This Chinese fan­tasy is a work of non­sense so in­sane that it’s al­most elec­tri­fy­ing. Like a shark, it never stops, whoosh­ing breath­lessly from one con­fus­ing plot point to an­other. Some­where in there there’s god-like be­ing Lei, who must find a pre­cious golden sword. But there’s also a talk­ing plant with one eye, a guy who rides a pan­ther, a fox-woman with nine tails and a six-armed baby who slaugh­ters crabpeo­ple with his farts. It’s clunky, it’s ter­ri­ble, it might be the best film ever made. Stephen Kelly

It was the as­tronomers’ dress-up day.
