Aroview: Hong Kong superstar Stephen Chow trumps all previous efforts (and that's saying something) with this dynamic, bust-a-gut funny kung-fu western spoof.
Chow's delirious blend of low-brow genre and hi-tech mastery reaches its fullest potential through the simple story of a weak-willed shanty town who put up resistance to the gangsters and corrupt officials. Outrageous in scope and stunning in execution, this takes the sight-gags to such mind-boggling extremes, one wonders how much further the boundaries can be pushed.
4 stars (Very Good) A fun comedy that takes all the great elements of Shaolin Soccer and improves the formula. The gangsters are great, the music is fun, the comedy is a great East-West mix. Well worth checking out.~Tom H
