Kung Fu Hustle Reviews
brought back to the scene by the Kung Fu Hustle. As a collection of Stephen's
excellent movies, people believes Kung Fu Hustle is the best of the martial arts film in
the recent years.
This movie is directed, co-produced and co-written by Stephen Chow, who
also stars in the lead role. In Shanghai during 1930s, Xing(acted by Stephen Chow)
attempt to join in the Deadly Axe Gang with his friend Bone(acted by Zi Cong Lin).
They have trouble with the Deadly Axe Gang, and fights involved anti-physical
action between gang and heroes run through the whole movie.
This movie, a reflection of Stephen's life, includes dream of being Bruce
Lee, fear of facing the reality and the enthusiasm of kungfu. The Buddha's Palm to
Chow ,a technique gained after overcoming all the setback, implies that he becomes
strong enough to protect himself, his parents and love. The BGM, action of kungfu
and Wulitou way make it valuable to watch. Folk, western classical music, old
shanghai music recreate the night life of shanghai. The most important element of
Stephen's movies , the Wulitou, is the promise of laugh which make you laugh
whenever you watch his movies. I have watched Stephen's movie since 2003 and
Kung Fu Hustle gives me a chance to watch my idol in the cinema.
A ridiculous blend of action and humor that is both entertaining and engrossing.
I've been watching this movie for last 5 years. it's nothing like this movie.
PS...do not, I repeat, do NOT watch the English dubbed version (this applies to every movie ever made), treat yourself to a fine subtitled journey. I've watched both and the dubbed version loses almost all of the movie's charm.
Give this film a whirl!
