YesAsia Editorial Description

The classic sixties Chinese animation Uproar in Heaven was re-released in 3D in 2012! Chen Daoming, Chen Kaige, Zhang Guoli, Feng Xiaogang, Liu Ye, Liu Xiaoqing, Yao Chen, and other top names in the Chinese film industry participated in the voice acting for the 2012 version.

Completed one year before the outbreak of the Cultural Revolution, the timely-titled Uproar in Heaven (1965) represents both the culmination and the final curtain call of the golden age of Chinese animation. The film was a labor of love for brothers Wan Laiming and Wan Guchan, who had created the nation's first animated feature, Princess Iron Fan, in 1941. Like that movie, Uproar in Heaven adapts a portion of the classic Ming Dynasty novel Journey to the West, but with a visual opulence that remains a high watermark of Chinese animated filmmaking. The Wan brothers' masterpiece took over ten years to produce and was originally shown in two parts; this Blu-ray presents the movie as the complete picture the Wans always intended it to be.

Also known by the alliterative title Havoc in Heaven, the movie tells of the origins of the Monkey King, Sun Wu Kong, and the trouble he causes at the celestial court of the Jade Emperor. After obtaining the invincible staff of Yu from the Dragon King, Monkey proclaims himself the "Great Sage Equal to Heaven," demanding obeisance from the immortal pantheon. There's no malice in Monkey's mischief, and at first the denizens of Heaven humor their new companion. But when his brazenness goes too far, the stage is set for a titanic battle between the Monkey King and the hosts of Heaven, including Nezha, Erlang, and Lao Tzu.

Not The Original Movie Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
I have the out of print double DVD set of Uproar in Heaven and this blu-ray appears to be a different film. They have traced the original frames and digitally re-animated it into 3D. The quality of the background artwork is not nearly as good and the colors and soundtrack are completely different. It also looks like some scenes have been added and others have been omitted. This might be OK for children, but if you are looking for the original Wan Brothers classic film, this isn't it. Disappointing. This film deserves better.
