I'm giving it two stars for the amazing footage of the fights
30 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

First let me give you the good news. The fight and training scenes are quite good as is the footage of what appears to be a real monastery and cast of dozens in training. If you're a lover of Kung Fu, you'll agree. I trained in White Crane style for years. That's where the good news ends. Bad news is the script flows as smoothly as sour milk. Acting? No. But there's Kung Fu. Often lacking any reason other than to build up to the next fight, entire scenes appear of little value to the overall movie. The screenplay is choppy, from lighting to camera angle. Dark and grainy, angle unchanged for too long, zooming in on nothing of importance. Add to that a musical score that has that old porn movie quality, volume raising suddenly for seemingly no reason, and the genre of music quite odd for this kind of movie. Reminds me of the art house flicks from the French and Italians. Dialogue is at times smooth, by mostly comical, with more than a few mumbles left in, either slipping past the director and editors, or to save film. An example of the acting is how when one character finishes a line, the other pauses a moment, awkwardly long, and suddenly bursts out with feigned energy, smiles appearing more like a grimace. Sometimes, in response to a light-hearted line, others respond with overdone laughter. Each time my attention began to wane, wonky acting and dialogue with that porn music gave me a great laugh. This movie actually reminds me of classic Kung Fu movies from earlier days, poorly dubbed and shoestring budget. The classics, of course, can be excused. Perhaps it's only artistic genius is that Last Kung Fu Monk has managed to recreate the now farcical old time feel in an effort to make a serious martial arts contender. Shoot for serious, end up at funny. Now that's comedy.
