Insane Kung Fu FARCE
20 August 2004 | by (london) – See all my reviews

They just don't make em like this anymore-and before you cynics say something cynical like 'Thank God', then proceed to crap on about how good Garden State is, let me tell you that this gem is what John Woo had fun with before he got too famous making Hong Kong actioners, resulting in the never ending recent Hollywood bashing for his overused gun play. Fact is, he should go back to making stupid farcical stuff like this- the plot is basically about a motor mechanic who accidentally gets involved with a famous film starlet and has to save her from bad guys who want to kill her to get inheritance money her father left her.

The last section kinda loses its pace ( the graveyard scene gets REALLY long in the tooth) but the way ROY CHIAO gets rid of the bad guys is real cinematic invention at work. And watching this guy who clearly doesn't know martial arts, take on a whole team of assassins three times(!) just adds to the silliness. But for me its all about the characters ( check out the blind hit-man with pingpong eyes and the kung fu master with the metal claw hand) .

These days cinema is too damn serious , farce especially is frowned upon and Comedy is unfortunately anything with Ben Stiller in it, but this is the stuff that Chinese do so well ( see Winners and Sinners and other classic 80s comedy) i bought this film on VCD from some Hong Kong E-bay outlet and as far as i know its unavailable until TAISENG video release it in the States. So ..... 7 out of 10 - not as great as Jackie Chan/Samo Hung but still damn funny.
