Tang Monk brings three disciples on a journey to the West. On the outside, everything seems harmonious. However, tension is present beneath the surface, and their hearts and minds are not in agreement. After a series of demon-capturing events, the monk and his disciples gain mutual understanding of each others' hardships and unease. Finally, they resolve their inner conflict and work together to become an all-conquering, demon-exorcising team.

I have been looking forward to this movie for years because I'm a huge fan of both Stephen Chow and Tsui Hark and it didn't disappoint! The nonsensical comedy is very Stephen Chow and the plot is engaging, my friends and I spent the whole time laughing. No one can write a good comedic sequence like Stephen Chow. Tsui Hark's half of the contribution can be seen in the special effects and action, the effects are pretty good although not perfect. The cinematography for this is amazing, there were a lot of beautiful shots.

I wanted the original cast from the first movie to return but the new cast didn't disappoint. The monk in particularly was very funny.

I rate this a 10 because it's everything I wanted from both of them. It certainly delivered!
