Kung Fu Hustle


This comic spoof of some classic Hong Kong kung-fu movie has impressed a few critics. A wanna-be gangster moves into a poor neighbourhood, pretending to be part of a notorious gang. This works for a while, until some real gang members put in an appearance. But all is not lost, as the poor people are not as helpless as they seem...
