      Audience Member It's a fun movie. Love Baron Chen here Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member an epic tail of redemption and sport, this movie is the next Ben Hur. an instant classic, better than sex Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Neither the Kung Fu is attractive nor the Dunk is in any way pleasing. It's a laughable disaster. One of the worst Chinese films ever produced. There isn't one element in this film that's remotely entertaining or enlightening. It has a shallow, stereotyped story with unimaginative action pieces deliver by waves of poorly delivered performances from the cast members. Most scenes of this abomination are unwatchable, and the rest are juvenile at best. If a person encounter this film, please run away quickly. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member It's totally incoherent and its story structure is lackluster, with story arcs coming and going without proper build-up, but the basketball material and action is slick and fun to watch regardless. The film is as ridiculous as the title suggests, and its meant to be enjoyed that way. Good for a one time watch, but nothing more. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun and awesome! So great. Funny, very funny. Unique, clever and perfect for what it is and intends to be. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought this movie was well-made. The movie showed some originality and good pace. I was really entertained, the martial arts was just stylized really well. And the movie was also well done and the concept was just really cool.
