    One of the best

    Easily one of the best movies I have ever seen. It keeps you guessing right up to the end while leaving many clues. However I wish that there was actually english beeing spoken, the whole film was subtitled so if you can't stand reading subtitles don't get this. Kung Fu hustle has all the qualities of a perfect movie and I am a very tough film critic

    Unmissable Kung fu, Authentic Kung fu, Fantastic Kung fu!!

    Being a chow fan myself, I must say this is by far the best work he's done. I was absolutely captivated and immediately at home in this very foreign place. This film is so strangely retro and yet tangible. Stephen Chow's name has been around the Chinese cinema for more than twenty years. His special style of dry humor is not only known but also recognized by Chinese viewers as his trademark and uniqueness. It's only until recently with the release of Shaolin soccer did people around the world started to take notice of this Asian pop icon. But when we thought it couldn't get any better, he surprised us with this masterpiece, Kung Fu Hustle. I have never laughed so hard, yet come away feeling as if I had been uplifted. The effects are fierce, and yet organic. The characters are strong, vivid and effective. The imagery and magic of the story and scenery and amazing overwhelmingly inspired soundtrack blend. It's like this film picks you up and never puts you down, doesn't miss a beat, and never spends a fraction of a second too long in any one spot. Viewers will find themselves drawn into the fantasy world of Kung Fu with funny, fascinating characters that blow people's mind away. References to Forrest Gump, The Matrix, Silence of the Lambs, traditional Chinese Woosha novels can be found in many scenes. I also find myself laughing so hard in several parts. Most of the jokes are easy to understand for they are usually short phrases or body movements. This allows general audiences around the world to get pass the cultural or language barrier and enjoy the atmosphere it's creating. The action scenes are also visually stunning according to the design by famous action designer Yuen Ho Ping (Responsible for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and The Matrix trilogy). But being a Kung Fu watcher, I personally thought it would've been even more superior with less CGI. Overall I give it 5 stars. It's probably the most entertaining Chinese film to date. This one will sure save a spot for Steven Chow in the history of Asian cinema.

    Funny and Exhilating

    This film is a superb mixture of comedy, drama, violence and ballet. It should get at least one Oscar for Cinematography this year.

    Do the hustle

    With fights choreographed by Yuen Woo Ping, directed and starring Stephen Chow, and slap-stick humor abound, can this movie go wrong? No, this movie delivers on all that it says it will and more. It has great fight scenes, good CG effects, and just enough humor to not take itself too seriously. This movie rocks.
