bEcause the unruly and unpredictable Monkey King, a sort of god with great magic powers, has tricked the Dragon King out of his magic pillar, he is brought to be tried by the Jade Emperor. The Emperor however figures he can't just punish a being as powerful as the Monkey King the old-fashioned way, so instead he lures him to heaven, to make him master of the Heavenly Stables - and in no time at all, the Monkey King has tamed all the heavenly horses and made the place his own - to no delight to the minister of transportwho wants the Monkey King's obedience ...

Soon enough, the Monkey King and the minister of transport fall out with each other, and the Monkey King returns to his realm and creates havoc wherever he can. Plus, he proclaims himself Great Sage, the Equal of Heaven, much to the dismay of the Gods, who challenge him one after the other but are all defeated.

Eventually, the Jade Emperor and his court decide to lure the Monkey King back to Heaven, and this time they make him master of the Heavenly Peach Garden. This goes quite well for a while, untilthe Monkey King finds out his peaches are to be delivered to a banquet where he is not invited ... so he retaliates by devouring all of the banquet himself, then he makes a visit to Laozi's house to steal all of the Emperor's long life pills. Eventually, the Emperor sees himself forced to send his strongest warrior Eran Sheng after him, who is even able to capture the Monkey King, however, when Laozi tries to burn him in his oven, he is tricked by the Monkey King, who this way escapes captivity once more and has his vengeance on all those who have wronged him before returning to his realm ...


Elegantly done and colourful animation film based on the legend of the Monkey King, maybe a bit too traditional and not quite as excessive and surreal as its source material would have allowed, but on the other hand very well-crafted , fast-moving and pretty amusing. Sure, it's a tad childish, but then it was made for children ...
