The 2nd film Jackie Chan has been attached to with ties to the Legend of the Monkey King. The first was "The Forbidden Kingdom", where fellow martial artist/actor Jet Li played the Monkey King. See more »
In the animation image design, the film didn't use children's characters for leading roles, like Monkey King, make the characters more mature.The image of Monkey King and Pig Zhu Bajie are all adult who have a background of adult socialization, which is beneficial to the depth of the hero image, rather than the superficial adventures.
It is very distinctive that Villain the leading monster's face design for Sichuan Opera Face, and the leading monster's body feels elegant in the sky, I would like give him a name of "the beauty of evil".But after he become a big worm, disgusting, and the modeling of the worm, feel copying the image of the other films.
2, Technical level greatly ascend.
The mouth moving is more realistic;The background picture more rich layered.
1, The plot is weak.Writers had neither according to the novel, nor made innovation. The screenplay is only designed some abused poking fun which amused the audience once or twice. Even more worse, the focus is not prominent that the Monkey King turned into a hero of justice, slightly weak, it is not enough to convince me.
2, Poor continuity in action.Action before and after in a few action scene is not smooth, give me a feeling of unknown cause and effect.
3, Insert abrupt improper music.When the Monkey King, Pig Zhu Bajie, and Liu went alliance, background music style suddenly turned from the traditional Chinese opera into rock & roll, it appeared not harmonious.
