Now go away or I will taunt you a second time!
4 February 2002 | by (Florida, US) – See all my reviews

French wit at it's finest is all there really is to say. The universal social struggle between the proletariat and abusive bureaucratic command is elegantly adapted to the setting of a 1950's kung-fu flick. The dense anarchist dialogue leading the vintage visual imagery raises a couple of questions: "Are the French really 'that' clever?' and "What the hell was the original film about, anyway?" A film hijacked, re-scored, and redefined by an outrageous blend of humorous and intellectual banter is by all means a whole new creation, and in this particular case, a genuinely successful venture. As the rich, comical narrative rips through your gut with the fine blade of a kitana, the visual then steps in, well equipped with an arsenal of fight scenes, to remind you that you are watching an authentic cheesy kung-fu film after all....................enjoy.
