Movie Info

When the hapless Sing (Stephen Chow) and his dim-witted pal, Bone (Feng Xiaogang), try to scam the residents of Pig Sty Alley into thinking they're members of the dreaded Axe Gang, the real gangsters descend on this Shanghai slum to restore their fearsome reputation. What gang leader Brother Sum (Danny Chan) doesn't know is that three legendary retired kung fu masters (Yu Xing, Dong Zhihua, Chiu Chi-ling) live anonymously in this decrepit neighborhood and don't take kindly to interlopers.

Audience Reviews for Kung Fu Hustle

  • Jul 21, 2015
    Do the Hustle....the Kung Fu Hustle. A hilarious satire of kung fu films, Kung Fu Hustle is entertaining and full of laughs. When the Axe gang tries to muscle in on a low-rent housing complex called Pig Sty Alley they get more than they bargain for, as three martial arts masters living there in seclusion step up to defend their homes. The fight scenes are choreographed quite well, as are the dance scenes. And the comedy is pretty funny, though it gets overly cartoonish and silly at times. Yet despite some weakness, Kung Fu Hustle is a lot of fun.

    Stephen Chow's impressive comedy/kung-fu bonanza is terrific. Kung Fu Hustle displays the dynamic direction of Chow along with a laugh-out-loud combination of action and humor, further heightening the director's/actor's credibility. 4/5

    Absolutely one of the funniest, best Chinese Action films I've ever seen that even strikes a soft spot during your cavalcade of Chinese comedy.

    For some reason, this movie was just released in theaters in the US. It has been out for quite a while though. This movie is generally entertaining, with a little too much cheese for my taste, but the humorous dialogue and effects make it worth watching.
