Happy Chinese New Year And Have A Good "Kung Fu Dunk"
Happy Chinese New Year to all Chinese! Today I went to Mid Valley to watch "Kung Fu Dunk". I was quite surprised to find out that the was not much people watching this show. I guess most choose to watch Stepehn Chow's "CJ7". "Kung Fu Dunk" stars Jay Chou (my idol), Bo-Lin Chen, Baron Chen, Eric Tsang and Charlene Choi (of Hong Kong's 'Twins' duo fame) and is directed by Kevin Chu. The story goes as Fang Shi-Jie (Jay Chou) is an orphan who grows up in a martial arts school. Unexpectedly, he shows his marvellous skills of slam-dunk. His talent was discovered by Wang-Li (Eric Tsang), who plans to use him to make money. So, on the pretext of helping him to find his family, Wang-Li invited him to play basketball at First University. After joining the basketball team, Shi-Jie found out that Li-Li (Charlene Choi), the girl whom he had admired for a long time is actually the sister of Ting-Wei (Bo-Lin Chen) the basketball team's captain. Shi-Jie was desperate to draw her attention. Therefore, he attempted to compete with Xiao-Lan (Baron Chen), who is Li-Li's idol, which made the basketball team lapse into an unstable atmosphere. During the process, the conflicts between each other had been sorted out after the counsel of Ting-Wei. Meanwhile, he helped Shi-Jie combine the foundation of kung-fu into the basketball skills, which brought his skills into full play and helped team go through the critical competitions. At this time, the major competitor faced by Shi-Jie and his team members was the team led by Lee Tien, the previous fighting brother of Ting-Wei. The team was constituted by a group of horrible men who were withstood to join any basketball games in the United States. They also bribed the referees, which made the basketball team of the first university become the living targets and face the situation of crushing defeat. When the situation was in danger, Wang-Li made great efforts to persuade four grand masters with excellent martial arts skills to take up a challenge at the last moment. I can say after the show, there are some parts that I don't like, but it still get 4 stars from me anyway.
