JOURNEY TO THE WEST: THE DEMONS STRIKE BACK is a Chinese fantasy action adventure sequel in which a Buddhist monk and his three benevolent demon disciples travel Central Asia in search of other demons.

Violence

There is moderate fantasy violence, often slapstick in nature, with the majority of the protagonists being monsters or demons. In one scene scratch marks are seen on the back of a woman's forearm and in another scene a woman's arm is deliberately cut in order to draw blood for a 'demon test'. Otherwise, little or nothing is seen in terms of blood or injury detail.

Threat

From time to time characters are confronted and threatened by moderately scary monsters. The threat is never sustained.

Other issues include infrequent mild sex references, infrequent mild rude humour, and mild bad language including uses of 'asshole', 'balls', 'bastard', 'bullshit' and 'sodding'.
