Produced by Stephen Chow and directed by Tsui Hark, Journey To The West: The Demons Strike Back continues the story from the first instalment in 2013. Tang Monk brings three disciples along with him on a journey to the West. On the outside, everything seems harmonious but tension present beneath the surface; and their hearts and minds are not in agreement. It is their quest to gain mutual understanding, resolve their conflicts and work together to become an all-conquering demon exorcising team.
