Movie Info

With a colorful combination of Chinese mythology, martial artistry and camp, this Hong Kong action/fantasy was created by splicing two full-length features together and the cutting 70 minutes from the final product. The results are, not surprisingly, chaotic at best. The main character is the free-wheeling spirit, the Monkey King who makes mischief and gets banished by the humorless Goddess of Mercy. Five centuries pass before he is reincarnated into a bandit king, the Joker. He and his crew live in a remote country inn. One day two devils, Boney M. and Spider Woman show up to the see the Joker. They know his true identity and this creates all sorts of trouble for Boney has loved him all along. Unfortunately, Cinderella, a relatively modern girl, is also in love with the disguised Monkey King who must now choose between the two.
