      • Oct 08, 2017

        I had seen this when it was first released but never thought much of the film. I found the film for 50 cent and thought it was a talent connected with Jim Carrey, so why the hell not. The clear devotion is there but some of the jokes just miss, I'm just missing some of the inside jokes that many others love. I may revisit this one down the track but I originally had this film as a 1, so I've come a long way since my first viewing. The credits reveal how much went into this film and I think that will elevate the film for my next viewing. The film has a juvenile sense of humour which you will need to overcome to find anything of interest here. The film is heavily flawed but it is nowhere near the horrible film I remember and I can see why there is a cult following. 08-10-2017.

        Sort of funny I guess. Mostly just weird and stupid. Most of the characters aren't funny at all, and just make weird noises or talk in random accents. And this film drags horribly after about 45 minutes in. Good idea for a film, but this could've been a lot funnier with better writers.

        I withdrew after 30 seconds they started making jokes, that's how bad it was. The joke's are all too corny, all too stupid, and all too pathetic to even comprehend the reason behind the making of this anomaly of a film. It was so bad in every level that I'm embarrassed for the actors who'd shown their faces in this mirthless, pathetic, and abominable "spoof" that doesn't even pass as a spoof because a spoof supposed to re-create a film and turn it into a a funny one but this--I call this rape. This film just raped and disgraced the Kung-fu genre not spoofed it.

        Pointless, uninspired and above all awful parody of great martial arts films, Kung Pow is a film that is poorly conceived and has an awful, sloppy script to work with. I laughed maybe once during the entire length of the film, and once I was finished it, I realized that this was one of the stupidest films that I had seen. The film relies on bland jokes and crappy voice over, and yeah I know that's the whole point, but still, it's terrible. Even if the over exaggeration and bad dubbing is intentional, they could have made it funnier than this. This film is just bad. Kung Pow is a sloppy parody film that is lazy, uninspired and a total waste of time. I hated this film and thought it should never have been made. I just thought it was a pointless film that offered nothing anything funny or creative for the viewer. Seeing this was boring, and the result was a mediocre film that did not deliver anything funny. The humor in the film is more irritating than anything, and it just ends up making you feel made at how pointless this whole film is. The era of great parody films is over; Hollywood should stop making trash like this as it is quite unfunny, lazy and dull. If you want a great parody film, watch Airplane! That film is a classic and a perfect example of good satire. This, this is a sad example of a bad parody film that fails on every level. Avoid this if you're considering watching it. Watching paint dry was more hilarious than this.
