Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons

Critics Consensus

As sweet, silly, action-packed and ridiculous as director Steven Chow's best work, Journey to the West serves up dazzling action sequences while playing its disparate elements against each other with thrilling abandon.

Audience Reviews for Journey To The West

  • Apr 17, 2017
    Well written, well directed, well acted. Exceptional.

    There was one scene that made me lmao and one scene that made me cry, but otherwise this is a bastardisation of a prequel of the real Journey to the West story.

    A much better version of the Monkey King story than the other outing with Donnie Yen made the same year.
    Anthony V Super Reviewer
  • Jul 04, 2014
    A Buddhist demon hunter who tries to redeem evil spirits clashes with a powerful mercenary huntress who keeps killing his potential converts; she also falls in love with him, despite his vow of chastity, and together they seek the Monkey King's help to defeat a powerful boar demon. The special effects aren't up to Hollywood standards and the Chinese comedy tropes are unfamiliar, but only the most unimaginative and parochial Westerner could fail to be charmed by this endlessly inventive and surprising fantasy/comedy/romance from Stephen (KUNG FU HUSTLE) Chow.
