This sequel retains its predecessor's genially goofy shenanigans, incredibly corny punchlines and Hank Azaria's go-for-broke performance as Gargamel.
From the August 06, 2013 issue of Variety
This maniacally lightweight romantic comedy often feels like a Taipei-set "Amelie."
Lu Chuan's epic demands rigorous attention from anyone unfamiliar with Chinese history, making expansion beyond fest and arthouse venues unlikely.
This somewhat uneven but engrossing mini-triptych should please fans of Asian horror without necessarily scaring their pants off.
