WUKONG is a Mandarin language fantasy action adventure in which a mythical hero journeys to heaven and rebels against the gods.

Violence

There are frequent fight scenes, with use of magic weapons, in which hefty kicks and punches are exchanged. In one scene (when the heroes have become briefly mortal) several characters are struck by flying shards with some bloody impacts. In another, a character is punched in the face leaving a bloody mouth. A god is shown in the aftermath of torture, shackled by glowing chains. His wounds glow fantastically but he bleeds from the mouth. In most of the fights, magical weapons are used against fantasy creatures who shatter into shards or dissolve into dust.

Other issues include: mild threat from gods and demons (figures in black robes and masks surround the heroes, a cloud demon takes on the shape of a fanged snake, a god transforms into a vast colossus); mild bad language ('crap', 'bloody', 'damn', 'jerk'); and very mild sex references (a character is described as trying on 'filth').
