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.

I've seen this movie 6 or 7 times. Fun, awesome action, over the top effects, touching story. I've never shown it to someone who didn't love it. Watch it in Chinese if you can handle the subtitles but English is okay, too. Cannot recommend it enough!

with this version, however, my only problem with it is that it didn't include the Cantonese version. We have cantonese in our house and it would be much better in Cantonese--but It is fun--none the less.

Some of the action may be too much for young kids, but if they like action movies, it's definitely worth watching.

Wholesome, family-friendly fun. You may need to struggle through some subtitles, but this is way better than any of that Air Bud nonsense.

Our story begins with great cinematography (only early in the movie), an orphaned infant and a note. The child is raised by a kung fu master and trained with all of the clichéd wisdom behind the yins, yangs and qi ("chi") of the universe and one's self. After the untimely death of his master, Fang Shijie (Jay Chou) grows up as a kind-hearted yet semi-rebellious kung fu student.

Fang gets involved with some of the wrong people and gets expelled from his kung fu school. But his skillful aim is quickly discovered by friendly hustler who directs his hands to basketball. It turns out that Fang's skill in kung fu translates well, making him a 100% free thrower even from half court...that is, when there's no pressure or opposition. His greatest opposition is from the team captain, who has a drinking problem that is presented in a rather family-friendly way.

Fang needs to learn the basic skills of the game and teamwork to be able to utilize his world class arm. Through the support of his teammates and hard work he develops into a fine player.

Strong elements of comedy and classic kung fu theater action-isms mesh well with modern, stylistic camerawork. The fighting and stunts are good (not great), and are not the focus of this movie after the first act. This movie is about basketball and teamwork.

The greatest thing about this movie is that Fang's skill is never met with arrogance. He is always humble. He wants to be an appreciated member of the team in addition to showing what he can do. He also helps his team captain "defeat" his drinking problem.

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.

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!
