Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: Another exquisite, snail-paced cinematic perambulation from Tsai Ming-liang and Lee Kang-sheng.
Fresh: Stephen Chow's dazzling comic fantasy about a gentle Buddhist demon hunter.
Fresh: Liang's ravishing conceptual film achieves a rare blend of sensuous delight and documentary specificity.
I want to buy!!! I don't want to rent!
Started out Awesome!
The first part of this movie was incredible. Then as soon as it switched gears to a “love” story that was boring, contrived, and very prolonged… it took a sharp dive downward. The demons were so impressive and unique but the movie strayed from that to some sort of oppressive preachy spirituality that it no longer could be enjoyed. I went from smiling and laughing to apathetic and regretful.
this movie is hilarious. laughed all through the movie. fantastic job of making fun of some of the worst movies ever made in america while adding its own humor. i loved it.
