Brighton Wok, best low budget film since Bad Taste?
16 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After all the hard work put into this movie for the last four years Brighton Wok finally made it to the cinema. A fast paced roller-coaster of a movie packed with references to classic kung fu films, both obvious and subtle, and with an unmistakable British sense of humour that delights and surprises in equal measure. There is a surprising attention to detail and quality of production to this movie for its small budget, set and made all in Brighton and although at times the acting appears to be as though its just the directors mates and some random people off the street the movie never hangs around too long for this to be an issue. The pick of the acting bunch for me are the Trio who delve in and out of the movie to add a slight Shakespearian twang to the proceedings between acts. This is no spoof movie with laugh a minute gags, Kung Pow this movie is not. At times the movie is dark and sinister and with a stunning soundtrack, Ben Sarfas,it is emotionally embracing and captivating. So, is this the best low budget, made in a bedroom film since Bad Taste?
