Critic Reviews for Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

If anything, Demons Strike Back is an even zanier and more kid-friendly affair than the Chow original. Yet without Chow's unique strain of silliness, it also feels louder and more antic while covering less ground.

A madcap success on its own bizarre terms and an informative distillation of each auteur's sensibility.

Feb 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A rare character-driven big-budget action-adventure - the kind of thing Americans might love if they knew it existed.

Feb 2, 2017 | Full Review…

All spectacle and little substance, a stop-gap title produced perhaps to keep the brand going while the producers search for a way to bring the series forward.

The kid friendly comical martial arts film draws only a smattering of laughs.

Jun 16, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

This tension between tradition and subversion results in a curiously unstable film; easy enough to watch in the moment, but unnaturally slippery in meaning.
