Kung Fu comedy, can't forget this film

To be honest, "Kung Fu" is really a movie that has been known for a long time. It took a while to find out and watch it carefully. The strange thing is that this film is similar to "Shaolin Soccer", "God of Cookery" and "Journey to the West" in my memory. "It's not the same, but it's a bit unfamiliar and familiar. Those bridges have become routines, but they are still much smarter than the current imitators and followers.

I have read a lot of analysis on the long shots of the chartered wife. When I really saw that each shot was linked to form a complete narrative line, the surprise brought by the careful planning still exceeded my expectations. And when the storyline gradually progresses and the identities of the two husband and wife are truly shown, recalling the previous scenes of explanations, it seems reasonable and well-founded. Ensuring the integrity and rationality of the story is the basic requirement that commercial films lack the most. We have seen enough stories without basis and logic, and this film 12 years ago has already told us how the story should be told.

As for Ah Xing played by Zhou Xingchi, it is a Zhou Xingchi-style "anti-diao attacking si hero". When he appeared on the stage, it was a tragedy of a small person. He had no parents, no love, and his only friend was driven away by himself. His lifelong ideal was to become a "bad guy" -- the ideal of saving the world was broken by street gangsters, so just kill people Be evil. He is like a city Ah Q, laughing at the people coming and going on the street, covering his incompetence and failure with "I'm your father", because he can't get recognition, so he hopes to find a sense of belonging in the "Axe Gang".

We all know the story after that.
In kung fu comedies, many people can only think of Jackie Chan for the first time, but Jackie Chan's fixed parts have been played as bad stalks. Will hurt or be hurt each other's crotch and so on. As a kung fu movie, "Kung Fu" not only shows various kung fu genres that exist in legends, but also uses comic-style exaggerated shots to show the attack effects in the moves-through reasonable exaggeration that meets the audience's imagination, winning A certain "laughing fruit".

In addition, as a comedy film, "Kung Fu" uses the "three repetitions" technique to the extreme. The most typical example is the bridge design of A Xing being accidentally injured with three knives. The effect of this "three repetitions" It has been used in many comedies, but Chen He's nose in "Detective Chinatown" is embarrassing, and Lin Yun's sea urchin in "The Mermaid" feels far-fetched.

Finally, I would like to say that the reason why Xingye is called Xingye is that in addition to his genius in director and screenwriting, we must not ignore his acting skills. When Ah Xing was caught in the nightclub, it wasn't just fear and cringe, but curiosity in fear, so even though Ah Xing was pulled by his collar, he still looked around and showed a smug smile, and then in the next Immediately admit it. This kind of treatment, I want to use the expression of Uncle Feng to make an evaluation
