Kung Fu what?
Kung Fu Hustle
Three words: Absolutely freaking hilarious.
But don't rent it if you're looking for a serious movie. Don't rent it if you want an intellegent logical film. In the words of Roger Ebert: "Imagine a film in which Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton meet Quentin Tarantino and Bugs Bunny."
The movie opens to a brutal beating of a cop who foolishly arrested a gang lord's wife. As the gang leave the police station however, another gang shows up and disposes of gang number one. The newcomers? The most deadly in the land: The Axe Gang. The credits then roll with hilarious footage of the axe gang dancing to some great swing music.
The rest of the flick is focussed on Pig Sty Ally. A dirty little village which the Axe Gang set it's sight on. Luckily for the village, 3 kung fu heroes happen to live there. Battle, and hilarity ensues. The Axe Gang hire numerous kung fu warriors, and eventually some new heroes emerge from Big Sty Ally, including the least likeliest of all.
If you enjoy subtitles, intense kung fu action, poor CGI, and a great laugh, this movie is right up your ally.
I give Kung Fu Hustle a 4/5. I'd buy it if I wasn't getting married and had no money.
