Setelah membunuh Miss Duan di kisah sebelumnya, Monkey King kini dijinakkan oleh Tang Sanzang dan menjadi salah satu muridnya.

BLOGGERS REVIEW

DANIEL IRAWAN (Daniel Dokter)

Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back is nowhere near Kung Fu Hustle–though at many times it tried to–or as groundbreaking as the first installment. But, continuing his darkest yet funniest and the most imaginative version of The Monkey King, Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back again marks Stephen Chow as a distinct cinematic auteur in HK cinema, this time with Tsui Hark to deliver the eye-popping visual spectacle. Rating: NA

ELBERT REYNER (Daily Cinephile)

Meski cast-nya diubah total, Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back masih punya narasi dan karakter yang mampu melanjutkan apa yang telah dibangun di film pertamanya. Namun, eksekusi Tsui Hark yang lebih mengutamakan visual spectacle daripada substansi membuat segala aspek di Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back jauh berada di bawah film pendahulunya. CGI buruk di film non-Hollywood itu sebenarnya bisa ditoleransi selama penggunaannya masih tahu diri. Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back ini sudah keterlaluan banget. Rating: ★★

ERLITA PUTRANTI (It Caught My Eyes)

An absurdly fun take on the old-as-time tale, Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back was such a feel good movie. Tang-Wukong was quite a shipbait, though. Rating: ★★★

VINCENT JOSE (The Jose Movie Review)

Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back was the most deserved version of Monkey King in recent years. A visual spectacle–although was not always consistent–with an interesting relationship between Sun Gokong and Priest Tang. Rating: ★★★1/2
