Kung Pow! Enter the Fist (Widescreen) [Import]
Writer/director Steve Oedekerk (The Nutty Professor and Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls) creates an off-the-wall comedy and a new martial arts genre that substantially alters dubbed action footage from a 1970's martial arts picture with a brand new twist in the story line and altered dialogue. The story follows The Chosen One (Oedekerk) as he seeks to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of the evil and seemingly indestructible kung fu legend, Master Pain.

Kung Pow was perhaps the funniest movie right up there with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it is complete nonsense! You think that all the dubbing is horrible?? It's supposed to be that way! All the idiots that hate the movie make stupid comments, they don't get the big joke. It's supposed to be totally idiotic. Therein lies the comedy, the complete insanity of it.
But I will say this, the baby scene and the cow fight where just embarrasing to watch. They are perhaps the worst parts of the movie. But otherwise all of the original stuff and the new stuff that Steve made is pure comedic genius! Many scenes HAD to be toned down in order to match the grainy texture of the original Tiger & Crane Fist movie.
The DVD extras are amazing! There is a "What where they really saying" audio option in which you get to see what the actors where really saying before they got dubbed over (includes audio from Tiger & Crane Fist and the funny stuff the new cast said). There's even a "Lost Book on Tape" audio option, in which a English man says all the lines with hilarious results! There is so many DVD extras, it's a very good deal for only $14 (though I got mine for $10 at a Wal-Mart, MUCH better deal). The deleted scenes are awesome.
This is perhaps the best spoof of kung-fu flicks just because of the pure insanity!
The best part is, that many people didn't get the joke, and make fools of themselves when they comment on this movie and whine about the parts that were SUPPOSED to be bad and stupid.
Please, rent this movie, and just shut your mind off.
If you enter a film like this with a bad attitude, like most of the critics out there, you'll hate it. If you enter it with an open mind and the willingness to laugh at a group of really stupid yet really clever jokes, you may find it to be the funniest comedy that you've seen in a long, long, time.
I give "Kung Pow! Enter the Fist" a very solid 8.0 out of 10.0
As far as the plot goes basically an evil Chinese uh.. guy named Master Pain (later he calls himself Betty) has killed an entire Japanese family looking for a member of it called the Chosen One, who is the infant of the family. After a stupid and not-so-funny sequence of the baby kicking his ass they flee, and the baby winds up on his own. He travels and grows up and fights people on the way, all in search of the man who killed his family. He goes to a weird old man named Master Tang to train him and help him find Master Pain. He finds him, there are many pointless scenes following- inclding one spoofing the Lion King, and then a big battle between the Chosen One and Betty. Using his sacred gift (a tongue with a face on it) the Chosen One defeats Betty and that is the end of that. Stupid yes, but I promise that if your not a real tight-wad, you'll be amused by this movie.

My husband loves this movie! It works great, gave only 4 stars because it will only play on our laptops since it didn't say it wasn't for our region code so won't play on our dvd... Read morePublished 26 days ago by AllyRenae
Was extremely disappointed with this DVD. When I went to watch it, it said on the screen that it wasn't compatible to play on any DVD player I had in the house. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Ashton Desjardins
