Fun movie, but nothing out of the ordinary here...
12 June 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

First, let it be said, don't sit down to watch this movie with the intention of seeing a serious martial arts movie! This is a Kung Fu comedy with a sugar-coated love story to accompany it.

The story is about Phoenix who find out that her parents are Kung Fu masters when she turns 14, and she joins them at the secluded mountain temple to study Kung Fu. Then many years later, when she is all grown up, Phoenix runs into Dragon at work where she is assigned to be his secretary. Dragon is the man she believes is destined for her, according to the words of an eccentric monks told her when she was younger. But Dragon was the sole survivor of an attack planned by White Eyebrows and his goons are now chasing after him to kill him. Together with her huge hawk and father, Phoenix must protect Dragon while falling in love.

The story is actually really, really simple and silly, and it is very easy to follow. But despite this, then the story was actually fun because it was this silly. Of course it was helped along by the quirky characters and the hilarious huge hawk.

Hand on heart, then this movie wasn't amongst Cecilia Cheung's better movies. I enjoy her movies, and bought it because of her (although I do like Hong Kong movies quite a lot). I think I would have enjoyed this movie more perhaps 10 years ago, I think I just moved on from these kind of silly-storied movies by now. But still, as I mentioned above, the movie is not bad.

The fighting scenes in the movie weren't too bad, considering this being a Kung Fu comedy. And, of course, in the Hong Kong tradition, there is a lot of floating around with wires, but hey, that is what is expected from most Hong Kong martial arts movies.

"My Kung Fu Sweetheart" is fun to watch if you are accustomed to Hong Kong cinema, especially with the movies that came from Hong Kong in the late 1990s and early 2000s. And there were some good laughs here and there throughout the movie - I, personally, enjoyed the scene in the Zoo with the crocodiles.
