Synopsis:

 

American teenager Jason [Michael Angarano], who is obsessed with Hong Kong cinema and kungfu classics, finds an antique Chinese staff in a pawn shop. The antique staff is the legendary stick weapon of the Chinese sage and warrior, the Monkey King [Jet Li]. With the lost relic in hand, Jason unexpectedly finds himself transported back to ancient China. There, he meets the drunken kungfu master, Lu Yan [Jackie Chan]; an enigmatic and skillful Silent Monk [also by Jet Li]; and a vengeance-bent kungfu beauty, Golden Sparrow [Crystal Liu Yi Fei].

 

They lead him on his quest to return the staff to its rightful owner, the Monkey King - imprisoned in stone by the evil Jade Warlord [Collin Chou] for five hundred years. Along the way, while attempting to outmaneuver scores of Jade Warriors, Cult Killers and the deadly White Hair Demoness, Ni Chang [Li Bing Bing], Jason learns about honor, loyalty and friendship, and the true meaning of kungfu, and thus frees himself.

I am definitely looking forward to this movie. Trailer looks awesome. Though I'm not sure if I like the little "western" twist in the story. But I guess I'll have to see it to determine whether I would like it or not lol.

Judging from the poster, Jackie Chan is supposed to be the monkey king and Jet Li is supposed to be the monk...but i wonder why the protagonist has the signature golden rod. Hopefully the boy's involvement in the ancient story fits in nicely. Also, I hope the story still has the same impact with Chan and Li speaking English as opposed to Chinese.

I'll still go and watch this movie although the reviews I read said the story was around a C grade yet the action and movie overall was a B grade. They said the fight scene between Jackie Chan and Jet Li was great!

 

Plus it's another episode to do with the Monkey King story, which I love!
