The story of the Monkey King is a classic of Chinese folklore and part of Wu Cheng'en's novel Journey to the West. It actually centers on the story of the pious monk Xuanzang, who accidentally releases him from his prison in the Mountain of Five Elements where Buddha put him for his delinquency. From there on, Sun Wukong (that's the Monkey King's name) is forced to help said monk on his pilgrimage to India to obtain a holy sutra. Aided by the pig demon Zhu Bajie and the sand demon Sha Wujing, they have to protect their master from demons who are after the holy man's hide.

This sequel focuses on one such attack from the White Bone Demon, played by the wonderful Gong Li, who wants to renew her soon-to-expire demonhood by eating Xuanzang's flesh. And because he is an abstinent monk and she is Gong Li, she's trying to tempt that flesh and manipulate him into alienating his friends and giving up his vows (see Chapter 27 of the original text called “Three Attacks on the White Bone Demon”, which is also the film’s Chinese title and NOT the title of an adult movie).

Soi Cheang Pou-Soi returns as director after filming his epic martial arts festival SPL II in between the two Monkey Kings. Instead of Donnie Yen, Aaron Kwok portrays the Monkey King this time around and good old Sammo Hung did the fight choreography. Calling in the year of the monkey, this movie was one of the three big hits of the holiday season together with Stephen Chow's Mermaid and From Vegas to Macau III with its all-star cast of Andy Lau and Chow Yun-Fat.
