Ah, the main character definitely looked too much like an actual monkey.

I saw this movie on a flight, and the animation was very good. I do however feel that the story was a little lacking for my taste. I think maybe I was expecting a little more explanation for some of the story lines, and the plot felt kind of choppy. Some of the familiar secondary characters in "Journey to the West" do appear but characters like the White Dragon don't even get a speaking role and I never figured out why it decided to help out the heroes at the end. It was just sort of there. No backstory, no nothing. I think the movie relied a little too heavily on the audience's awareness of the original story before watching the movie. It may leave those unfamiliar with Chinese folklore a bit confused.

The monkey looked too much like a monkey? That is a problem?

Personal observation. I never stated that it is a problem. Chill...Oh, never expected for a CG related movies/shows article to received more than a single reply.
