Movie Info

The third installment of the blockbuster fantasy series sees the return of the Monkey King (Aaron Kwok) in his most action-packed adventure yet! While continuing their epic journey to the West, the Monkey King and his companions are taken captive by the Queen of an all-female land, who believes them to be part of an ancient prophecy heralding the fall of her kingdom. With a lot of sorcery and a little bit of charm, the travelers devise a plan to escape. But when their trickery angers the mighty River God, they realize they might just bring about the foretold destruction - unless they can find a way to quell her wrath.

Critic Reviews for The Monkey King 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

"The Monkey King 3" is more about eye-popping spectacle than narrative sweep, but it's generous with images that make audiences go, "Oooh!"

Cheang does his able best to balance a love story with the heightened fantasy action expected of the previous two films, and after a rocky start he largely succeeds.

February 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Much of "The Monkey King 3" is devoted to philosophical musing and romantic mooning, the latter cued to a drippy ballad.

February 15, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Having eschewed the usual depictions of Wukong causing supernatural mayhem, The Monkey King 3 stands or falls on its musings about love in all its forms - and they're largely unsatisfying.

A chore to sit through.

February 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Its action scenes are let down by the poor graphics and cringey acting. As for the romantic storyline, it is cliched and forced, and ends predictably.
