Kung Pow!: Enter the Fist

Kung Pow!: Enter the Fist



Writer, director, and star Steve Oedekerk lampoons the martial arts genre with this action spoof that digitally mixes new scenes with poorly dubbed footage from the vintage 1976 film Savage Killers. Oedekerk stars as "the Chosen One", a kung-fu prodigy even from the womb, who grows up to seek vengeance on the evil, legendary "Master Pain" (aka Betty), who murdered his parents. Along the way, he is aided in his quest by the kindly, wizened Master Tang as well as Whoa (Jennifer Tung), a karate queen with a cleavage problem. The Chosen One is also called upon to employ his unique fighting styles, including the "gopher," and faces not only Master Pain, but a gay henchman and the lethal lactation of a deadly, karate-chopping cow. Originally entitled "The Dubbed Action Movie," this broad parody saw its release delayed several times, finally reaching theaters two years after it was shot. Kung Pow! Enter the Fist co-stars Tad Horino and Philip Tan.

Kung Pow is an inspired comedy. The jokes are really funny, the editing is so original, the music is awesome, and Steve Oedekerk has some of the best expressions ever. The concept of taking an old martial arts film and giving it new life in this way is simply inspired.... and hilarious. My husband and I saw this movie when it first came out. Since then we've watched it every time we catch it on TV. We've quoted lines so often that our 5YO daughter now belts out "Chosen One!" on a regular basis. (No, we have NOT let her watch Kung Pow.) Don't go into this movie expecting anything less than an hour and 20 minutes of silliness and well done editing and dubbing. WeeeeeOooooooWeeeeeOoooooWeeeee.....

Alot of people have slated this film for it's comedy and it's plot and the fact that it dares to be different. Well if you are looking for an Epic with alot of intelligence, dont bother watching the film. It is one of the daftest films i have ever seen and if you sit down with a few mates and a few drinks you will laugh until you cry. If you loved such films as Naked gun + Hots Shots then Kung pow is just a step further into madness. If there was ever a film to own on video/dvd this would be the one! It is the funniest film i have seen for a long time. Odderick has gone against the film industry with a film that the critics love to hate. One of the greats!

This may be the movie with the most mixed reviews ever. It really depends on you sense of humor. If you have that really random sort of humor, you will probably like it. If you don't, you won't. Personally, it's my favorite movie of all time.

This is the best movie i have seen in years. It takes a real bloody genious to come up with something as this.

This movie made me laugh out loud. It is great to see different comedy other than the same old, same old. Steve Oedekerk thinks outside the box when he comes up with some of this stuff. He is great and I cant wait to see what he comes up with next.

This is absolutely the worst movie I have ever seen. It lacks humor, a story, organization, acting and editing. Other than that, it's terrible. It is as if someone edited a movie and put all the outtakes together and made a movie out of it.

My friends and I were at the movie theatre when we were talking about what movie to see. We all agreed to see KUNG POW becasue of the hilarious trailer we saw on TV. We thought it was going to be a bad movie spoof......Well it turns out we all thought it was the most hilarious movie we all had ever seen. We all loved the movie and can't wait to buy it and watch it again on DVD after its realease date on (July 23, 2002). I thank Steve O. for making a hilarious movie, which lifted me from my sad and boring day. Steve O. almost made the whole movie by himself you know. So All the critics who rated this movie poorly, get a life and learn to laugh you old fogies. If you're a person who loves making fun of old kung-fu karate movies, then you'll LOVE this laugh-out-loud (many times), hilarious comedy.

This movie is so pathetic it just isn't funny. Has hollywood sunk so low that they can't even make a movie by themselves that they have to import some old kung fu movie to fill in the pieces? It's also a waste of a beautiful lady who has only one boob! That alone is absolutely sickening and is only superceded in stupidity by a fight sequence with a cow! Half the actors can't even talk without making wierd noises. Watching this movie will result in a rapid loss in IQ points. The box is more interesting. Stay away from this movie unless you have a death wish. It flops big time. This one is a no brainer. It gets a major ''F''

Kung Pow! Enter the Fist is the al time funniest movie of all times. It makes fun of everything that we know today to be Chinese action films. One of the coolest things are that there are only a couple of actors because they took actual footage from a previous movie and dubbed it to their standards. If you like funny pointless movies this is the one for you!

This movie is the funniest movie I've ever seen. The first time I saw it I laughed so hard that I started crying. My friend Addison and I saw it twice in the theaters and cant wait for the release of the movie. My friend James hated it but hes got no sence of humor and no dick.

No doubt that this movie is very funny, but the comedy can be a bit too redundant and pushy. For example, the asian woman who said ''weee, weee, weee''. It was funny at first, but when she continued to do it throughout the movie, it got very stale. I'm not positive if that was the intent, but there were many other elements that were repeated a tad too much. The cow fight scene is worth the price, though. The movie had it's moments. MANY moments, to be exact. If you're till interested in kung-fu parodies, check out The Kentucky Fried Movie. A movie with many spoof skits, including the hlarious Kung-Fu parody ''A Fistfull of Yen''. I'd go far as to say that ''A Fistfull of Yen'' is funnier than Kung Pow.

I have seen many funny movies, but this movie tops them all. It is a very cheaply (low budjet) film but that is what makes it so funny and original. My friend started crying he was laughing so hard. I was laughing so hard I almost got sick. :)

This movie on face value would be at best considered a light farce -- until you watch it with a 12 year old boy. My son and I loved it and frequently quote our favorite scenes. 'Thats a lot of nuts!' and this is a lot of fun for a boy and his off-beat Dad.

There are movies that are born t be hits and this is not one of them. I found this movie so lacking in real humor that I decided the box was better. It is far too slapstick for even my tastes and the plot is far too weak. The fight scenes with a CGI cow are far too much even for my goofiest tastes. I find it surprising that a completely different film was included to make this film. Using one movie to fill in the gaps to another is not usually done. This movie was not funny and most of the characters dialogue was concentrated into weird noises and bland silliness. I got one or two giggles out of it but not much else. I give this film an “F” (I suggest avoiding eye contact.)

The funney thing about the movie is that it was a lame old Chines flik, and then Steve remakes it. 5 star and a clean film. (No realy bad parts). I'm a guy that loves good funney movies.

This is a funny movie! This is so great I love it! Steve Oedekerk is really great. I watch it on DVD alomost all the time. My sister has seen it, and she like the fighting cow. I like Master Pain...Betty. And I like the sogs, too. ''Can't Touch This'', and others. Hope you enjoy it.
