Kung Fu Hustle wins 6 awards in Hong Kong

KUNG FU HUSTLE wins 6 awards including Best Picture at 24th Hong Kong Film Awards.
“Winning Best Picture was not surprising considering KUNG FU HUSTLE was the number one box office hit of all time in Hong Kong and a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival.,” said Chuck Boller, executive director at HIFF.
“KUNG FU HUSTLE is a funny slapstick action comedy with one of Asia’s hottest actors Stephen Chow.

The 24th Hong Kong Film Awards Presentation Ceremony was held on March 27, 2005 at the Hong Kong Coliseum. The organizer is the Hong Kong Film Awards Association. The highlight of the Awards Presentation Ceremony was a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Chinese movies.
KUN FU HUSTLE won the following awards:
Best picture - Best Supporting Actor (Yuen Wah) - Best Editing (Angie Lam On-Yi) - Best Action Design (Yuen Woo-Ping) - Best Sound Effects (Steven Ticknor, Steve Burgess, Rob Mackenzie, Paul Pirola) - Best Visual Effects (Chung Chi-Hung, Ma Wing-On, Tam Kai-Kwun, Hung Lau-Leung)

Actor Stephen Chow is one of Asia’s biggest box office draws, and his capabilities behind the lens match his remarkable talent as a performer. As a director, he made a splash onto the American scene with SHAOLIN SOCCER. Now, with his astounding and hilarious KUNG FU HUSTLE, Chow convincingly vies for the attention of martial arts aficionados everywhere as he delivers an entertaining package of comedy, melodrama and high octane kung fu fighting. The story is set in 1940s Canton, China, and follows Sing (Chow), a wannabe gangster who has decided that bad guys are cooler. He desperately wants to join the infamous Axe Gang, a legion of black-suited murderers who dominate Hong Kong. One day Sing and his dorky cohort get ahead of themselves and recklessly pose as Axes while visiting a shabby housing project. Their string of mishaps draws the real Axes into a skirmish with the slipperfooted peasantry—who strangely enough also happen to be extremely well versed in the art of kung fu—and a veritable war breaks out in epic proportions. With sweeping visual scope, Chow seamlessly integrates a perfectly timed comedic narrative with homages to old western showdowns, Roadrunner-style chase scenes, grand tuxedoed dance numbers, and massive MATRIX-style digital effects and action sequences. KUNG FU HUSTLE is one ride that is as smart as it is exhilarating. ~ Sundance Film Festival
