YesAsia Editorial Description

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 40th anniversary DVD 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.

Brings back memories Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I remember seeing this film over 20 years ago on British TV, and it was brilliant - even more so, because I used to own the book - Havoc in Heaven - and the cartoon is virtually the same, straight out of the cartoon book. Visuals are excellent - easily visually comparable to Disney animation at the time. Looking forward to my DVD

absolutely brilliant Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
seen the movie twice on TV in 1982. 1st time on Dutch TV, 2nd time on BBC (British tv). I was thrilled. Been looking for a video since then. Didn't have a videorecorder back then to tape it (PITY). The version that is sold now on DVD is ONLY 85 minutes. The original movie is 115 minutes. So what happened????

Excellent. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I simply love this film. I saw this film for the first time when I was only a young child and now seen it again more than 20 years later, it's even better. The flim is wonderfully draw, music is excellent, great fun for both children and adults alike. A must see DVD.
