hilarious kung-fu comedy
18 May 2004 | by joel-sullivanSee all my reviews

I stumbled across a subtitled version of this while channel surfing in Taiwan. It had me rolling on the floor.

The movie reminded me of some of Jackie Chan's more humorous work, but with even more emphasis on humor without any loss of martial arts. The humor is quirky (not predictable or trite) and generally pretty clean, along the lines of Princess Bride or Office Space... but the jokes keep coming much faster than in those two movies. There is not much strongly "adult" humor; although the movie is about a killer and there is a scene where a woman mistakenly believes she has been raped, this stuff is done very tastefully (in my opinion).

I highly recommended this for anyone who likes fast-paced, slapstick (but sophisticated) comedy--and doesn't mind subtitles with an occasional grammatical error.

The movie is pretty much gore-free. Although it does have a lot of fighting, the fighting scenes are done in an intentionally unrealistic style.
