Review: Kung Fu Boogie

Kung Fu Boogie is more of a comedy than a martial arts movie, centering around PigSty Alley, a slum building too poor for the gangs to mess with until the central character shows up pretending to be from the baddest gang of them all, the Axe Gang. When the trouble hits the fan, several unlikely kung fu masters crop up and mayhem ensues.

The Axe Gang reminded me of a cross between the Crazy 88s in "Kill Bill" and the Butcher's Gang in "Gangs of New York". I'll have to use them in a game. ;)

This movie isn't for everyone... in fact, it's not for most people. It's sub-titled, the CGI effects are cheesy and there are some things that are probably hilarious in China we won't get in America. But I had a lot of fun... I (and the small audience) laughed a lot.

Overall rating: 3 of 5 flying monkeys.
