Storyline

Tang Monk brings three disciples on a journey to the West. On the outside, everything seems harmonious. However, tension is present beneath the surface, and their hearts and minds are not in agreement. After a series of demon-capturing events, the monk and his disciples gain mutual understanding of each others' hardships and unease. Finally, they resolve their inner conflict and work together to become an all-conquering, demon-exorcising team.

I really want my ticket money back
2 February 2017 | by xmszerSee all my reviews

There is no doubt that this movie having very success in China, maybe will be the top one seller on this month. But,For my opinion , a good box office never equal to good movie, especially in China. Cause you never will know how important a actor can have their fans with money without brain. Their fans will never eject how their idol is never suit for acting. I tell the truth, no one laughed at the cinema instead of awarded. Even the children told to his mother to leave the sit because it really boring.A lot of people over-read about this movie, even the writer said "stop this, i never mean that".i don't think you made up a very analogical reason to say this movie is good is really good for the movie.
