“Journey to the West” feels like an overly ordinary title for a film that is anything but. Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle’s Stephen Chow has hardly made the story of immigration that the words might suggest, instead giving us a loose adaptation of the Chinese legend of the Monkey King, and one Buddhist’s battle to protect his village against three demons.
In a TR-exclusive clip, you’re going to get a look at what happens when one of those demons confronts the Monkey King. Let’s just say that pain is a-foot.
Journey to the West opens tomorrow in theaters and on-demand.
