From the brilliantly warped mind of Hong Kong legend Stephen Chow (“Shaolin Soccer,” “Kung Fu Hustle”) comes an offbeat take on a timeless Chinese tale that fuses elements of classic monster movies with romantic comedy and martial arts. Hot on the trail of a series of mythical demons, the wisecracking Tang Sanzang-a wannabe demon hunter whose weapon of choice is singing nursery rhymes- undergoes a transformative journey chock full of jaw-dropping kung fu kick-assery. With plenty of laughs and elaborately constructed action set pieces that would make Rube Goldberg blush, this spectacular epic smashed Chinese box-office records on its way to Traverse City.
