News & Interviews for Kung Fu Hustle
Critic Reviews for Kung Fu Hustle
So disarmingly eager to please that only a stone-faced kung fu purist could object.
Chow's movie may seem nutty on the surface, but its slyness, its dreamy unfolding of so many moods and genres, becomes intoxicating.
A film where special effects erase physics and the constraints of the human body, there's absolutely no telling what will come next.
Kung Fu Hustle snaps and crackles like nuclear popcorn on a scorching griddle.
But for all its stylishness, verve and moments of visual poetry, the relentlessly punishing slapstick and overall cruel tone left me cold.
Audience Reviews for Kung Fu Hustle
With another fantastic combination of martial arts, nonsensical humor and cartoonish special effects, Stephen Chow's follow-up to Shaolin Soccer may not be as incessantly hilarious as that film but is an amazing entertainment for those who love great fight scenes and surprises.
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
Poetry. And funny too. The Axe Gang are the new big kids in town, but only for a quick moment in this game of filmic one-upmanship that's at the heart of this heavily influenced by Hollywood Chinese film. Count the many, many references to popular cult favorites ... it's too many to count. And just flat out fun. Love it.
