YesAsia Editorial Description

From top-selling artist to blockbuster leading man to blockbuster director, Taiwanese superstar Jay Chou has proven over the last eight years that he can do no wrong when it comes to moving units. After awards and accolades for his 2007 directorial debut Secret, Chou stays in front of the camera for his latest offering, the glossy basketball youth film Kung Fu Dunk. Released over the Lunar New Year to hefty box office receipts, this film is loosely based on the popular manga Slam Dunk, but with an added kick of kung fu fun choreographed by award-winning action director Ching Siu Tung (Hero, The Warlords). A well-known basketball and martial arts enthusiast himself, Chou struts his skills and then some more, thanks to gravity-defying CGI assistance. Hong Kong veteran Eric Tsang co-stars as a sinewy agent, along with Wilson Chen (Blue Gate Crossing) and Twins' Charlene Choi (Simply Actors), looking cute as a button as Chou's romantic interest.

Abandoned as an infant, Fang Shi Jie (Jay Chou) grew up in a martial arts school and has acquired himself some impressive fighting skills. He can also throw with amazing accuracy, a talent that grabs the attentions of con man Zhen Li (Eric Tsang). Unwittingly pulled into Zhen's hustling plans, Fang crosses the wrong people and gets kicked out of his martial arts school. Zhen then enrolls Fang into First University in hopes of turning him into a basketball star. After some quick training, Fang and team are tearing through the league to the championships, but some foes from Fang and Zhen's past have money staked on the game, and they're more than willing to play dirty to get their way.

Kung Fu Dunk is directed by Kevin Chu Yen Ping, Taiwan's commercial cinema champion of the 1980s and 90s with films like No Sir and Young Policemen in Love, not to mention Hong Kong wackfests like Flying Dagger. With Chu at the helm, Kung Fu Dunk lives up to its Lunar New Year film slot with some flighty, nonsensical comedy that wears its heart and silliness on the sleeve. Veteran actors Eddy Ko and Kenneth Tsang make welcome appearances, as well as Ng Man Tat and Leung Ka Yan who readily ham it up as kung fu masters.

Effectively Slapstick Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Personally, I liked this and when you get to the nightclub fight scene, albeit layered with juicy CGI effects, you can’t help enjoy the riveting action. You get a good bit of energised slapstick fight action, as Fang Shijie floor mops up all the bad guys. Certainly the biggest highlight from this action flick. The story is no more than a fun filled bit of nonsense otherwise, that really needs to be taken as lightly as possible (feather duster light would be about right). Its high school theme of college bad guys and Zhen-il’s team of hope battling it out (basket ball style of course) is like a cross between Sholin Soccer, comic strip manga and even some Superman 2, considering the three powerful mystical elders and Fang Shijie’s time warping finish at the Varsity v Big Bad Guys in Black university basketball competition. The repartee between hustler Zhen-il and Fang Shijie can be endearing and funny at times, too, cliches aside. The added wit gives it a pretty decent charm.

Everyone’s ‘likeable chum’ Charlene looks as lovely as ever, too, and reminding me of that Agent Yomiko Readman from the Japanese anime R.O.D. with her studious glasses and pigtails, and although taking a supporting part here its always great to see her. Charlene is certainly one of the nicest and likeable women on the planet, and I’m happy to see CC in anything with her personality. Still, I couldn’t help thinking that although playing the romantic element, Charlene’s character seemed more like Fang Shijie’s mum at the school sports event, egging her favourite son on. I could imagine her shouting, “Move your bloomin a**e!” if ever Fang Shijie wasn’t dunking enough points into the net. In Chinese of course, not My Fair Lady cockney slang.

The DVD is a superb two-disk set with a wealth of extras including English subtitled interviews (nothing to moan about there). No English subs to the making off sadly (well maybe a bit of a moan). So, okay, not a kung fu classic, but some exciting bits and plenty of entertainment to enjoy with that nice fella Jay Chou. Don’t approach martial arts connoisseur expectations, but do anticipate fun to fill a Friday night in with some pop corn (or biscuit dunks - whatever you fancy). If you like sport themed films certainly try Korean film “ Forever the Moment”.

Do not waste your money. Customer Review Rated Bad 0 - 0 out of 10
After the hugely successful Shaolin Soccer every producer/ director wanted to capture on the success of kung fu intergrated sports/ activities; such as kung fu mahjong, kung fu sweetheart and now kung fu dunk. Where as the first two mentioned provided mild entertainment this picture fails to deliver in every way.

Jay Chou has never been that great of an actor, with his wooden expressions but i still like the guy because i admit he is greatly talented in other departments, but having him star in a comedy is a complete misjudgment he does not have the screen charisma or dialogue (or the facial expressions) to be truly funny. With the comedy left to Eric Tsang and the rest of the cast (Charlene Choi and Ng Man Tat) it should be funny right. Wrong. Not once is the comedy not extremely exaggerated.

As for the Kung Fu scenes choreographed by Ching Siu Tung they are mildly entertaining if not wire assisted.
I say kung fu scenes but there is only one real fight in the film involving Chou taking on a group of henchman and Jay Chou handles him self really well. The basketball scenes are a different story the audience never actually witnesses Jay's martial arts skills in the court instead he is super human which makes the film incorrectly named.

Watch Shaolin Soccer instead dont bother with this.

Not Bad Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
The movie is full of action, Good looking men, did I mention Good looking men. Anyway it's about an orphan who is kicked out of his home, learns basketball and joins a team. The movie would have been better if not for the unneeded computer graphics. It's not bad just to watch for the action and the men.

Very poor Customer Review Rated Bad 1 - 1 out of 10
This movie is rated aload of my bollocks. First of all, Jay cannot even act and the way he makes it out as if he was a martial arts player in this, it is a no no and has no expression in acting whatsoever. I am afraid him and Charlene cannot act and I wouldn't recommend any Jay Chou fans or Charlene Choi out there, because it is just a waste of money. Please keep your money in your pockets and buy things to eat instead.
