Avis des critiques

Unable to present a truly revisionist version of the story, as he’s done with traditional tales and genres his entire career, Tsui can only hint at artifice, at the phoniness, the illusory nature of the world and its fantasies of power. Laws of physics are abandoned for ever-escalating magical effects, gorgeously rendered by computers in wondrous panoramas of dazzling color and competent 3D, while every major character is revealed to be merely playing a role.

Hark rightly sees nothing as an obstacle to his creativity, and the film feels appropriately monumental and boundless. It’s also very funny to see Hark taking to the deliberately cartoony sensibility of Chow’s writing… Chow integrated this with more sly humor and emotion in the first “Journey To The West,” but Hark’s clamorous direction makes these flourishes feel like magic tricks, emerging from nowhere and vanishing just as quickly.
