What did I just watch?... Robots. Aliens. Time traveling. Kung Fu...
3 July 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Sure, "Kung Fu Traveler" was a cheesy movie. No doubt about it. I mean, with a storyline about mankind being almost eradicated by alien invaders, and the Chinese armed forces sending a robot and a woman soldier 200 years back in time in order for the robot to learn Southern Kung Fu to bring back to the future, in order to fight the alien overlords and give mankind a fighting chance.

Yeah, it doesn't get any more corny or campy that than.

But guess what? This actually worked, because the movie was cheesy enough to actually be enjoyable and entertaining. Yeah, it was one of those types of movies. Sure, the storyline was predictable and amazingly straight forward with zero surprises, but it was made watchable by the cheesy storyline.

Something that also worked for "Kung Fu Traveler" was the action and martial art scenes and sequences, because they were quite nicely choreographed and executed on the screen. And it was nice to watch the likes of Tiger Hu Chen fighting on the screen - despite him being a robot.

The CGI effects in the movie, for the robots and aliens were dubious at best. They moved in very stunted and awkward manners, which looked fake and looked like something from a 1990s computer game, truth be told.

While "Kung Fu Traveler" definitely was watchable, it wasn't an outstanding movie. I am rating it a very mediocre five out of ten stars.
