This is pretty old movie and maybe not everyone's cup of tea. I have mixed feelings about it. The story was pretty good and the movie surely made me laugh a lot. Whether it was the Joker's funny tactics or the-lady-with-the-tattoo's immense bullying, it was funny. The only problem for me were the special-effects. They were really ugly but you can't really do anything about it because the movie is old and there wasn't too much progress in the special-effects scene back when this movie came it. Apart from that it was nice one-time watch. Not for those looking for romance though..

If your a fan of Stephen Chow, then this classical movie won't disappoint you. This movie is loosely based on a classical novel published in the 16th century, known as The Journey to the West. Although this was made back in the 90's, its special effects and props may not be that great. I have to say, this movie is better than the second sequel. Furthermore, this movie is basically making fun of itself like all of Chow's movies before and after it. I can't say this is everyone's cup of tea. However it's always good to keep an open mind!
