NOTE:  I have a love for martial arts film and will watch most martial arts films without discrimination, I've seen many bad ones and many good ones, but Kung Fu Hustle definitely stands alone in a different kind of greatness.  The martial arts moves and choreography is good and the story is great.  A martial arts film that isn't Hollywood (which is good in my book) coupled with super-powers, comedy and random sing & dance, it's definitely a film you should watch if you're a martial arts fan- there's no other martial arts film quite like it.
