LEAGUE OF GODS
released Out NOW! 12a | 109 minutes
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.
