Kung Fu lovers delight
9 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is amazing. The awesome fight scenes with the edited sounds on contact are almost enough. But there's more. See this movie. We had never laughed so hard watching a movie. Not for the most sympathetic of people. If you are not P.C. and enjoy Kung Fu flicks this will be on your shelf in no time. The fact that these 2 guys can fight to avenge their disabilities is incredible. These are real actors with legitimate disabilities. When they fight together they are a formidable duo and incite nonstop laughter. Lots of humor to be had and good life lessons as well. Teamwork is good. Always listen to the master in the basket. Crippled Masters is a masterpiece in that it will amaze you and leave you in stitches.
