    ★★★

    I don't usually start with the second movie in a series but this one looked way more appealing than the first one did.
    But yeah it's a fun movie, I really liked the whole gang in this one.
    There's a pretty cool fight with an army of CGI skeletons which leads to a big battle with a giant final boss monster skeleton that is also made out of skeletons--that was neat.

    Also I've been watching a lot of the 1986 Journey to the West TV show so it was pretty wild to hear the theme song at the end of the movie.

    ★★★

    Tang Sanzang is supposed to be a bit of an asshole in this one but without Wen Zhang in the role he's just straight up unlikable--I really hated that guy. The rest of the group is pretty good and clicked very well. I especially liked Wukong, it might be one of my favorite portrayals of the character so far and his CGI demon monkey face was pretty tight.

    Overall not a bad movie but could've been a lot better with Stephen Chow in charge.

    I don't agree with people who put this in the "so bad it's good" category. This movie is GREAT. Like if you watch it dubbed, then yeah the dub is pretty terrible and hilarious (especially with the subtitles turned on), but the movie itself is amazing -- YEAH even the part when Ricky is running around in a sweater giggling and playing with his RC copters.

    Where else are you going to see a man try to kill another man…

    3rd time watching this and it's still amazing.
    Lam Nai-choi knows exactly what I want to see in a movie; gross, meaty, blobs of tentacles and slime ripping people's arms off and growing heads. One of the best movies I've ever seen.
