If you are in the mood for a great slapstick, physical, martial arts comedy, this is it! I love this film and it always manages to crack me up. It's co-written, co-produced, directed by and stars Stephen Chow. It's set in 1930's Shanghi China and over the course of the film, introduces a wide variety of quirky unlikely heros who help save the citzens from the evil Ax Gang. It's also about a tale of redemption for the lead charcter played by Chow.
It's loaded with over the top martial arts, hilarious offbeat charcters (the laundry lady is my fav lol), fantastic special effects and so much more! Excellent special features are also included, including a English dubbed version in addition to the Chinese language / English subtitled, for those of you who prefer one or the other. Personally I like having a choice because sometimes I don't feel like reading through my movies. Be sure and pick it up if you need a good laugh!
