    Never heard of Kung Fu Hustle, is it a decent film or just a martial arts showcase?

    It's Stephen Chow's next film after Shaolin Soccer and is his homage to the 70's martial arts movies he grew up watching. It's been breaking box-office records in China and looks to be a big international cross-over movie. It's second only to Hero in the all time records in Asia, overtaking House of flying Daggers for second place. The kung fu is choreographed by Yuen Wo Ping of Matrix and Crouching Tiger fame. It's action packed and laugh a minute. It really is grade A.
    Order it up if it sounds remotely your kind of thing.
