Only for the cultured This movie pays homage to many things of the classic kung fu movies of old. It's got the action and it's got the comedic value to boot. While supplementing a few comedic scenes with CG effects, the movie is crafted so that is both pleasing to us old kung fu movie fans and entertaining to new viewers of this unique flavor of martial arts action. Riding high on the immense success of Shaolin Soccer, Stephen Chow does it again to bring us a great and entertaining movie for us to watch. Don't ask nor say which one is the best. Simply view this and Shaolin Soccer and judge for yourself. They're both great in their own right.
This is a action packed movie loaded with a ton of comedy scenes! It has a very good story line too. As most modern movies, there is a love story backdrop. This movie can be viewed with a girlfriend or wife. It is not all "Sweet Home Alabama" buesst it will work as mild chick flick! This is a action packed movie from start to finish.
Brilliant On the surface this is a funny, fast paced kung fu film that is worth anyone's time... For those who dig deeper its riddled with easter eggs an homages to kung fu films of old. This film is one of my favorites.
Easily one of the best movies I've seen I don't like kung fu movies, and I REALLY don't like subtitles. This movie has always been the happy exception. At any point in the movie, your jaw will hurt from either laughing or having it hit the floor in amazement.
Amazing A funny and action packed movie violent yes,dark humor most definitely but a must see sure there are some cheesy fight scenes that look unreal but who cares it's a movie get over it...really great movie
Really wish it had English voice dub though like the Bluray. 😐👎Cool but if you don't speak Chinese it's kind of cumbersome to watch a movie like this on the plane or whatever. Having to read the subtitles sucks. Love this movie though.
Incredible Fun Somewhere between a farce and a dramatization, is Kung Fu Hustle. It's bizarre, dramatized action. But it also manages to have a point, unlike many farces. It's a ton of fun and a great way to spend an hour and a half.
One of the most action packed movies I've seen in ages. I feel it fell a little flat when there was something other than the kung-fu fighting going on, but if you take it as a movie for pure enjoyment and love of an art form, you will adore this movie.
Loved it when I saw it on TV because the audio language was in English. Here only has in Chinese. I don't like watching a movie and spending the entire time reading. If I wanted to read I would have bought the book. What a ripoff!
