Bit of a blast from the past modernised with better effects than a plastic person on a bit of cotton wool - getting good reviews

On the way to India to collect ancient holy scrolls, the sacred priest, Tripitaka, and his loyal band of followers led by Monkey are implored by a mysterious princess to protect her people from a powerful demon warlord, King Gold Horn, and his tyrannical brother, King Silver Horn. They have wrestled control of the palace, plundered its riches and transformed the royal family into terrapin tortoises. Mischievous Monkey, Sandy, Pigsy and Tripitaka must combine their strength to defeat the evil warlords and prevent the world being plunged into darkness forever!

Taken from dvdactive . .

Video
The 2.35:1 1080p transfer offered here is pretty decent stuff. It doesn't offer the sharpest image in the world, but there is enough detail in there to warrant buying the Blu-ray over the standard DVD. It's a clean transfer, with little to no grain and no noticeable artefacting. Considering it's a rather gaudy looking film in places, the colour scheme is handled suitably well, with no noticeable bleeding or clashing. Black levels are fairly deep, but not enough to hide the dodgy joins between set and CGI in the climax. It's not a perfect transfer, but I've seen a few of the Cine Asia BDs now, and it's probably the best I've seen them put out so far.

Audio
Although I am aware that Cine Asia are purists when it comes to original language tracks, they really dropped the ball by not offering an English dub in the style of the old series. I wanted at least Miriam Margolyes, dammit. Despite various reports of a weak 5.1 mix, I found the track to be rather nice. It's a loud one, make no mistake, but there is good balance between dialogue and effects, especially the comedy pings and FX, and the seventies style funk soundtrack is lovely and clear. Surrounds support the action well, with the cloud chase zipping around the rears nicely. Although it's not demonstration quality, I was pleasantly surprised by the track. A 2.0 is also offered.

A penny more @ HMV, but with Quidco (they have trailer there too - looks fun)

I would personally always use Amazon over HMV though - heat added

You realise that 'film' converted to digital has many more pixels than 1080p right?
