Yet the storyline and character development was lacking.

The movie doesn't make sense at first, but it all makes sense in the end as all the pieces goes together.

I thought the scenes were pretty well put together, action was good and the comedy was cool too.

I love Kung Fu movies and there are not enough good ones out there. I know people love Jackie Chan, he's fun to watch, but all of his fight scenes look so choreographed. The kid is this movie is AWESOME! The fight scene in the bar is amazing! He is very fast and extremely fluid and when the scene was over I jumped out of my seat and cheered. Yes, this movie is kind of silly, but that adds to the charm and overall entertainment this movie offers. Movies are not supposed to be realistic. If a movie can take your mind on a mini vacation away from reality for 90 minutes or more it has done its job, and this movie does that.

This movie is classic fun in the vein of Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin soccer. It is a heart-warming story about two wanderers who help one another out in order to get fame, but end up with a lasting friendship instead. The Kung Fu is cool and the basketball team is a great showcase for their special skills. An overall good time, anybody hating on this movie is too serious as this is a light-hearted story infused with comedy and martial arts. Dunking makes me happy!

Format: DVD
An orphaned boy Fang Shi-Jie (Jay Chou, "Curse of the Golden Flower") grows up to be a student of a kung fu school. Shi-Jie eventually leaves the school, however, after getting involved with a brawl, and meeting a small-time, down-and-out hustler Wang Li (Eric Tsang, "Infernal Affairs" trilogy), who discovers the young Shi-Jie's talent as basketball player. This is how the story of "Kung Fu Dunk" begins.

"Kung Fu Dunk," which unashamedly borrows the concept of "Kung Fu Soccer," is in fact a hodge-podge of half-baked ideas that sit uncomfortably together. Director Yen-ping Chu throws in many jokes and actions, disregarding the storyline or any logics (OK, this is his style, right?), but the jokes and actions are just unfunny and unexciting.

For all you can see is those basketball players (including Chen Bo-lin and Baron Chen) passing and shooting helped by wire stunts. Four teachers of kung fu school arrive and are allowed to join the "game," which means doing kung fu fighting in the basketball court. Apparently one master taught his pupil how to "freeze" the time and rewind it, something Christopher Reeve's Superman did many years ago. And don't forget the subplot about the parentage of Shi-Jie.

"Kung Fu Dunk" asks us to embrace its chaos and enjoy it. I like chaotic comedy - "chaotic" could be anything from "The Marx Brothers" to "ZAZ" or Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker - but this chaos is not just hilarious. Stephen Chow successfully incorporated kung fu into soccer to great comedic effect. However, the kung fu elements (kicking, punching etc.) have no place in the plot (or the basketball court) of "Kung Fu Dunk."

The director gives it a try anyway, not knowing how to use the sports factors in comedy and action. The result is just a mess.

I was just looking for a movie to pass the time and came across this. Loved it! I thought it was very entertaining. Basketball and Kung fu? Awesome! I thought the scenes were pretty well put together, action was good and the comedy was cool too.

I've watched and enjoyed both Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, Kung Fu Dunk (Amazon Prime Video) is a mix of both worlds with basketball.

Overall I thought this movie is a guaranteed laugh-out-loud movie (plenty of gags all around) and great for the family who loves fighting mixed with comedy. The movie doesn't make sense at first, but it all makes sense in the end as all the pieces goes together. I love how this movie is so heartwarming and unpredictable. There are a lot of scenes though with smoking and drinking in this movie, that's about it if you're worried about what the kids are going to see but it goes with the comedy of this movie.

The rules (and real life physics) of basketball obviously does not apply in this movie, but it was still entertaining for me as the scenes also did not look computer generated to me. This movie reminded me a lot of the anime "Slam Dunk" which I assume they got their inspiration from there. The fight scenes are adequate, I thought it was not too much and not too little. Some scenes also does not make sense (seems cut off) as there were some stuff that was left unexplained and some fight scenes looked cut off as well as it looked like different takes stitched together.

In the end I highly recommended to watch and I wish there was more like this out there.

Format: Blu-ray
I can easily remember the hype that was built around "Kung Fu Dunk".

First the announcement of pop star Jay Chou playing the lead character and then word that the film would be based on the Japanese manga/anime series "Slam Dunk" caught the attention of many who were familiar with the series.

But then things changed and the next thing we heard is that the film would be like a "Shaolin Soccer" and feature Kung Fu with basketball. Needless to say, it sounds unusual but "Shaolin Soccer" was an enjoyable film that you just have to sit back and see what Director Kevin Chu and writers Kevin Wu, Lam Chiu-Wing and Anne Wang had put together. And the collaboration of Taiwan, Hong Kong and even mainland Chinese talent definitely raised the curiosity of fans of the various talent in the film.

VIDEO:

"Kung Fu Dunk" is presented in 1080p. For the most part, the picture quality looks very good on Blu-ray and much better than its DVD counterpart. Blacks are nice and deep, I didn't notice any aliasing or compression artifacts but for the most part, the PQ was very solid for this release.

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

Where the Blu-ray shines in PQ, unfortunately this 2008 Blu-ray release is missing a lossless soundtrack. Not sure why but "Kung Fu Dunk" is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 Mandrarin and English Dolby Digital 5.1. The audio quality is fine, but the fact that the audio is not lossless is a bit of a letdown, especially since the film has its share of action sequences. The Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1 track is good but the English dub is on par with a lot of the English dubs for Asian films these days. It's not my preference but I did re-watch the film in English and for the most part, it works.
