Director Cheang Pou-soi (Accident) and Aaron Kwok (City Under Siege) reunite for The Monkey King 3, the third installment in the international blockbuster Monkey King franchise.

A small portion of the epic 16th-century Chinese 100-chapter novel Journey to the West again provides the story, picking up where the previous films left off with the Impish magical primate and his motley crew of colorful followers accompanying a monk on a mission to retrieve sacred scriptures. In this installment, they find themselves trapped in a land inhabited only by women. With a queen who believes them to be part of an ancient prophecy heralding the fall of her kingdom.  With a lot of sorcery and a little bit of charm, the travelers devise a plan to escape…

In addition to Aaron Kwok, returning cast menbers include Feng Shaofeng (White Vengeance), Gigi Leung (Turn Left, Turn Right), Xiao Shenyang (The Grandmaster) and Chung Him Law (Eye in the Sky).

This Chinese production is unrated.
