Kung Fu (aka Kung Fu Hustle) (2004) (Hong Kong)

The official website (with English language) is here

Even the trailer has English commentary and subtitles!

Has anyone watched?

In the mainland China, the three day record (Thur. - Sun.) is approximately 50 million yuans (US$ 6.04 million). In the city of Hong Kong, the revenue for the three day record (Thur. - Sat.) is roughly HK$ 15 million (US$ 1.93 million).

My guess
-- If you like Shaolin Soccer, you will like this better.
-- If you do NOT like Shaolin Soccer, you will NOT like this.
-- If you like Stephen Chow's style (or kind of humor), you will like this movie.

Comments from a friend (NOT from me)
-- hardly any plot; too exaggerated; special effects overdone. but what else to expect from a stephen chow's movie? people might like the stephen chowness, but nothing else.
-- the only watchable kungfu scenes are those from the three guys (shi-er-lu tan tui; tie-xian quan; and e-lang-ba-guo gun).

Will I watch? yup ... when it is available here or on DVD.
