Remember Shaolin Soccer? Remember Kung-Fu Hustle? Remember how long it’s been since we’ve seen those two films? Stephen Chow makes his return to his brand of slapstick martial-arts goodness with “Journey to the West,” an old Chinese fable about a Buddhist priest and a band of demons who go on a journey for redemption (it features a monkey demon by the name of “Son Goku,” which is where DBZ creator, Akira Toriyama, got the idea).
Here’s the trailer.
Yeah, I don’t know what’s going on here either, but it definitely got my attention. I’ve been in the mood for some dumb, irreverent Hong Kong comedy, so this will suit me nicely. I know it sounds oddly specific, but trust me. It’s an itch that gets harder and harder to scratch as time goes by.
