Kung Fu Hustle

Well, I am quite disappointed by the movie Kung Fu Hustle. I was thinking, with so many ex-Kung-Fu stars in this movie, they could have made a real kung-fu movie. Oh well, I guess they think CGI effect is cooler. To me, the CGI is quite a bit over the top. And... where is the actress? I think I saw her face for... 5 seconds? And she don't have any script either, because she is mute in the movie.

I still enjoys the movie. Like the other Stephen Chows' movies, it is quite funny (e.g. the knives throwing sense, the couple introdued themself as "Son Diu Hop Liu" in the casino, etc). But i think they tune down the Hong Kong style words jokes... maybe to make sure the internation audience understand the movie?

On the side note... don't think too many people know the landlady was trained by the same Master as Jackie Chan. She is the "third sister", with the nickname "Female bandit". Have not been in the movie for more than 20 years. Oh, she also appeared in an old James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun and saved Roger Moore :)
