Critic Reviews of "Journey To The West: Conquering The Demons"VarietyMay 14, 2014
Another exquisite, snail-paced cinematic perambulation from Tsai Ming-liang and Lee Kang-sheng.New YorkerApril 14, 2014
Liang's ravishing conceptual film achieves a rare blend of sensuous delight and documentary specificity.New York Magazine/VultureMarch 07, 2014
Journey to the West works so well because Chow has a flair for grand comic-action set pieces, and his imagination seems to actually draw energy from these rapid-fire tonal shifts.RogerEbert.comMarch 07, 2014
By turns daffy and dazzling, awkward and artful, "Journey to the West" takes an ancient tale and gives it contemporary flair.New York TimesMarch 06, 2014
Mr. Chow has perhaps achieved more sustained and elaborate adventures, but he hits a sweet spot of comedy that never grows too self-aware or forgets the value of a good, clean demon whomping.New York PostMarch 06, 2014
The final product is very much Chow - with elaborately staged stunts, slapstick inspired by silent Hollywood, and a silliness that will appeal to kids (as well as some black humor that may take some explaining for younger audiences).Screen InternationalMarch 30, 2016
Stephen Chow's Journey To The West: Conquering The Demons is a thoroughly entertaining action comedy that suggests, a la Woody Allen, a promising new life behind the screen for the actor-director.eFilmCritic.comJuly 14, 2015
Chow breaks out one elaborate set-piece after another.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsDecember 11, 2014
It makes good use of computer animation and slapstick action comedy.Under the RadarAugust 18, 2014
Stephen Chow's inimitable chops for comedic action are on full display in Journey to the West.The ListJuly 03, 2014
It is a work that appears to ask so little from its audience (not much more than patience and an alert eye), but gives a heck of a lot back.Film Comment MagazineApril 21, 2014
A kung fu comedy, a Chinese fairy story, a Buddhist action movie, a prequel to a mega-series that makes James Cameron's ambitions look puny, Chow's Journey to the West is everything that is good about China's mega-blockbuster inclinations.
