TEARS OF NO REGRET Review: Sun Wukong Falls In Love And Disgrace To Save Mankind

Sun Wukong´s possibilities as fictional character are as endless as his own immortality and the Chinese entertainment market is squeezing them to the last consequences. This Fantasy adventure brings back the Monkey King in a fun and original new vision, where the character seems to leave behind his deity, to suffer and sacrifice for love as a mere mortal, showing a vulnerability that he always seemed to lack of. Throughout the film there are different references to ” Journey To The West”, even including a small homage to 1964 animation classic “Havoc In Heaven”, one of the most popular and acclaimed adaptations of the novel.
