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

All Critics (11) | 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.

February 3, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

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

February 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.

February 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.

February 2, 2017 | 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.

December 19, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Mildly entertaining with dazzling visual spectacle, but more silly, exhausting and outrageous rather than fun or funny.

April 4, 2017 | Rating: 5.8/10 | Full Review…
