The Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Gong Li, Feng Shaofeng and Law Chung Him starred, Soi Cheang Po Shui directed Lunar New Year film THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAI YAU GEI ji SUEN NG HUNG SAM DA BAK GWUT JING) elevated the well known tale of "Thrice Strike White Bone Spirit" into "three battles". The film even invited action director Sammo Hung Kam Bo to design the fantastic action for the "three strikes".
In the first wave trailer, Sing Sing's action was simple and clean as he thoroughly displayed the "battle again Heaven and Earth"; as the White Bone Spirit Gong Li turned into a smart and brave "evil queen" to "battle wits" with Sun Wukong. Describing the highly difficult script and Sun Wukong's "three strikes", Gong Li called them "a mission that was impossible to complete"; the Ran Ping, Ran Jianan and Wen Ning formed screenwriting team even made over 130 changes on the entire script.
