It’s heartening that this is the biggest blockbuster event of China’s 2013, as it’s quite good and — out of cultural context — winningly idiosyncratic, spending its money on a Buddhist parable rather than the usual hero’s quest to prevent the end of the universe.

Journey to the West, adapted extremely loosely from a very famous 16th-century Chinese novel, is one of those movies that dares to mix unspeakable horror with laugh-out-loud slapstick, high-minded themes with dumb humor. Stephen Chow, who also made a name for himself Stateside with the hitsShaolin Soccer and Kung-fu Hustle, specializes in this kind of gonzo action comedy, and this is the most ambitious and spectacular movie he’s made yet.

Conquering The Demons feels like a Chow movie through and through; as in his other films, much of its charm rests in the intermingling of the very high-concept and the very lowbrow. Long, effects-heavy set pieces… are peppered with fat suits, grimacing reaction shots, and sped-up Benny Hill-style running. Chow’s humor is coarse and facile, but it becomes surprising when placed against a backdrop of large-scale, pile-up action.
