much better here as there is a lot more action and schemes and counter-schemes in that episode.
Also, the ending of the second movie is never accounted for - we just get them all back on their journey travelling downriver, with nothing about SO HOW IS TRIPITAKA NOT A STATUE ANYMORE? To sum up: I regret that I can't recommend this, only watch it if you really are a completist, and wait for the next movie (if there is one) or re-watch the second one instead.
Hope For More Love the Monky
