I would never profess to know jack shit about martial arts or martial arts movies. I’ve never gotten into them whatsoever and never really got the draw to them. I do admit that my favorite Kung Fu type of movie – and one of my favorite movies – is BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA and, like this, it’s more comedy than serious. But this movie here, I LOVE it – it’s hilarious all the way through and features very impressive Kung Fu choreography, sweet, sweet slo-mo fight scenes, people flying around all over the place and hilarious dialogue. If you haven’t seen this, you totally should because it rocks my lame ass, but don’t take it seriously for one second – because it doesn’t take itself seriously and it’s good clean fun.
You know, fuck it, I never put videos out here because, quite frankly, I don’t really know how to mess with them – the size usually bothers my OCD – and usually the quality is so SHITTY that it’s gross but, the scene depicted above is so awesome, let’s put it out here for you:
Did that get your toes to tappin’? Did that get you in the mood to get your groove on? I, as a rule, do not commit public indecencies any longer so I don’t dance, but if I did, that’s how I would do it.
In the big city, everything is run by the tuxedo clad Axe Gang who kick ass and kill everyone. But over in the slums, in Pig Sty Alley, Landlady runs the show – in her rollers and nightie. There’s quite a bunch of characters in Pig Sty, Landlord is her cheatin’ husband, Rabbit Tooth Jane, Donut, the overly caricatured homosexual Tailor, the Barber who can’t keep his pants up and his ass in them, the Strong Guy and a kid who poops on the floor. They are all WAY over the top and absolutely hilarious. Eventually, our lead – Sing – rolls into town. He wants to be a member of the Axe Gang so he acts up all over the place and eventually gets hustled out of there by the Landlady.
Not to be put off, Sing comes back later to kill Landlady (which is a pretty funny scene) and eventually starts a huge fight between the Axe Gang and three Kung Fu Masters hiding among the slums, minding their own business. That fight is all kinds of awesome and the choreography is brilliant. I don’t want to go into the details of the entire plot but this thing kicks all kinds of ass. There’s magical (and deadly) music, more hidden Kung Fu Masters that you would never expect and a HUGE Matrix style one-man-against-hundreds fight that rocks ass. If you haven’t seen this – I would recommend you change that. Chop chop!
