5.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre, stupid and the funniest thing I've seen for years!, 10 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Kung Pow - Enter the Fist [2002] [DVD] (DVD)
THE STORY:
The Chosen One must fight evil Master Pain (aka Betty) in order to have revenge on the Evil Council for the murder of his family. On his journey he meets many weird characters; a perverted martial arts master, a 'sadistic psycho bitch', a kung-fu cow and a chick with one boob, among others.
WHAT'S GOOD:
Every genre has it's spoof. Detective films have 'The Naked Gun', sci-fi has 'Spaceballs', action flicks have 'Hotshots' and now b-movie martial arts pics have 'Kung-Pow'. It's funny moments are too many to repeat here but some choice ones are the scene with the gopher-chuks, Betty kicking ass to the sound of MC Hammer and Wimp Lo's assertion that "I'm bleeding, so that means I win" and it's all done with the really bad dubbing that makes Hong Kong movies great. You'll find yourself falling in love with Tonguey and I defy anyone not to splutter out their drink when they here the cry "That's a lot of nuts!" Plus, the DVD has the strangest and funniest extra ever; a panicked thumb (I won't even try to explain). Finally, any DVD that's title screen tells you that you're very attractive has got to be worth buying.
WHAT'S BAD:
This movie isn't big and it isn't clever, it's only worthwhile to people who are prepared to put aside their intellect for a while and just wet themselves laughing. Also, the narrator can be a bit annoying, but I don't care.
"Thank you Ling, you've helped me reach the next level.
