On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
16/16 Reagen Sulewski Better when it takes itself seriously. Highly annoying otherwise.
24/85 Kim Hollis I smiled the whole way through this film. Stephen Chow's slapstick-y stuff may not be for everyone, but it's sure for me.
59/166 David Mumpower The more serious second half of the film is night and day more enjoyable than the goofy slapstick first half.

Digg Button  
Stephen Chow follows up his slapstick comedy hit Shaolin Soccer with this action comedy set in 1940s Canton, China.

Sing, an unlucky wannabe gangster, has to find a way to rise above his lack of skill with a knife and to prove his mettle to become a member of the infamous Axe Gang. The Axe Gang is working hard to rule the most coveted territory in town - a sacred street protected by a motley-looking crew. Even though the denizens of this sacred street appear to be simple, ordinary characters, they are actually highly skilled kung fu masters.

After numerous encounters with various thugs and finally a terrifying competitor known as the Beast, Sing finally overcomes his self-doubts - at which point he comes to realize he is in fact the greatest kung fu master of all, and it is his destiny to protect the sacred street. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
