This review is from: Monkey! - Episodes 1-3, Monkey Goes Wild About Heaven / Monkey Turns Nursemaid / The Great Journey Begins [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This slightly skewed British dub of a Japanese TV series based on a Chinese legend has a unique place in the hearts of myself and many of my generation.
If you've never seen it, it's full of bizarre martial arts action, strange special effects, odd lessons on Buddhist wisdom, a lot of weird slapstick and surreal dialogue terribly dubbed.
If you like Hong Kong action movies or anything influenced by them (Hercules and Xena, for example) you'll probably find something to like here.
The nature of Monkey was irrepressible!
