A nice story
Verified purchase
In the best traditions of kung fu movies this story is given a modern twist, and is the perfect canvas to watch two masters show their skill.

Jackie Chan and Jet Li in a classic team up
Verified purchase
Loving this Blu-ray and all of the extras. Two of kung-fu's best actors team up in an action packed retelling of the story of the Monkey King (with a twist). Beautiful visuals and a very creative script. Brilliantly innovative.

I'm not a martial arts film buff but did love Bruce lee films and Monkey back in the day. I really enjoyed this film, it had a great balance between old and modern film techniques. Loved the classic underdog hero on a journey story too. A really satisfying ending. I wonder if there has been a deserved sequel?

Wacky Time Wating Activity

This was a wacky-time-wasting activity I was looking for, I thouroughly enjoyed it :) A classic martial arts movie, not as funny as most Jackie Chan movies though.

Chan and Li....what more do you want?
Verified purchase
This is a throwback to the classic martial arts films of the 70's and 80's, but with a bit of a modern hit. Chan and Li are brilliant and play characters that made them the stars they are back in the day. If you are expecting a flashy film with loads of flashy effects you'll be disappointed. The fight scenes hark back to a past era and are a joy to watch, with choreography that is a pleasure to see in today's "Matrix" styled films.
A great film to watch.
