Audience Reviews for Ching din dai sing (A Chinese Tall Story)

The some parts of the movie is mixed from Chinese classical novels and literature, so it might be a bit confusing (or even absolutely nonsensical) for those who dont know about it.

Xuanzang (in the story he is called as Tripitaka), is a budhist monk that is on a pilgrimage to india, to obtain Bhuddist religious texts called Sutras. He is accompanied by 3 protectors during his journey, namely Sun Wukong (the Monkey King), Zhu Bajie (the Pig Monk), and Sha Wujing (the Sand Monk).

The story takes place on middle earth, when they arrive in the city of Sache.....

Although the plot displaying on the movie board says that its a love story, honestly, theres so much more to it than that, theres evil tree spirits, a millenium bug deamon (lol crazy !), swarms of bug soldiers, lizard people, imps, and time travelers from the future.

Hawayy! I loved the CGI! It reminded me very much of Final Fantasy slash Stargate slash (Dragon ball Z??!)

Okay so the movie made me cry a bit, ehehe! I wasnt really expecting to be blown away by this, this exceeded my expectations by a mile wide! I was only expecting cheezy comedy when I got this, but lo and behold Im very suprised and quite pleased with this one! :D

Im mighty interested with getting a copy of the Journey to the West (book), all just because of this movie.

Please keep in mind that this movie is, as the title says, A TALL TALE, it is not to be analyzed or taken so seriously. It is after all a chinese comedy/drama/fantasy/sci-fi/action-adventure movie, and their target market included kids.
