    I just saw 2 days ago. It's really not that violent, like, not gory or anything, I mean, it has its action, but nothing that made me cringe.

    That said, the movie is totally radical otherwise and I really enjoyed it.

    Saw it several months back.

    Fairly ambivalent towards it, really.

    No, not disgusting violent, but when they cut off the Gang Leader's leg and the beating given to the landlord by his wife, I'll admit, I was stunned. I'm not finish with it yet, (I want to save some for tomorrow... at work.)
  5. I just saw it 2 days ago. Very interesting stuff. Definitely amusing.

    I guess I'm one of the few that thought this "film" was a total waste of time. For me, I rate it as "The Dumbest Movie Ever".

    i'd check it out if woody allen hired a crew to do the voice-over work and worked in a secret egg-salad recipe

    Wasn't this the same guy who did Shaolin Soccer? If I'm right about that then I definitely want to catch this one at some point.

    The House of Flying Daggers is real good...check that one out. It's not silly like Hustle though.

    I did like Kung-fu hustle...I thought it was funny.

    I'll wait till they do the remake with Jackie Chan.
  13. Is the style of this movie anything like Shaolin Soccer? I watched that a few years back and really liked it. Also, is it in Mandarin, or Cantonese/other dialect?

    If you really want to see violent movie from the east, check out Ichi The Killer! Brutal stuff.

    I looked up the Chinese characters and apparently they mean "Kung Fu". How original.

    For me, it was. I guess it's humor was lost on me. I will surely say that if it wasn't the dumbest, then whatever was worse I must have repressed in my memory! :p
  17. Try looking up the characters independently. That's always entertaining. :)

    And by the way, is "Kung" the Cantonese version of "Gong"? Or just the Americanization?

    I finished it today... Best movie ever! Makes me glad I don't waste money on American flicks! I usually lose interest in a movie after a half-hour. I watched this completely and will watch again! In all, a good day's work! Next Shaolin Soccer!

    Dudes..you so gotta check out "Ong Bak"...the film itself is pretty standard "chop sockey" stuff but the lead..Tony Jaa is absolutely in..facking..credible..seriously this guy makes Jackie Chan, Bruce lee, Jet Li etc. look like arthritic grandmothers...

    And not a wire or bluescreen in sight during the fight scenes.
