L² Comment:
I never watched this movie in the cinema back in 2 years ago because everyone keep on told me its not worth to; after watching this movie yesterday, I finally agreed with everyone. Not only that the whole movie has twisted the original story of the fiction, it also sounds kinda ridiculous to me as well. No doubt the graphic and effect is welly done, but the story appeared to be empty and the most important is, this is not the Journey To The West that we have all known...
