Storyline

A remote monastery in China has trained a talking gorilla, King Kung Fu, in the ancient art of kung fu. Having mastered his fighting skills, King Kung Fu is sent to America to demonstrate the power of Chinese martial arts to the West. As he is travelling through Kansas, a pair of bumbling reports see KKF and decide he can be their ticket to fame and wealth. Of course, the gorilla gets away from them, and soon everyone is chasing the Shaolin simian. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

2 thumbs up for this movie
8 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw someone do a movie review on this video on a website and I looked everywhere to find this movie. I couldn't find it. So one day I was at a yard sale and saw they had this video on VHS. I bought it, though I had a DVD player, not a VCR. So I went to three different electronic stores and got to best buy. They only had a VCR connected to a TV. The TV was 400 dollars. This was in 2001 when VCRS were out dated and shitty TV's were a lot of money, ANYWAY, I bought it and saw the video. I was stunned. If you saw this movie you would know what I mean. Its old so right off the bat I loved it. I'm into that stuff. Also this movie is hands down one of the best movies I have seen. It has that old 1970's "Kung Fu" stylized action. And I just enjoyed every minute of this video. So I would like to thank James Rofle for recommending this movie.
