Kung-Fu Hustle

Last night I saw Kung-Fu Hustle, the latest film from Stephen Chow. I loved this move and will say right up fron that this is the movie that Matrix 2 & 3 wanted to be. I’m not going to spoil anything here but I will say that the fight scenes are amazing and creative. The story, while a little slow to start is pretty good, though it isn’t s good as Shaolin Soccer (Stephen Chow’s last film to make it here).

Thankfully, unlike Shaolin Soccer, this appears to be intact. Are studios finally learning to leave the goodness of Hong Kong films alone? I hope so!

If you like kung-fu movies, if you like comedies, if you liked the Matrix, if you liked Shaoline Soccer, go see this movie!
