Stephen Chow’s ‘Journey to the West’ Mythology and Martial Arts Film Series
If you like multi-talented actor/ writer/ producer/ director and Bruce Lee fan Stephen Chow’s films, particularly his 2nd and third “live comic book” productions “Shaolin Soccer” and “Kung Fu Hustle,” you might enjoy two of his latest, “Journey to the West” and “Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back.” While I have not seen the former yet, the latter was an entertaining mix of live action and CGI, combining Chinese mythology with a hint of Indian mythology, as well as a mix of comedy, drama and martial arts action, with literally larger than life characters — at least in film. Colorful and entertaining. With English subtitles.
The trailers for the first film in the series is above, and the latest one is below.
