I really liked Stephen Chow's action comedy kung fun films, "Kung Fu Hustle" and "Shaolin Soccer," but he's been relatively quiet since the success of those films. I don't even remember seeing this come out in the theater. Like his previous films, it mixes high flying kung fu action with Looney Tunes style physical comedy. This embraces more of a fantasy element and is a little too reliant on CGI monsters (Pig demons! Monkey kings! Fish demons!). Chow co-directed and co-wrote, but doesn't star. I enjoyed it, but it's not up to his earlier work. You might also like "Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain" and "Green Snake."
