Fast paced...
31 December 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Chances are that if you like the Jackie Chan style of movies that you will find "Kung Fu Man" (aka "Kung Fu Hero") enjoyable as well, because it is in the same category. The movie is fast paced, action-packed and fun for the entire family.

The story is about a boy having been kidnapped who happen to end up with Ping, a local storekeeper. Unable to communicate with one another and with the kidnappers in hot pursuit, Ping is trying to return the boy back to his parents.

As to be expected, the storyline opens up for a fast paced cat-and-mouse-chase across the town in which where Ping lives. And directors Ying Ning and Cheung-Yan Yuen managed to put together not only a good story, but also an action-packed ride for the audience to enjoy.

Tiger Chen (playing Ping) and Mengjie Jiang (playing the English teacher in the town) did good jobs with their given parts. And I will say that Tiger Chen also is quick on foot and has some impressive martial arts skills. Arman Darbu (playing Christopher) was a nuisance with his constant screaming.

If you like Asian martial arts and a good wholesome family-appealing movie then you should perhaps give "Kung Fu Man" a chance. I found it by sheer random chance and I was genuinely surprised with the movie. I found it entertaining in a manner similar to Jackie Chan movies.
