Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons

Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer) wrote and directed this crazed martial arts fantasy, the biggest-grossing film in China for 2013. It's a prequel of sorts to the classic myth of the Monkey King's journey to India. Prior to his legendary adventures with the Monkey King, young Buddhist monk Tang Sanzang (a.k.a. Xuan Zang, a.k.a. Tripitaka) is a naive spiritualist trying to protect a small village from three determined demons. He gets help (and a whole lot of trouble) in the form of a tough, sexy female demon hunter. Zhang Wen (The Guillotines, The Emperor and the White Snake) and Qi Shu (The Transporter, Tai Chi Hero) star. 110 minutes PG-13.
