      Sam Ho Film Comment Magazine Chow is a genius in generating extraordinary drama from the familiar. Nov 19, 2013 Full Review David Ansen Newsweek So disarmingly eager to please that only a stone-faced kung fu purist could object. Nov 1, 2007 Full Review Ken Tucker New York Magazine/Vulture Chow's movie may seem nutty on the surface, but its slyness, its dreamy unfolding of so many moods and genres, becomes intoxicating. May 12, 2006 Full Review Carla Monfort Espinof ... The grotesque parade of characters is as unique as it is hilarious. {Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 31, 2023 Full Review Kanishk Devgan Film Companion A hilarious, loving homage to cartoons, wuxia films and much more, Kung Fu Hustle, written, directed, and starring Stephen Chow, pops, sizzles and enjoys every minute as much as we do.

      Audience Member esse filme e pika quem não assistiu tem que assistir Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Blob 9 Stephen Chow's masterpiece, the action is mesmeric as it is hilarious, the narrative is told through distinct characters that bring this world to life. To keep it short, It's one of the best comedies and best martial arts films ever put on screen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/16/24 Full Review 巾斌 颜 值回票价,都是名场面,成人的小时候童话故事,哈哈,谢谢星爷 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/13/24 Full Review Zalika T I love this movie. It's one of my favorites of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review John L Just a masterpiece. Very occasionally there are movies where the director gets everything right. This is one of those movies! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Hargie M Proves that even pandas aren't the only ones who can kick butt with style! It's like if Jackie Chan and Bugs Bunny teamed up to fight crime, with a dash of Wile E. Coyote's luck thrown in for good measure. Get ready for a martial arts extravaganza that'll have you laughing so hard, you'll be dodging fists and giggles at the same time. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Read all reviews
