'Kung fu Dunk' makes the layup
“Kung fu Dunk” is a whimsical crossing between kung fu and basketball along the same lines as “Shaolin Soccer.” The movie follows Jie Fang, played by Jay Chou who was in “The Green Hornet,” from the day he becomes an orphan through to the day he gets into basketball. Of course, being raised in a kung fu school has given Jie preternatural physical abilities that include never missing when shooting a basketball or anything else for that matter.
The movie emphasizes teamwork, the family that you choose and overcoming adversity. The three main basketball players must overcome injury and their own personal demons to play well together. There is plenty of wirework and high flying action. There is also one really good fight sequence.
There is a lot to like about this film if you like campy comedy that barely holds itself together. If you want an intricate plot with lots of subplots and surprises, this isn’t the film for you. It is well crafted, and there are a couple of really funny moments. It may not alter the universe, but all in all, it is a pleasant experience.
