In Shanghai during the 1930s, Brother Sum, the leader of the Deadly Axe Gang, exercises control over the city, openly killing anyone who gets in his way. One day, two troublemakers, Sing and Bone, come to Pig Sty Alley impersonating members of the Axe Gang to gain respect. Their plan fails, and Sing’s antics attract the real gang to the scene. In the massive brawl that ensues, more than fifty gangsters are defeated by three tenants who are Coolie, a laborer, Fairy, the clothing retailer, and Donut, the noodle chef. Coolie, Fairy, and Donut turn out to be incognito martial arts masters. and thats where the movie begins
Kung fu hustle is one of my favorite martial arts movies of all times. I rank it right up there with lord of the rings and the hobbit trilogies. This one movie is the greatest combination of action and comedy hong kong style that I have ever seen. What makes it so good is that you can see it over and over and it never gets old…
