Utterly awesome. Jaw dropping stunts combined with hilarious dubbed lines and remarkably dumb mistaken identity. Oh look a man...no...wait...it's my mum in a hat! On top of this the story makes a great shift from daft to serious towards the end without losing the fun. One of the greatest Jet Li films I've seen.
Hyper-logic style kung fu in a prison with a ridiculously strong protgaonist who is able to punch through people. The effects are pretty decent and this is just utterly hilarious at times. I nearly wet myself during a flashback with his girlfriend. Cartoon mortal kombat styled gore and just amazingly funny/
Genuinely moving and inventive rom com that avoids the usual cliches and pit falls. I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed. Wonderful film.
When the martial arts actual happen it's good obviously, but there is not as much of that as you'd like in an Ong Bak film and not only that but the first 30-40 mins makes very little coherent sense. You get a selection of random scenes interspersed with back story and the confusion that arises is more by accident then design. Although there was a good film in there trying to get out it was too convoluted for even the beautiful filming in some of the scenes to make for a film I'd be happy to recommend. For your money there's better Kung Fu out there.
Excellent fun in the vain of Machine Girl, Robogeisha and Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl, it dives straight in with amusing dialogue and action complete with occasional bizarre OTT characters and plenty of gore that'll keep fans of the above mentioned pleased. The Alien costume design is amusing and there's more than a dash of surrealist WTF humour to boot.
Great fun film.
