Kung Fu Killer Review

Let’s be honest – when it comes to martial arts movies, the action is always front and center. If you’re a director, you better be loading your film with graceful choreography, a fury of thrown fists, and plenty of flying mid-air kicks that defy the laws of gravity. We love to watch master craftsmen kicking the absolute tar out of each other. And that’s fine, because unlike gratuitously savage action flicks with bullet-ridden corpses, martial arts is all about technique, beauty, and presentation – but even with that said, some resemblance of a rich story is necessary. It can’t be all sizzle and no steak, but that’s unfortunately what happens to Teddy Chan’s latest genre attempt. Kung Fu Killer is a movie that has plenty of the aforementioned kung fu killing, as advertised, but there’s a serious lack of plotting that makes for a very one-sided experience.

The Cameo-Packed Kung Fu Killer Could Kick Expendable Ass

The Cameo-Packed Kung Fu Killer Could Kick Expendable Ass
More than just another action vehicle for Ip Man superstar Donnie Yen (who, even in his early fifties, seems capable of taking down all of the Expendables), director Teddy Chan's glossy thriller pays tribute to martial-arts cinema by casting enough Hong Kong industry legends to rival the cameo count of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. It's a pity, then, that it's an undeniably bland film in style and story, despite a few elaborately staged fight sequences. Incarcerated for involuntary manslaughter, self-defense instructor and all-around badass Hahou (Yen) is given a chance for freedom if he helps the police chase a clubfooted serial killer (Wang Baoqiang) who has been targeting martial-arts masters. All the victims are being dispatched by th...

Donnie Yen Beats Everyone In the First Trailer for Kung Fu Killer

  • Cinelinx
There's a new martial arts flick coming out starring Donnie Yen...and if that sentence doesn't get you excited, then you haven't watched the incredible Ip Man movies. He's a slick martial artist and his fight scenes in movies are pretty spectacular, which you can get a hint of thanks to the first trailer for his new movie, Kung Fu Killer! Come inside to check it out!

Admittedly, being a long time martial artist myself, I'm a sucker for these kung fu movies. While realism mostly goes out the window, on the whole, they're still a lot of fun and feature great fight scenes and moves. Donnie Yen is one of the biggest names in the genre right now (though not in Hollywood circles), and there's good reason for that. If you haven't seen his previous films (especially the Ip Man movies), then you're missing out. But you can at

Interview: Michelle Bai talks ‘Kung Fu Killer’

  • Nerdly
In Kung Fu Killer, Ip Man star Donnie Yen plays martial arts instructor Hahou, working with the police to bring down a vicious killer targeting various kung fu masters to prove himself the greatest. Amidst a variety of situations and settings – a film studio, a dinosaur skeleton, a tattoo parlour – each fight scene is more crowd-pleasing than the last. If it all sounds like a deliriously old-school martial arts movie given a deliriously 21st century twist, there’s a good reason for that – that’s exactly what it is!

To celebrate the films release we sat down with one of the films stars, Michelle Bai, to discuss all things Kung Fu Killer

How did you become involved in the movie “Kung Fu Jungle” (aka Kung Fu Killer)?

Kung Fu Killer Review

Director: Teddy Chan.

Cast: Donnie Yen, Charlie Yeung, Baoqiang Wang, Bing Bai, Deep Ng, Alex Fong.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 96 minutes

Synopsis: Hahou Mo (Yen) is released from prison in order to help police track down a serial killer targeting Kung Fu masters.

Kung Fu always deserves a place a on the big screen. It’s very easy to ignore the actual movements of a well choreographed fight, as unlike dances we’re mostly concerned with what the eventual outcome will be. Seeing it on the big screen allows for big moves to be more visible, without the necessity to slow everything down. There’s something that kung fu and martial arts films need though, and that’s a plot…arguably.

Kung Fu Killer knows it needs a plot, even though the main thrust is very simple indeed. Donnie Yen is released from prison to track down a serial killer. The

Kung Fu Killer arrives in 2015

Following the announcement that Kung Fu legend Donnie Yen is bringing his latest opus, Kung Fu Killer, to this year’s London Film Festival, Signature Entertainment has confirmed two spiffy bits of news. One, a wider release for the martial arts saga when it comes to cinemas on February 20th and two, it heads for DVD and digital on February 23rd. Also starring Michelle Bai and Charlie Young, Kung Fu Killer is directed by Teddy Chan (star of Infernal Affairs 2) but notably also features key action scenes directed by the legendary Yen - a real draw to martial arts fans and a contributing element to one of the kung fu blockbusters of the year. The only downside to all this is that it wont be until the new year. But we are patient, well sort off...dammit! Synopsis: Yen (Ip Man, Blade II) stars as Hahou, a former martial

Review: Kung Fu Jungle Sees Donnie Yen Pay His Respects Then Kick Some Ass

Donnie Yen plays a convicted murderer sprung from jail to help track down a serial killer targeting martial arts masters in Teddy Chen's appreciably nostalgic action thriller. While Yen wisely gifts the lion's share of the fighting to opposite number Wang Baoqiang, Kung Fu Jungle also serves as a reverential ode to the local industry, and something of a swan song for Donnie as Hong Kong's foremost action hero.Ha Hou Mo (Donnie Yen) is champion of Hong Kong's most respected martial arts sect, but turns himself over to the police after accidentally killing his latest rival. Three years later, the fatal beating of a martial arts master inspires Ha to demand a meeting with investigating officer Luk Yuen Sum (Charlie Young). Revealing that he knows...

New Trailer For Kung Fu Jungle And A Wang Baoqiang Featurette

We have a couple of treats for you from the upcoming Donnie Yen flick Kung Fu Jungle, directed by Teddy Chan. We have a new trailer, as well as a featurette with Wang Baoqiang. Both are impressive in their own right and give a taste of what is to come, even if it is in little snippets. I think what I find more impressive is that featurette with Wang Baoqiang. Let's be honest here: When you talk about martial arts in Hong Kong and Mainland Chinese cinema, his name is not one of the first few you name off. Yet, he studied martial arts at Shaolin Temple for six years and, golly, is he holding his own against Yen. ...
