Journey To The West

Journey To the West PosterN and I recently watched Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons.  I love a good kung fu movie and Stephen Chow makes some of the best.

Journey to the West is the story an aspiring Buddhist demon hunter.  In the course of trying to protect a village he gets thrown together with another demon hunter and develops complicated feelings for her.  Hijinks and epic battles ensue!

The movie is visually stunning with great effects and fight choreography.   and it’s very funny.  It also made me want to find out more about the classic Chinese story that it’s a prequel for.

We didn’t let the kids watch it with us.  There are some intense scenes and some of the encounters with the demons rack up a lot of victims.  Maybe 12 and up?  I dunno.

Anyway, check out Journey to the West if you get the chance.  Even if you’re generally not into kungfu movies it’s very entertaining.
