Give Us Your Opinion of This Movie!

My Review:

This parody takes itself a little too seriously. Gotta give Stephen Chow kudos, though – he wrote, directed and starred in this movie, and the guy has got the moves! Sometimes it goes over the top, and comes off like a live action cartoon. Other times the message is a little heavy handed. For chop-socky aficionados, there are several inside jokes. For the rest of us, we’re left shaking our heads. I think I would have liked Kung Fu Hustle a lot more if it were about half an hour shorter.
