A connection with other galaxies even before Star Wars came into being; a love story that is out of this world… Tang monk TRIPITAKA (Nicholas Tse) and his three disciples - Monkey king SUN WUKONG (Chen Po-lin), Pig monk ZHU WUNENG (Kenny Kwan), and Sank monk SHA WUJING (Steven Cheung) arrive triumphantly to a hero's welcome in Shache City. Little do they know that ahead of them lays Tripitaka's most arduous challenge before he achieves deification… and it is a test that he and only he alone can overcome.During their stay in the city, the three disciples are captured by the Root of All Evils. Tripitaka borrows the Golden Pole and tries to find a way to save them. He meets a young lizard imp MEIYAN (Charlene Choi) who is more than a visual match for Quasimodo: matted bushy hair, and the teeth of any dentist's nightmare. Meiyan falls in love with Tripitaka at first sight and devotes herself to trailing him. She even sets a love traps to ensnare him. Tripitaka unwittingly falls into the trap and, in the process, breaks the Heavenly Code.The region is one full of monsters, strange beings and creatures of unknown origins and among them are the beautiful PRINCESS XIAOSHAN (Fan Bingbing) and her alien army. On a passing journey to Earth, her path crosses Tripitaka's and she vows her aid. Tripitaka decides to leave with the Princess.Meiyan is heartbroken. She picks a fight with Princess Xiaoshan and, although she loses, she finally discovers her own identity as a galactic warrior, she eventually helps the princess in defeating the enemy and rescues Tripitaka and his disciples.After the battle, Meiyan surrenders to the Celestial Court for judgement. Torn between passion and righteousness, Tripitaka rebels against the heavens to rescue the gallows-bound Meiyan. A benevolent Buddha is moved and pardons the two, on condition that they embark on a journey to the west to accomplish the Eighty-One Tasks to redeem themselves as well as to save the world.Disc 1 :Main FeaturesBonus TrailersCommentaries X 2Disc 2 :Deleted ScenesMusic VideoCast and Crew IntreviewBehind the ScenesPhoto Gallery

Weird movie
Yes, the film is kitschy, the plot is silly and CGI looks awful. But you know what? I really enjoyed it. It's worth every $ I paid for it. If you've seen or heard about other of director Jeff Lau's films - give this one a try too.
