      Written before the release of the 3D version

      On January 15, 2015, three days later, the 3D version of "Kung Fu" was finally re-released. I heard that it was going to be released last year, but there has been no news for a long time. Now I finally look forward to it. My wish is to have a feast for the eyes that night.
      Thinking of this, I felt very excited. I happened to see that there was a special episode of "Kung Fu" in "Long Bin Dahua Movie", so I couldn't help watching it again. feel.
      This is my favorite of Stephen Chow's...

      best interpretation

      A generation of masters may have the beauty of sports, but this film is still the best movie to interpret "Kung Fu" so far. It seems to be a light-hearted spoof, but in fact, there are needles hidden in the silk.

      - The Axe Gang wears suits and ties, a Western style, the police station washes the floor, does not keep their word, and bullies women
      - Phnom Penh glasses man, looks like a middle-class civilization, but bullies the bottom, and finally dates Buck Tooth...

      Only Stephen Chow, who is also a director and screenwriter, is a thorough Stephen Chow

      Kung Fu is really an underrated great movie. Stephen Chow's personal style is strong and unified, and his attention to detail is almost perfect, which can go down in history. When I was a child, I only thought it was funny to watch Zhou Xingchi, but now I can understand his romance and tears. I always feel that Stephen Chow is another Chaplin, always using the camera to pay attention to the hardships and joys of little people. If you don't have a deep insight into the tragedy, if you don't...

      The feelings before watching the 3D version and the complaints after watching the 3D version

      The 3D version of "Kung Fu" is finally released, and here I share the little thing between me and this movie in the next ten years.
      Written before watching the 3D version (written on January 15 on the day of its release)
      At the end of 2004, I was 8 years old and "Kung Fu" was released. At that time, I was in my hometown in Jilin City, Northeast China. There was only one theater, and the Jilin Railway Culture Palace released this film. I clearly remember that there was a big poster at...

      Look at kung fu again, it has been ten years

      The re-screening of the 3D version of Kung Fu is not so much going to the cinema to watch the 3D version, but rather wanting to relive Zhou Xingchi's classic works in front of the big screen.
      Sitting in the movie theater, all the fighting lines are so familiar. In fact, we all know very well: Feng Xiaogang will be cut off by an axe while running; When the knife is thrown, he will throw it on his shoulder, and then the two flying knives will become his rear mirror when he escapes and runs....

      Kung Fu is undoubtedly the best movie directed by Stephen Chow. The commerciality and artistry are well coordinated and very engaging! The martial arts scene that combines Chinese populism is very interesting, and the music is also very surprising. The story continues the usual mode of small people becoming British. The viewing experience of the film is great and classic in all...

    Movie plot

    The story takes place somewhere in southern China in the 1930s. The gangster axe gang bullied the local market, and bribed the local police to escape the charges.
    Ah Xing (played by Stephen Chow) dreams of becoming a gangster all day long, but is not strong in will and can do nothing. I had to pretend to be the axe gang and ran to the slum that the gang had no time to take care of-the pig cage city to blackmail some money. Unexpectedly,...

    Evaluation action

    Chinese action movies are usually full of serious and religious colors, but Zhou Xingchi runs counter to this serious genre. He reminded the audience in his own way that film art not only shows nobility and sacrifice, but also one of its traditions  (The New York Times film critic Scott) .
    "Kung Fu" spent three years and tens of millions of dollars was not in vain, not inferior to Hollywood. After the refurbishment, an endless stream...
