Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Stephen Chow (director and star of Shaolin Soccer) is at it again with his newest action-packed and comedic martial-arts adventure, Kung Fu Hustle. From wildly imaginative kung fu showdowns to dance sequences featuring tuxedoed mobsters, you've never seen action this outrageous and characters this zany! With jaw-dropping fight sequences by Yuen Wo Ping (famed action choreographer of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The Matrix), Kung Fu Hustle will blow you away! In a town ruled by the Axe Gang, Sing (Stephen Chow) desperately wants to become a member. He stumbles into a slum ruled by eccentric landlords who turn out to be kung fu masters in disguise. Sing's actions eventually cause the Axe Gang and the slumlords to engage in an explosive kung fu battle. Only one side will win and only one hero will emerge as the greatest kung fu master of all.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With Hustle's release on 2,000 U.S. screens this week, Americans get to see what's so funny about Chow. The laugh's on them for not noticing him before.
Fresh: So disarmingly eager to please that only a stone-faced kung fu purist could object.
Fresh: Chow's movie may seem nutty on the surface, but its slyness, its dreamy unfolding of so many moods and genres, becomes intoxicating.
Fresh: Kung Fu Hustle is destined to be the next Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon -- a subtitled movie for people who don't do subtitles.
Stephen Chow has done it again! I LOVE the music used in the Ax Gang's dance scene. It's awesome how Chow uses the same actors. Kwok-Kwan Chan is H.O.T.!!!! MAJOR Bruce Lee fan... If you liked this film, you'll enjoy _Shaolin Soccer_. It's enjoyable for everyone whether you like soccer or not. If you like Kwok-Kwan Chan, then you'll like him in _The Legend of Bruce Lee_. MAN, I wish they would show that in the US!!!!
I can't believe they added this. A great comedy from Stephen Chow. Highly recommend. Apple please put more Asian movies on iTunes but don't dub them!
