Great anti-commie allegory from those pesky Taiwanese.
You gotta love this movie. Whether poison gas is spewing from the evil Queen's navel or a donkey is disputing Communist doctrine, it's a load of laughs. The special effects are strictly on the cheap (at one point, I thought I was going through the Wayback Machine with Mr. Peabody), but they are completely in keeping with the overall style and message. It's kind of hard to read the subtitles, as they are very small and go by quickly. I'm still not sure how things turned out for Mr. Wang or how he ended up serving the demon, but I think that it's unimportant. Be sure to sing along with the Immortals when they break into song. Much more fun than "Aleksander Nevsky".
