Kung Fu, another small-person movie

Judging from the plot alone, this movie has indeed achieved ups and downs, one heavy over the other. In the opening scene, the police were beaten and led out Feng Xiaogang; Feng was killed and led out the Axe Gang; Xingye and his younger brother broke into the slum and led out the three masters who were hiding here, and the Axe Gang was beaten; the Axe Gang invited two masters in black for revenge; The people killed the three masters, but led a pair of great people to rent the public rental wife; the renting public renter cleaned up the axe to help the boss, and the boss hired the first master from the mental hospital; the first master fought against the renting public rental woman, mistakenly mistaken Xingye's Ren and Du's two veins are opened up, making him rise from the ground to become a top master, defeating the first master, and the whole film ends.
The whole film is a bull-puller jumping up one after another to compete with the previous bull-puller. All kinds of martial arts stunts with the taste of Jin Yong and the Matrix have come one after another, which is fascinated by the eyes, and carefully mentioned in the throat. Finally, Xing Ye finally got rid of the old pervert, and the movie ended before he let go of his heart. Although the plot of the lollipop girl was specially arranged to try to make the story a little warmer, and by the way, I would like to explain the growth experience of Xing Ye, but how I look at it, this plot is blunt and redundant.
However, the plot at the end has a distinct personality of Zhou's: back then, he used a book of "Martial Arts Secrets" to deceive the beggar who cheated his childhood star of 10 yuan, and he used the same method to deceive another kid who was sucking a lollipop. The metaphor of this open ending is that, like the previous Stephen Chow movies, this story is also a story of a small person. Little people's dreams, little people's bitterness, little people's persistence. In the film, the pictures of Xing Ye's childhood practicing martial arts, which are explained in black and white, are also unforgettable. The childhood that will never return, the pure and uncontaminated eyes, and the dreams of the future that I once had, all returned to my heart at that moment. This subtle touch is the most touching aspect of Zhou's films.
The martial arts design of this film is very imaginative, and in some places it can be said to be exaggerated. For example, the sound of the guqin can kill people like a sword, the first master can shoot his own head with one hand and hold the flying bullet with the other hand, and the power of Xingye can penetrate several layers of walls like a cannonball. It can be said that these plots are imaginative, but I feel that there are some elements of exaggeration. But these are innovations, and from this point of view, they are valuable.
In any case, this movie made us laugh, let us relax, and even moved us a little. This is enough.
