Dee is invariably the most sane, grounded person in every scene, though once it's time to bust out the wireworks, he can leap from rafter to rafter with the best of them. It's the movie that never takes flight.

The energy is undeniable, especially when delivered via giant Taoist albino gorilla, and the creaky effects have an endearing artisanal quality that feels like a Zu Warriors throwback.

At over two overstuffed hours, it may prove to be too much for some viewers, but there is so much nifty and bizarre stuff going on that those with a taste for the odd stuff can simply sit back and let it wash over them like an exceptionally vivid dream.

The Four Heavenly Kings strives to bridge the events in [the two previous films] - only to unwittingly abandon its seventh-century mystery for some pointless CGI mayhem halfway through.
