Movie Details

Kung Fu Jungle

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.

Watch this if you liked: “Ip Man”, “The Raid”

The Good, the Bad and the Wild:

• Donnie Yen doubles as action star and action choreographer, his touches on the fight choreography make the fight scenes very fast-paced and enjoyable to watch.

• The plot is nothing much to go by but the movie is saved by the actors, whose background in martial arts greatly help them with realistic portrayal. Even Michelle Bai, who has no prior training, showed dedication for her role as she spent two months learning how to use a Jianshu (straight sword).

• The cinematography has nothing much to offer, as the beautiful surroundings are more often reduced to mute backgrounds instead of being highlighted to further enhance the movie.

Trivia:

• The title changed from "Last of the Best", to "Kung Fu Killer", before finally settling on "Kung Fu Jungle".
