I went to see an advance screening of KUNG FU HUSTLE on the Sony lot. It was a fun movie. Set in China in the 1940s, the story is about a hapless wannabe gangster (Stephen Chow) who aspires to become a member of the brutally notorious “Axe Gang.” Other characters include an obnoxious landlady (complete with ever present hair curlers and a cigarette dangling from her lips) and her frail husband who surprisingly exhibit extraordinary powers in defending their turf—kung fu style. The film is fast, furious and colorful to watch. The fight sequences are amazingly well orchestrated. The violence is very much like something you would see in a Wile E. Coyote & Roadrunner cartoon. All in all it was an entertaining and fun ride.
