Only for martial art movie fans
I practice martial arts (Ok, I practice - I didn't say I was good!). This movie was funnier than I expected, and is mercifully short(only 87 minutes). It doesn't take itself seriously - there are scenes where characters discuss being characters. The plot is whisper-thin, but who watches these things for the plot? Having said that, I still laughed out loud in several spots, and the martial arts scenes were quite good (and legit. Some of these were taken seriously or at least lovingly). The movie did a great job spoofing the genre - but if you don't like martial arts films, you just won't appreciate this film.
Basically, the level of humor is broad. If you liked Hot Shots Part Deux, you'd probably enjoy this movie.
