Storyline

Tang Monk brings three disciples on a journey to the West. On the outside, everything seems harmonious. However, tension is present beneath the surface, and their hearts and minds are not in agreement. After a series of demon-capturing events, the monk and his disciples gain mutual understanding of each others' hardships and unease. Finally, they resolve their inner conflict and work together to become an all-conquering, demon-exorcising team.

Remove your expectations like you did in the first movie!
8 June 2018 | by yueicaruSee all my reviews

There are so many hate in this movie here in IMDb, but hater always hate. People nowadays like to compare and expect the best, but then gets easily disappointed more than ever.

For me, this movie is a perfect sequel and a must-watch for teens and adults. The recast is not as bad as they say and the actors fit their roles perfectly. The story is unpredictable and humorous with amazing visuals just like the first movie. There's also more CGI, not like GoT or Avengers quality, but better than the first and still satisfying. I really enjoyed the movie and I'm very excited to see what will happen next. The same feelings I had after finishing the first movie, surprised and thrilled.

This is my first review and I hope you see this fair and unbiased. Don't believe what others say. Watch the first movie and then give this one a chance. You'll not regret it!
