Sun Wukong, (The Monkey King) is a monkey born from a heavenly stone who acquires supernatural powers. This first movie in a planned trilogy is the origins story, beginning with the birth of Sun Wukong and ending with his imprisonment for his crimes under the Five-Peaked Mountain. Along the way, he acquires incredible powers, which he uses to battle both the armies of the gods and the armies of the demons to find his rightful place in the Heavens. It is a classic story of the scorned underdog who acquires great abilities but uses them recklessly and ultimately must pay a huge price to find redemption. The Monkey King: Havoc in Heaven's Palace captures the drama, beauty, humor, and fantastic action of the classic folk legend and brings it to the screen in a way never before possible.

Goddess Guanyin, what brings you here?
-Master Puti, I come here for a divine monkey. He was born out of Nuwa's crystals. If taught and trained properly, he could bring virtues to mankind. But this monkey was born with both virtue and vice in him, I'm afraid... that's why you should teach him patiently and turn him into a virtuous being.
Where can I find this divine monkey?
-Mount Huaguo

The road to deity isn't as simple as you thought. You need to accumulate experience and practice for a long time. It all depends on you. Whether you can be a deity or not. When you understand the true meaning of life and death one day. You'll see what I mean.

I heard Heaven Palace is boundless and very beautiful.
-Tell me.
There is the 33rd level of Heaven. Some immortals have the ability of "Resurrect the Dead".

I left Heaven Palace and followed you here. I broke the rule that forbids love affairs between demons and deities just to be with you. But why can't you just let go?
-For the family doctrine passed down from our ancestors.
It's either Heaven. Or me and our kid. You pick a side
-I want them both.
===
Elixir?
-Deities will have their magical power multiplied after taking the elixir. One pill is worth 30,000 years of practice. Jade Emperor has been refining his practice since young. He experienced 1,750 painful mishaps. Each of which lasts 129,600 years. That's why he deserves to take this pill of “no bounds and major wisdom,” which helps him manage the three realms.
===
I see myself. But I don't see the truth of me.
-If you are born to be not dead, you're destined to experience countless mishaps and catastrophes. If you repeatedly committing evil, what's the point of being alive. Lives seem unpredictable. Everything have birth and death.

Since the beginning of the world. The deity from Heaven has been shoulderingthe task of maintaining world's stability. Controlling the balance of the deity, the human and the demon. Demon has been oppressed by the heaven, the demon tribe has always been discontent with being subservient to the deity.
===
Didn't you always wish. The deity and demon can get along?
-I can make this wish come true. But it's fate that deities and demons don't fall in love with each other.
===
These are cloud-walking boots. Gold chain armour and phoenix-feather cap. It has a spirit. It turns good on a good guy turns bad on a bad guy.
===
Minor spirits like me can live for 200 more years at most I'll die after 200 years.
-After death. You can resurrect.
How will I have that kind of luck? That's why I cherish every day. I wake up daily to see the sunrise.
===
Don't call me the Handsome Monkey King anymore. "Call me the “Great Sage equal of Heaven."

Makeup for the main character (monkey) was disappointing, I could not recognize the actor at all and the makeup has completely masked the facial expression of the monkey. Too much unnecessary CG effect.

Adapted from the early chapters of the enchanted fantasy classic "Journey to the West," the film was all about special effects that might have looked good in 3D but bland on normal flat screens. Apparently one of those rare Chinese films that grossed more than 1B RMB in China box office. The highest ones are "Mojin: The Lost Legend, 1.682 billion yuan 2015" and "Lost in Hong Kong, 1.613 billion yuan 2015:" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest-grossing_films_in_China
