Viewers with a high tolerance for computer-generated fantasy are the target this time, and may well enjoy the ride.

As with so many of Tsui's works, subplots and characters multiply out of control after the first act.

A lot of things transpire in any given scene, but none of them will make you care what happens next.

December 15, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Over the course of almost two hours, all the amped-up visual effects and slapstick silliness can become awfully exhausting, making a hinted-at sequel ultimately feel like a threat.

December 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The story is motley and not very involving, and the anything-goes CGI undermines the battle sequences.

December 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

For all the shape-shifting antics and giant fantasy creatures that it throws at the audience, Dunjia is only ever as fun as its characters get.
