Movie Review: Kung Fu Hustle (E)

Plot Outline:

Set in 1940s China, the film portrays a young man (Stephen Chow) who wants to be a gangster with the notorious ‘Axe Gang’ just because being good didn’t work for him. KFH includes other characters like the protagonist’s fat-lazy sidekick, harp-playing killers, a frail looking beast, a hamlet’s domineering landlady and her husband and some of the hamlet’s inhabitants who are all apparently Kung-Fu masters!

KFH is yet another Chingi martial-arts movie with flying that defies all laws of Physics. The audience can find some action sequences resembling the Burly Brawl of Matrix Revolutions and some dialogues from Spiderman. One is left wondering whether some of the scenes are to be enjoyed as Action-sequences or pure-comedy.

Considering Chow’s track record of Shaolin Soccer (2001), he seems to be adept at confusing viewers between Action and Comedy. Performances can be rated as ‘decent’ from the comical angle. Although SFX is executed neatly, the similarities with Matrix make it seem exaggerated. Unlike Matrix, which was a dream world, Chinese stuntmen simply don’t seem to accept physics. Can someone explain me why every other guy in a Chinese movie is a Kung-fu master?

Rating: 2/5 – Action or Comedy? Don’t get confused, it’s comedy.
