The Hollywood Reporter by

With a delirious mix of the sublime and the silly, Hong Kong comedy king Stephen Chow Sing-chi has taken the kung fu comedy genre to new heights of chop-socky hilarity.


L.A. Weekly by David Chute

The movie refers glancingly to dozens of Hollywood classics, from "West Side Story" to "City Lights," but at heart it is a debt of honor richly paid by Stephen Chow to his martial-arts forebears and to the traditions that shaped his sensibility. His gong fu is the best.


Village Voice by J. Hoberman

Chow manages to have his cake and eat it too: Kung Fu Hustle is a kung fu parody that's also a terrific kung fu movie.


ReelViews by James Berardinelli

Viewers will discover that the film has something to offer nearly everyone, whether they are a novice or a black belt in kung fu cinema.
