Kung Fu Hustle

Directed by Stephen Chow

Hong Kong comic superstar Chow follows up SHAOLIN SOCCER with an even bigger hit in this deliriously silly and warmly affectionate Kung Fu parody. A wannabe gangster and his sidekick bring the wrath of the ruling Axe Gang upon the hapless poor inhabitants of rundown Pig Sty Alley. Chocka with sight gags and one-liners as well as spectacular martial arts action (fights choreographed by Yuen Wo Ping), KUNG FU HUSTLE is a giddy treat.’Like Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton meet Quentin Tarantino and Bugs Bunny.’ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
