Stephen Chow's follow-up to SHAOLIN SOCCER ups the over-the-top action quotient by about three zillion percent. The story is set in 1930s Hong Kong, with Chow as a shaggy-haired, would-be bad guy named Sing, who gets caught up in the middle of a war between the top-hat-wearing Axe gang and the hard scrabble inhabitants of Pig Sty Alley. Chow--who wrote, produced, and directed--doesn't step in as the star here for quite a while, letting the comic duties fly in a myriad of directions: a landlady in curlers (Yuen Qiu) has a yell that can flatten buildings; people get kicked across courtyards and through walls; musician assassins whip ghost sabers from lyre strings, and a mental patient in pink flip-flops named "the Beast" (Leung Siu Lung) catches bullets in his fingers. Buoyed by SOCCER's box office success, HUSTLE uses bigger production values and a dizzying amount of CGI-enhanced martial arts (imagine Bruce Lee vs. Bugs Bunny in THE MATRIX). It's full of references to other films and filmmakers, revering spaghetti westerns and '70s Shaw brothers movies a la Tarantino's KILL BILL (fight choreographer Yuen Wo Ping worked on both films). It also pays sly homage to the works of Wong Kar Wai, D.W. Griffith, Sam Raimi, Jean-Luc Godard, Stanley Kubrick, and Akira Kurosawa. Raymond Wong's inspired score matches each cinematic reference with the appropriate cue as the camera circles and swoops around the sprawling sets. This is a real treat, more than a great action film or comedy, it's a great film period, and one that set box office records in the East.System Requirements:Running Time 99 Mins.Format: BLU-RAY DISC

Expert Review Kung Fu Hustle - DVD Review
By: Nicholas Schager filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 7/20/2007 7:28 PM
Stephen Chow’s Shaolin Soccer was a unique genre potpourri in which sports films, The Matrix, and science fiction anims all irreverently coalesced into a frantically funny tale of victorious underdogs. The filmmaker’s signature cartoon craziness – an idiosyncratic mixture of Buster Keaton’s physical comedy and Dragonball Z’s lunatic action – likewise permeates Kung Fu Hustle, a similarly ridiculous medley of gangster pictures, musicals, and martial arts films. ...read the full review

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"[An] insanely entertaining smash-fantasy burlesque....You don't just watch it, you ride with it, laughing all the way." 04/15/2005 p.60

Los Angeles Times
"For all its extreme cartoonish violence, KUNG FU HUSTLE is a surprisingly sweet and charming movie." 04/08/2005 p.E8

New York Times
"The showstopping fight sequences are choreographed by the legendary Yuen Wo Ping and given an extra jolt of nutty inventiveness by some cheerfully crude digital effects." 04/08/2005 p.E21

Sight and Sound
"That one can indeed call KUNG FU HUSTLE delightful reflects its wonderfully compelling, high wire sense of dreamy knockabout..." 05/01/2005 p.64

USA Today
"HUSTLE's approach to a simple good-vs.-evil plot is eccentrically exuberant." 04/22/2005 p.4E

Rolling Stone
"[Chow is] a one-man comedy parade....[He] turns his characters into live-action cartoons and then, miraculously, makes it all ring true." 04/21/2005 p.124

Uncut
"[N]o one's ever captured the escapist thrill of a four-coloured splash panel as well as Chow does here." 07/01/2005 p.128

Movieline's Hollywood Life
"[I]n terms of physical timing, comic ideas and snap-crackle-pop filmmaking it buries any 10 other American comedies you can think of." 09/01/2005 p.101

Uncut
Ranked #14 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "[A] blast of exuberant, over-the-top cinematic madness....Ridiculously entertaining." 01/01/2006 p.82-83
