Including references from Looney Tunes, The Blues Brothers, The Shining, Spiderman, The Godfather, Raging Bull, and a host of others, Kung Fu Hustle is by no means a serious work. It’s a spoof of the industry. Unlike most spoofs, though, it does so as a means of paying homage. It makes fun in order to show its love. With countless homages to previous kung fu movies, the appearance of once-famous kung fu heroes, and the use of many popular tropes. one could definitely argue that it was made to show the greatness of the genre.
Or it’s just a farce. We really couldn’t decide. Either way, we hope you enjoy!
