Kung Fu Hustle

5 Stars

Tonight we saw Kung Fu Hustle. It was AWESOME! This one is definitely a must see. It has subtitles, but it’s well worth the read. Check out the trailer and decide for yourself. But if this is playing in your area, I highly recommend seeing it before it’s too late. I actually laughed out loud, which doesn’t happen very often.

Here’s the review from the SF Chronicle…

“This martial-arts spoof is destined to be the next “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” — a subtitled movie for people who don’t do subtitles. You don’t need to follow the words to enjoy the mayhem. In addition to starring as a wannabe gangster in pre-revolutionary China, Stephen Chow is the movie’s director, producer and co-writer. He’s obviously besotted with American cinema, borrowing from wildly divergent sources such as “Pulp Fiction” and “Top Hat.” Gang members actually break into a little soft shoe, dressed in top hats that would do Fred Astaire proud. It’s all incredibly silly but great fun.”
