Steven Oxman Variety MacDonald and editor Colin Green do their best to make all this coherent, but it's a struggle. Oct 19, 2018 Full Review John Leonard New York Magazine/Vulture Any mini-series that begins in the underground chamber of the ancient Chinese terra-cotta warriors is okay by me.

Audience Member I caught this one night on the sci-fi channel, I had an interest in buddhism and the story of the Monkey King. It wasn't great but it was decent. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member 2 hr 13 min? the one we recorded from Syfy (same cast) was 4 hrs. definitely could have been shortened. pretty Americanized, but not bad. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member One of my fav. movies of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member I very much enjoyed this film. I haven't had much background as far as the "Monkey King", other than the Japanese series when it was being broadcast in the U.K. (Under the appropriate title "Monkey"). Still, I kind of was aware of the characters, and liked their appearance in this flick. One thing I didn't care for was the length, which was no doubt easier to handle during it's television broadcast. Also, towards the end shortly after the scene shifts to the modern day. I think if you give it a chance, you'd like this. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Extremely well made, featuring an all star cast. The plot twisted so intreguingly and the fight scenes were spectacular. By far best movie of 2001 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member classic chinese story, has fantasy and martial arts adventure. good for kids to see. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
