Warning: This is for those hard-core action or robot fans. If you are expecting this to be as explosive as Transformers, you are in for a rude shock. Kung Fu Cyoborg is actually a romance story with robots as its sub-plot. Now, with romance as its main plot, don't expect amazing and explosive action. Yeah, there are a few action scenes but they are not really fantastic, in fact, they disappoint. The rarely-appeared Wu Jing is the only one in the movie to use Kung Fu plus he barely use it, hence the title Kung Fu Cyborg.
The story: When it is production, people are saying that it would be the Chinese's Transformers. Indeed it is but it is obviously no match for Transformers. Transformers has a massive budget and Kung Fu Cyborg has a low budget. So there is a difference in the CGI robots. In Kung Fu Cyborg, you get cheap CGI robots fighting but at least they are entertaining. But when it comes to the story, it is where it is not good. The romance story tends to get a bit boring and the comedic scenes are not very amusing. There are no main action plot even there is no main villain. Action fans like me will be disappointed in lack of action. The romance plot starts a bit slow but the pace of second half of the movie seems to be faster.
Overall: It is not so bad but it is disappointing as it lacks of amazing action. When we hear the title, Kung Fu Cyborg, who does not think it will be fulled of action. On the whole, it may be disappointing but at least, some entertainment values are there. It is okay if you just leave your brain at home and not expect any amazing action scene.
