From walking disaster to Kung Fu master: it's a new comedy unlike anything you have seen before!

In the 1940's Chinese province of Guangdong, petty thief Sing (Stephen Chow) aspires to become a member of the notorious Axe gang, the fiercest, cruel and most widespread crime syndicate in the city. However, Sing is just a street rascal (trying to ignore the fact that his heart is actually in the right place) and so he ventures into the run-down Pig Sty Alley to prove his worth.

However, in attempting to extort money from the hairdresser Sing unwittingly exposes the plump landlady, her hen-pecked husband, the camp tailor and rugged coolie as martial arts masters in hiding. Coming to the attention of the Axe gang who want to clear out the apartments, Sing's actions have set off a relentless chain of events that brings the clans together in an explosive battle!

Stephen Chow continues his unique comedy style that first came to the attention of the West in Shaolin Soccer, mixing slapstick in the finest tradition of Buster Keaton; to marvellous martial arts choreographed by none other than Yuen Woo-ping (The Matrix, Kill Bill); to dance sequences with tuxedoed gangsters; to moments of genuine pathos concerning Sing's mysterious history involving a beautiful mute lollipop vendor...

Top 100 Books Reviewer

Stephen Chow does it again with another action-packed comedy with more kung fu than Chuck Norris could ever give you. Jackie Chan? Bruce Lee? Step aside. Chow's in town.

While not lending the same skills that Lee could back in his time, Chow manages to compensate by giving the viewer something to laugh at as well as drool at the immense fighting scenes. Kung Fu hustle, in my book, is an instant winner, and something to place next to Shaolin Soccer (not got it? Buy it!).

All of the fighting scenes have been very carefully choreographed and all of the camera angles used enhance the experience you're going to have when watching this film. The fights are most certainly NOT short-lived, and some scenes last a good ten minutes (something to rival the Matrix: Reloaded's Burly Brawl), with everything completely annihilated (i'm surprised the cameras survived!).

The humour is classic slapstick as well as some well-placed lines, but the humour does usually rely on the actions of the characters (be it doing something stupidly wrong, or just plainly being funny - dancing tuxedo gangsters anyone?).

The film was made in China, so the film's in Cantonese, but fear not, alike Chow's previous films, he's done an amazing job of dubbing all of the voices, making them sound believable, and not as if they were imported from Soho (which was what happened in Ong Bak - what a shame). There is also the choice of putting on Cantonese audio and English subtitles if that is what you prefer. Options like these always make the viewing that little bit better, to suit the needs of different people.

Definitely something worth buying. If not now, at least sometime!
Can't buy it? Borrow it! Yes, it's THAT worth watching.
You'll be in fits of laughter.


 Funny in every sense of the word.

One of my all time favourite films, great humour, great action, and that combination makes it a winner in my eyes.

If you are into Asian films, especially action and comedy I urge you to give this a try, Stephen Chow manages to back up his great film 'Shaolin Soccer' with this stormer of a film.

There's just something about Kung Fu Hustle - when you watch it for the first time, you are blown away by it's originality. The setting, characters and music are unique, while the story is simple yet charming. What really wins you over though, is the humour - this film is hilarious....even when watching it for the 5th or 6th time, I found myself in hysterics. Add to this some simply brilliant fight scenes, with the musical assassins proving a real highlight, and you have an original and immensely entertaining kung fu comedy that totally delights from start to finish, time after time!! Buy it now!!

 Another Stephen Chow Hit

| | See all dapperdan's reviews (75)

This is another great hit from Stephen Chow who created Shaolin Soccer which is another great movie and so is this one which is full of action and violence also it's a Matrix style kind of film so they do all of that dodging etc........
If you don't know what to expect well then i'll tell you
it's got lots of fighting with knives and swords and alot of Matrix style moves but kung fu style. Another thing that you might want to know that it hasn't got any comedy unlike Shaolin Soccer which is full of comedy. I recommend this film and Shaolin Soccer and there both worth checking out and getting hold of a copy.

 Absolutely Dreadful

I saw this film at the cinema, it was described as a "comedy-meets disney movie" ... not a great description. It was terribly gruesome, and quite crazy. Had it's moments where it made you laugh, but more at it than with it!
