YesAsia Editorial Description

Donnie Yen in a throwback kung fu extravaganza! If ever there were a match made in heaven, this is it. After a summer that saw the inimitable martial artist/actor spend much of his time in period garb, Donnie returns to the present with Hong Kong Film Awards Best Director winner Teddy Chen's (Bodyguards and Assassins) action thriller Kung Fu Jungle. The film, made as an homage to Hong Kong action movies, boasts a supporting cast that includes Wang Baoqiang (Lost In Thailand), Charlie Yeung (Cold War), Michelle Bai (As The Light Goes Out), Alex Fong (Overheard 3) and Louis Fan (Ip Man 2).

Ha Hou Mou (Donnie Yen) is a martial arts teacher who works at a police academy. He is jailed when he accidentally kills a man during a duel, but three years into his sentence, a ruthless martial arts master begins challenging fellow kung fu practitioners in a series of duels that inevitably end in deaths. Hoping to shorten his sentence, Hou Mou volunteers to help the police with the investigation. Just as he's getting closer to the truth, Hou Mou suddenly goes on the run. What is he planning to do? And who is responsible for the murders?

Professional Review of "Kung Fu Jungle (2014) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)"

December 16, 2014

It's a Kung Fu Jungle out there. Apparently. Donnie Yen returns to badass form with this Teddy Chen-directed and EEG-produced martial arts film featuring a few noteworthy details alongside plenty of crowd-pleasing DONNNNNIEEEEEE action. Once again, Donnie gets a made-to-order character in Hahou Mo, a modern-day kung-fu master who's righteous and wise and possesses only a minor anger problem to mar his otherwise insurmountable scads of awesome. Oh yes, he's also a prison inmate, but his incarceration (he volunteered for his time in the joint) is actually proof of his kickassery. This is a Donnie Yen that's free from goofy shtick and wannabe-inspirational mawkishness, and he can still destroy whole rooms of people if they so much as look at him wrong. This Donnie is large, in charge and not to be messed with. If you're a hardcore fan (especially one that resides in the West), then Kung Fu Jungle is the movie you've wanted – provided that you care about action waaaaay more than stuff like story, character or dialogue.

Oh, super bonus: The non-action stuff isn't all that bad. Granted, it's still more generic than exceptional, but little in Kung Fu Jungle embarrasses, which is a massive step up from that Iceman thing that happened some months ago. When we first meet Hahou Mo, he's turning himself in at a police station after killing someone. How super righteous of him! Flash-forward some years and a mysterious murder has Inspector Luk Yuen-Sum (Charlie Young in a token female role) stumped. However, after hearing about the crime on the prison TV and stomping multiple men in a sweaty prison brawl, Mo requests a meeting with Yuen-Sum. He reveals that the murder victim was a martial arts master and offers to help in the investigation in exchange for a furlough, though he does keep a few cards close to his chest. Besides helping fight crime, Mo hopes to protect his longtime love Sinn Ying (Bai Bing), and he may know a little more about the killer, semi-crippled martial arts upstart Fung Yu-Sau (Wang Baoqiang), than he's letting on.

Kung Fu Jungle possesses some narrative cleverness that makes its generic "cops chase martial arts baddie" story better than it should be. Besides obscuring Hahou Mo's motives (don't worry, he's really a super good guy), the script offers a martial arts movie structure as Fung Yu-Sau takes on master after master while the cops follow in hot pursuit. Even better, each throwdown between Fung Yu-Sau and his targets allows for different martial arts styles to get a spotlight – and many of the faces coming and going throughout the film hail from martial arts movie lore. Kung Fu Jungle is an open valentine to the kung-fu movie genre, and features cameos by noted actors, action directors and filmmakers, from Yuen Cheung-Yan and Mang Hoi to David Chiang, Sharon Yeung Pan-Pan and long-retired Golden Harvest founder Raymond Chow. Even late personalities like Simon Yuen and Lau Kar-Leung appear via TV, along with Jackie Chan who for some reason couldn't appear in person to give Donnie props. Directors and other supporting filmmakers also show up in fleeting cameos. If you can identify everyone, EEG will give you a prize.

The film's status as a knowing tribute helps excuse its flaws, which include but are not limited to dodgy CGI, stock characters and strange plot developments that don't really work. At one point, Yuen-Sum uses the order of the crimes to clairvoyantly deduce where Yu-Sau is storing the spirit tablets of his intended victims. What? Also, the cops are pretty idiotic throughout this whole mess, leaving only Hahou Mo as the one who can deliver True Justice™. And deliver it he does, in inimitable righteously-glowering Donnie Yen style, though the Yenster does lay off the preening thing this time around. In response, Wang Baoqiang acts up a sweaty storm as Fung Yu-Sau, but his extreme histrionics are a good thing. Wang has the physicality and moves (he trained with the Shaolin Temple) down, and even when he's grimacing and overplaying the menace, his eyes transmit acres of emotion. Despite looking like a goofy emo kid, Wang Baoqiang has the complete package: He can do drama (Touch of Sin), comedy (Lost in Thailand) and even esoteric oddball stuff (Mr. Tree). Kung Fu Jungle is just a stroll in the park for him.

In many ways, Kung Fu Jungle is really Wang Baoqiang's show, since he actually gets more fighting screen time than Donnie Yen does. When Donnie does cut loose, though, you get what you paid for. The action here is good stuff, with strong impact, varying styles and less of the MMA found in Donnie Yen's recent films. Highlights include a big opening brawl at the prison, where Donnie takes on up to twenty men, and also the ending, which pits Donnie versus Wang Baoqiang in a super-long fists, kicks and weapons throwdown in the street. Surprisingly enough, the final fight actually delivers suspense in that it seems reasonable that Wang Baoqiang could actually defeat Donnie Yen – a far cry from the usual one-sided beatdowns Donnie has subjected Collin Chou and others to. How magnanimous of him! Overall, Kung Fu Jungle is not a special film but it's a solid genre flick that should be well-received by those looking for good action with few pretensions or distracting chaff. Sound like your cup of tea? Then viva Donnie and viva his fanbase, because Kung Fu Jungle is for you.

January 28, 2015

Modern-Day Wuxia
A tortured lone wolf rises above his physical disability and unfortunate circumstances to become a martial arts master, and then challenges the established grandmasters of different kung fu forms, one by one, in duels to the death in his quest to become the best in the martial world. Sounds like a great wuxia adventure, but bring that same setup to the present-day, and what you have is a crazed serial murderer in an urban Kung Fu Jungle.

Despite his slight physique and gentle real-life persona, Wang Baoqiang proves his wily, Shaolin-trained worth as the antagonist Hahou Mo, an obsessed martial artist who believes kung fu is for killing. In many ways, Kung Fu Jungle can be considered more Wang Baoqiang's film since his character drives the story and gets more duels in, but of course, the hero of our wuxia world can only be Donnie Yen, lethal man of integrity. The action superstar plays a martial arts master and former police trainer who has been serving time since accidentally killing an opponent in a duel. Recognizing Hahou's motives and dueling pattern, he negotiates his way out of prison to aid the police operation, while possibly harboring some secret motive of his own.

Pitched as an homage to old-school action movies, Kung Fu Jungle certainly does deliver in the action department. The film even goes as far as to separate out the forms for each duel, with Hahou Mou determinedly moving down his hit list of masters specializing in fists, kicking and weapons, played by Yu Kang, Shi Yanneng and Fan Siu Wong, before eventually clashing with Donnie. The film's awesome final duel on a night road amidst oncoming traffic is a thrilling watch. Though still stylized for modern action cinema consumption, the fighting scenes in Kung Fu Jungle offer a far purer display of martial arts sparring than your usual explosions-filled action movie.

The duel setup ensures that the action takes center stage, as fighting is the means and ends of the story. Teddy Chen directs in straightforward manner, most other plot devices and developments are minimized, and no one tries to overextend themselves on the acting so there are few unnecessary distractions besides maybe Charlie Young's slight miscasting – but it's nice to see her onscreen either way. If having Donnie Yen back in form after Monkey King and Iceman isn't enough, Kung Fu Jungle also troops out a long fan-service parade of cameo appearances from action and wuxia veterans, including John Chiang, Bruce Law, Mang Hoi, Sharon Yeung, Yuen Cheung Yan and more. Behind the scenes, Donnie Yen is joined by Stephen Tung and Yuen Bun on action direction. Hong Kong action movie fans can't ask for much more than Kung Fu Jungle.

My Thought on Kung Fu Jungle Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Great fight scenes! Less wire work and less stunts in the choreography would have made this movie even better.

Not so bad! 6 1/2 [out of 10] from me.
