About the Movie
Kung Pow: Enter the Fist is a movie within a movie, created to spoof the martial arts genre. Writer/Director Steve Oedekerk uses contemporary characters and splices them into a 1970s Kung-Fu film, weaving the new and old together. As the main character, The Chosen One (Oedekerk) sets off to avenge the deaths of his parents at the hands of Kung-Fu Legend Master Pain. Along the way, he encounters some strange characters, one of which is a cow trained in the martial arts.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: To imagine the life of Harry Potter as a martial arts adventure told by a lobotomized Woody Allen is to have some idea of the fate that lies in store for moviegoers lured to the mediocrity that is Kung Pow: Enter the Fist.
Rotten: A processed comedy chop suey.
Rotten: Hopelessly inane, humorless and under-inspired.
Rotten: Naturally, much fun is made of the poorly synchronized dialogue inherent in kung fu flicks, but the gag pales with repetition, especially since Billy Crystal and Robin Williams did it better years ago.
always makes me laugh.Its a pretty humorus comedy.
This movie is really great and it's a shame that itunes won't let you buy it.
The comedy harkens to the films of Leslie Neilson (Spy Hard, Wrongfully Accused, Mr. Magoo), with pop-culture references and random acts of slapstick. It's funny, but to many it'll appear as stupid. Which it rightfully is. The special-effects of adding Steve into the old martial arts films is impressive, but the other SFX moments are just too cartoony to be even considered... well... cartoony. The acting is okay, considering Steve does like 90% of the voices. The writing is okay, but the ending stinks. The directing... wait... there's directing here? Overall, it's a real good film to watch on a Friday night or if you want to sleep to something. It's funny, and a guilty-pleasure. Worth a rent/worth a buy.
