A Chinese Tall Story

My problem with this movies is... I have no interest to watch it at all. Then why did I watch it? My friend told me it was good... I guess I'm being fooled again by my friend and thanks ti her I now have something I don't really enjoyed in the list LOL. Well of coz it's not totally bad but I just don't enjoyed it... not my type of movie  I think...

 but here the review and yes not written by me ^^

A connection with other galaxies even before "Star Wars" came into being: a love story that is out of this world. Tang monk TRIPITAKA (Nicholas Tse) and his three disciples – Monkey King SUN WUKONG (Chen Bo-Lin), Pig monk ZHU WUNEG (Kenny Kwan), and Sand monk SHA WUJING (Steven Cheung) arrive triumphantly to a hero's welcome in Shache city. Little do they know that ahead of them lays Tripitaka's most arduous challenge before he achieves deification…and it is a test that he and only he alone can overcome.

During their stay in the city, the three disciples are captured by the evil Tree Spirits. Tripitaka borrows the Golden Pole and tries to find a way to save them. He meets a young lizard imp MEIYAN (Charlene Choi) who is more than a visual match for Quasimodo: matted bushy hair, and the teeth of any dentist's nightmare. Meiyan falls in love with Tripitaka at first site and devotes herself to trailing him, She even sets a love trap to ensnare him. Tripitaka unwittingly falls into falls into the trap and, in the process breaks the Heavenly Code.

The region is one full of monsters, strange beings and creatures of unknown origins and among them are (the beautiful PRINCESS XIAOSHA (Fan Bing Bing) and her army. On a passing journey to Earth, her path crosses Tripitaka's and she vows her aid. Tripitaka decides to leave with the Princess.

Meiyan is heartbroken. She picks a fight with Princess Xiaoshan and, although she loses, she finally discovers her own identity as a galactic warrior, She eventually helps the Princess in defeating the enemy and rescues Tripitaka and his disciples.

After the battle, Meiyan surrenders to the Temple of Heaven for judgment. Torn between passion and righteousness, Tripitaka rebels against the heavens to rescue the gallows-bound Meiyan. A benevolent Buddha is moved and pardons the two, on condition that they embark on a journey to the west to accomplish the Eighty-One Tasks to redeem themselves as well as to save the world.
