A vicious killer (Wang Baoqiang) is going around Hong Kong killing top martial arts opponents. When convicted killer and Kung Fu expert, Xia (Donnie Yen) hears this, he offers to help the police catch the killer, in return for his freedom. However, the canny and lethal killer eludes them again and again. Although the latter made it quite clear that Xia would be his ultimate challenge, Xia refuses to be drawn into the life and death duel - until the killer threatens the women he loves most.
Kungfu Jungle is the BFI Film Festival 2014 Official Selection. In addition, this movie climbed all the way to the top of the box office chart last weekend in both Singapore and Malaysia!
When you put Donnie Yen in an action movie, it will NEVER EVER go wrong. The movie was SUPER INTENSE from the start to the end. It was so thrilling I didn't even visit the toilet at all. To those that don't know, I always visit the toilet at least once when watching a movie.
Other than the splendid acting skills by all the actors involved, this film is special as it also pays tribute to all the Chinese martial arts filmmakers who have or still work in front or behind the cameras. This movie definitely re-energize Chinese martial arts movie and has the potential to go international. Splendid Fighting Scenes!
However, as much as I thought this movie is thrilling and filled with actions (I LOVE ACTION MOVIES!!), I feel that the entire story line is a little weak and it lacks surprises and twists.
Shall not spoil the movie for you guys, but for those that are fans of martial arts or love action movies. I definitely recommend this show to all of you!
