Set in Shanghai, China in the 1940s, the story revolves in a town ruled by the Axe Gang, Sing who desperately wants to become a member. He stumbles into a slum ruled by eccentric landlords who turns out to be the greatest 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.
In my opinion this is the best Chinese comedy kung fu movie yet to be made. I’m not very familiar with the previous work of the director Stephen Chow except for Shaolin Soccer but this flick has everything to entertain any movie fan.
Both the humor and the drama made me weep like a small girl, even thou I’m a guy almost at my 30’s. The impressive camera techniques and the story sure made this a phenomenal viewing experience.
Sorry Jet Li & Jackie Chan – None of the Hollywood movies has ever touched me like this movie did. I recommend this movie to be watched with friends in order to share the feeling of joy and laughter. We’ll be waiting for a sequel – don’t let us down!

This is one of the best movies of 2005 and it’s not even in English. I thought the framing of jokes in this movie were top notch.
The movie takes you on a journey of street gang called the “Axes” who have established their dominance in society. The movie takes a lot of risks and uses a lot of expected comedy in a whole new way. This movie is really good. I laughed the whole way through. You forget about the subtitles after about 5 minutes. There is so much non-verbal acting that you don’t even need the subtitles at point to understand what they are saying.
Steven Chow is well on his way to being the next big thing in America. He is already big in Asia. Look out America, this is a fresh new addition to our cinema goers.
