Editorial Reviews

Set amid the chaos of pre-revolutionary China, small time thief, Sing, aspires to be one of the sophisticated and ruthless Axe Gang whose underworld activities overshadow the city. Stumbling across a crowded apartment complex aptly known as "Pig Sty Alley," Sing attempts to extort money from one of the ordinary locals, but the neighbors are not what they appear. Sing's comical attempts at intimidation inadvertently attract the Axe Gang into the fray, setting off a chain of events that brings the two disparate worlds face-to-face.

The exotic original score by Raymond Wong is complemented by the film's classical pieces, notably Sarasate's acclaimed "Zigeunerweisen" and Khachaturian's famous "Sabre Dance."

4.0 out of 5 stars great CD, but incomplete... September 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the soundtrack released to the U.S. Just so you know, the soundtrack sold in Asia features a few more songs. Most notably missing is a song preformed by Huang Sheng Yi, called "Zhi Yao Wei Ni Huo Yi Tian" which comes toward the end of the movie. It might be my favorite song in the movie, and it's too bad it's missing from the U.S. soundtrack.

...Absolutely perfect!

As a collector of various movie soundtracks, there are many times when I am utterly dismayed by how unrelated they are to the movies they are supposed to complement.

The Kung Fu Hustle CD, however, is far from any of that! I watched this movie four times in the theater, and every time, the music just mesmerized me from start to finish! The movie was great, and the music was even better!

I quickly ordered the soundtrack from Amazon.com, and when it arrived, I was far from disappointed. This CD is fantastic! It does not leave anything out. What you hear in the movie is what you hear in the CD from beginning to end. The tracks are even in order of which they appear in the movie!

If you enjoyed Kung Fu Hustle, then the soundtrack is definitely for you. Go forth! Purchase the soundtrack, and prepare to be pleasantly entertained by the delightful music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Soundtrack August 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you have seen this unbelievable movie, then you know how incredible the music is. It matches the mood of the movie and everything the previous reviewer said I agree with. It has great sweeping scores with an extremely cool "oriental/chinese" sound and presence to it. I mostly bought it for a few cool songs I fell in love with when I saw the movie and the whole album is great. You will recognize a few of the songs used in a lot of other chop socky/martial arts movies and you'll really enjoy having them along with all the other great music on this soundtrack and it goes without saying, but if you haven't seen or bought this movie yet, get it. We need to encourage Stephen Chow and support him in his endeavors to make more great movies instead of the same old rehashed formulaic, cookie cutter, boring(need I go on?)"Hollywood Entertainment" fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like the movie, must buy! February 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Actually this is amazing. I watched the movie on TV very recently and came to amazon.com immediately for this soundtrack. I am living in Japan and luckily got this CD for reasonable price. Pity that I had been spending 10 years without knowing the movie and its music. Especially, this album includes several traditional Chinese music arranged for the movie and they match the picture so well. The sense of Stephen Chow, the director who chose them is wonderful. However, my most favorite tune is #2, the one dedicated to the Axe Gang. A loger version of this title appears at the end of list, but it has vocal and chorus which seem quite unnecessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks ever July 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kung Fu Hustle is an excellent movie. One of the biggest contributing factors to its excellence is its soundtrack. The music on this soundtrack is some of the best traditional Chinese music I have heard.
