Retro Review: Kung Pow: Enter the Fist!

Oh the horrible, horrible memories. Why, oh why was this movie even made?

“Kung Pow: Enter the Fist” stars “Ace Ventura 2” writer Steve Oederkerk as “The Chosen One” who seeks to bring forth his vengeance on the man who killed his parents, the evil warlord “Betty”. As for that tidbit, that’s about the entire plot in this film.

Oederkerk tries to be clever in making bad dubbing, gross-out gags and sexual innuendos. He goes over the top in his utter ridiculousness but don’t get me wrong this movie does have some funny moments. There is a part of the film that pokes fun at the “Lion King” that is an utter riot and there are some other stupid laughs. The “Lion King” bit is definitely a hi-light.

This film would have been more fun to make and to understand how it was conceived than to watch. I can’t recall a film that has ever made me think just that single thought. That is actually the only thought I really had throughout this film.

Basically it’s what you see is what you get. And it truly is one of the worst movies of all time. Nuff said!
