I'm a bit put off by the whitewashing, i.e. an entire cast of white actors playing Asian characters. There are also some significant changes to the story (which is a novel based on real people an real events) such as turning Tripitaka from a boy (usually played by a girl because it's supposed to be a young boy) into a teenage girl. And they made Sandy a woman!
