Silly antics and Good Action
24 June 2009 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

Kung Fu Scholar is a comedy action starring Dicky Cheung. He wants to learn kung-fu, but his mother wants him to go to school. After losing a game with his mother, he's forced to attend school. Liu Sin-Hoi (Aaron Kwok) also attends the same school. The school's headmaster (Mau Tat) has a niece Ching Ching (Chow Wai Man) who's also been dropped off at the school by her parents. School has many regulations: One being you cannot court a woman. But guess what, it's love at first sight for Man Chui (Dicky Cheung) when he sees Ching Ching. There's a band of henchmen after prince eight, and Man Chui and Sin-Hoi gets entangled in their affairs.

The story is a combination of silly antics, and occasional kung-fu action. Hong Kong cinema was coming of age in the early '90s where they maintained constant quality in their production. This movie would have been a dud otherwise. Aaron Kwok and Chow Wai Man were in their 20s, and they look great. Part of the attraction of these movies are to see your favorite stars in action, and this movie is no exception.

Not a particularly significant movie, but entertaining none the less.
