Movie review: Kung Fu Jungle

Movie review: Kung Fu Jungle
Cinema still: Kung Fu Jungle starring Wang Baoqiang (left) and Donnie Yen

Kung Fu Jungle stars Shaolin-trained Chinese actor Wang Baoqiang as a vicious killer who makes it his sole mission in life to take down top martial arts opponents.

Yen plays a convicted murderer and former top wushu exponent who knows Wang's twisted psyche inside out. He offers to help the police nab Wang in return for his freedom.

Thrilling and gripping, Kung Fu Jungle showcases Yen's and Wang's impressive athleticism. The final fight is stunning, boasting the best stunt work I have seen in a Hong Kong film in years.
