What are critics saying?


The Hollywood Reporter by

Martial-arts lovers may find it too arty, and art-film lovers, Wong's international fan base, may find it too generic and too violent.


Variety by Derek Elley

The temptation of artists to fiddle with their earlier works brings predictably mixed results in Ashes of Time: Redux.


New York Post by V.A. Musetto

The film has all the visual flourishes we expect of Doyle and Wong, and they're reason enough to see Ashes of Time Redux. Just don't expect to make sense of the plot.
