  • The film's visual imagination is boggling and exhilaratingly strange.

  • 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 Hong Kong genre maestro's childlike imagination and technical inventiveness seems inexhaustible.

  • 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.

  • You will never have to wait long before ninjas strike, a gigantic eyeball demon attacks, or a monster's blood rains from the sky and transforms into flower petals in midair.

  • 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.
