Although there was not much to the story, it was not non-existent, either. This has to be Chow's best, right? More importantly this addition to Chow's superb filmography finally allows us a means of defining his technique. Only one side will win and only one hero will emerge as the greatest kung-fu master of all. His arrogance causes a war to break out between a poor housing complex that secretly holds a number hidden talents and the murderous axe gang.
Sing's reasons for wanting to join the gang are simple: bad guys are cooler. Upon first viewing the trailer, I thought we would have another Kung Pow: Enter The Fist on our hands but, boy, was I wrong.

It would be a good background movie for a party or poker game which could catch your eye at any moment and still hold your attention.
Wachowski's take not, this is how you direct Yuen Wo Ping to this artistic peak. Chaplin, Allen and now actor, writer, producer and director Stephen Chow can join the select few whose remarkable talent as a performer matches his ability behind the lens; Kung Fu Hustle proves it. He stumbles into a slum ruled by eccentric landlords who turns out to be the greatest kung-fu masters in disguise. Sing's actions eventually cause the Axe Gang and the slumlords to engage in an explosive kung-fu battle. Stephen Chow uses his own way to express kung-fu. I saw this movie at the Toronto filmfest and I have to say I loved it, I really didn't know what to expect as I didn't know the director and had only really seen some pretty bad kung fu many years before. Like most Stephen Chow films while the concept is simple to describe, the execution is far more complex.

Chow having succumbed to the digital revolutions in Shaolin Soccer, manages once again to use his effects wisely. It has been awhile since a director has been able to take me from quite serious and intense graphic violence to over the top ridiculous spoofing. Only one side will win and only one hero will emerge as the greatest kung-fu master of all. You can notice most of the effects, but that doesn't matter because they are used for laughs and effectively so. .
When the scene is funny you appreciate the comedy, when it switches gears to action you are blown away by the terrific sequences, when it switches to melodrama you are on the edge of your seat awaiting character responses, and when they're all fused together you do exactly what Chow is hoping you'll do. That being said Kung Fu Hustle is absolute blast. While we respect that you may feel strongly about an issue, please leave room for discussion. A master of blending both comedy and visceral action with artistic integrity and traditional melodrama. Caught the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and the entire theater laughed until they cried. I can't remember the last film I enjoyed myself in more. Obscenities, defamatory language, discriminatory language, or other language not suitable for a public forum 2.
There are many pop culture references in there like reservoir dogs and the matrix. Stephen Chow pulled it off. He doesn't make as many dirty jokes as usual, but you can really learn his philosophy through this two-hours movie and have a very good laugh at the same time. All in all I thought this was a great movie and suspect this will be a huge hit! He stumbles into a slum ruled by eccentric landlords who turns out to be the greatest kung-fu masters in disguise. Compared to his other films this film ranks 1 for its visuals and action, but in terms of laughs and writing it cannot surpass the classics. Set in Canton, China in the 1940s, the story revolves in a town ruled by the Axe Gang, Sing who desperately wants to become a member. These fight sequences demand the attention of any cinephile who claims themselves a fan of marital art cinema.

This film simply does not look like a Hong Kong film. Chow is no stranger to direction. Kung Fu Hustle tells the story of Sing, a wannabe gangster attempting to join the famous Axe Gang who during some of the early scenes seem to spoof Gangs of New York - look for a firework visual quote , a legion of black suits responsible for a series of gruesome murders and complete dominance over a 1940s Hong Kong. There was a simple story happening which made sense for what we were watching. I sincerely recommend this movie to those who still has the slightest hesitation whether you should watch this movie or not.
Stephen Chow truly understands kung-fu, in my opinion, and it a sure thing that he crazies about it. Three cheers for Chow Sing Chi! He stumbles into a slum ruled by eccentric landlords who turns out to be the greatest kung-fu masters in disguise. Not me, until I saw this movie.

There are a terrific number of effects shots in this film far more then I've ever seen in a Hong Kong production save maybe the terrible Wesley's Mysterious File and while I am disappointed at the lack of practical effects the impressive quality of them more then makes up for it. In 1994 Chow co-directed Love on Delivery and since then a number of other self starring projects and many of these projects are considered the best of his acting career. The scene with the two assassins playing that stringed instrument don't know the name of it in such a way that it kills was incredible. Some of the effects not only will have you in stitches, but also in shock and awe at the sheer incredibility of some of the scenes. Some argue that Stephen uses a lots of old jokes and routines in this movie that makes it a little bit weak on the script.
My eyes still hurt from wiping away tears of laughter.

Kung Fu Hustle not only reminds us of Chow's terrific comedic timing, it introduces us to his stunning visual eye and exhilarating action direction. The use of digital effects in this film are extreme. It borrowed or spoofed a bit from Spider-Man and The Matrix as well, which was a bit unexpected for this film, initially.
