One day, Bu Tong’s mentor, Kong, is struck by lightning and realises that he is the reincarnation of Crouching Tiger Arhat, who came to the human world to give guidance to Bu Tong.

An oversized and  underdeveloped dramatic fantasy folklore film with an origin story of a  Buddhist monk who believes he possesses supernatural powers that he  used to help the poor and face injustice, which make "The Golden Monk" a  tale of origin, with a cliché novel and the comedy  slapstick with a terrible effect ... Ah, yes, it's not funny or  romantic, finding itself instead as a classic case of a toxic  combination of bad scripts, terrible and malicious direction with CGI bombastically stylish. It's  as bad as the worst of them exacerbated because it was suggested to be a  kind of epic when it's anything but an epic failure.
