Journey to the West

Reviewed by: Gigi September 14, 2005

Rating: 3.0 out of 5

Following the "Journey to the West" (JTTW) fever, I decide to write reviews for any JTTW series that I have watched so far. I should forewarn the readers that this review is written with a rather serious and different perspective than those from the norms. Being a devout Buddhist and knowing a bit about Chinese folklore and mythologies, I cannot help being agitated at the naive view of the producer. It was evident from tacky...

This series I would have given it a full score. I took it for what it was, a comedy. I didn't think too much about religion, for seriously, if they had incorporated all that depth behind Buddhism into it, the series would be much to complicated and could not hold peoples interest.

The whole cast was incredible here. Benny Chan's could not possibly fill in dicky's shoes. I thought the script was fine made me laugh a lot, even more now that i understand more of the jokes.

The graphics were in my opinion the best of all tvb series. Other tvb series tend to overdo their graphics so much that it was embarrassing. Here everything is done just right.

Just to comment on one of the comments below.
Dicky Cheung did play the monkey king in this series. The sequel to this series, which continues their journey, had Dicky Cheung replaced by Benny Chan.
Later in 2004 or 2005, Dicky reappeared as Monkey King in a new nonsensical JTTW that featured Twins (Gillian Chung and Charlene Choi) as well.
