This post certainly feels like deja vu because I had just written about a drama version of A Chinese Odyssey and yet there’s also a movie! A Chinese Odyssey Part Three 大话西游3 was released in theaters on Sept. 14, 2016.
It tells a story heavily influenced by the six wheels of life and a pandora’s box that allows its bearer the ability to navigate through time. The plot is similar to the 1995 Stephen Chow original where Zhi Zun Bao is caught in a romance between Bai Jing Jing and Zi Xia Xian Zi.
When it comes right down to it, it is a one of a kind comedy and I really hope the new cast has what it takes to work the same magic though the general sentiment is that they fail horribly.
The movie features a star-studded cast which include Han Geng, Tiffany Tang Yan, Jacky Wu Jing, Karen Mok, Gillian Chung and more. I think it’s awesome that Karen Mok reprises her role as Bai Jing Jing twenty years later and she looks amazing.
