[Monkey King: Hero is Back]

Today I’d like to recommend a movie to you!
He has a body cast of iron with fire in his eyes. The Immortal One, who can transform 72 times, was so naughty that he was helplessly thrown into the deep sea. It was not until 400 years later when he freed himself by a young monk. Even though he reclaimed a new life, the spell was still sealed in his suppressing bracelet so he had no choice but to walk the young monk all the way. On the way, Tian-peng and White Dragon offered their help. Stopped by a great number of demons, he once shook his beliefs, tried to escape and felt helpless. He finally broke the seal at a life-or-death moment for the monk, transforming qi into armor, rising into the clouds with a long cudgel in hand, and became as powerful as the Heaven. When he dropped from Heaven with a full hand of “anger”, he would turn himself into a devil in a split moment at any cost. While hearing someone whispering “Great Sage” in a soft and immature voice, he turned his head in tears, and chose to become a Buddha instead.
Adapted from Chinese classical literature Journey to the West, this movie is so soul-stirring and touching which is worth watching for everyone.
