Good background noise

Spoiler: there's nothing beyond the title to indicate the protagonist is anywhere near being the last Shaolin Kung-Fu monk. There is no explanation for this just as there is hardly any apparent motivation for anything anyone in this movie does.

The characters who are supposed to be likable are. There are some OK (and IMHO, only OK) fight sequences.

As some have said, the acting is not very impressive-but considering the sophomoric screenplay it would be hard for the best actors to do anything with their lines.

If you told me this movie was the first written and directed by an aspiring 13-year-old filmmaker, I'd believe it.

Low rent action indebted to Tony Jaa

LAST KUNG FU MONK is another low budget slice of US/Hong Kong madness from the people who brought you THE RESISTANCE, a story about the Nanjing massacre which was even worse. That film ripped off IP MAN quite extensively, whereas LAST KUNG FU MONK is happy to emulate the likes of ONG BAK and WARRIOR KING quite extensively for its running time.

The story is about your average middle-aged kung fu fighting monk who decides to head to New York to help out some buddies. Once there he becomes embroiled in a plot involving some low rent gangster goons and plentiful action ensues. The action sequences are surprisingly decent in places, even though they're constrained by the low budget; they're not up to the level of MERANTAU, but some of the choreography is nice. The Thai Tony Jaa films are the inspiration here and the fights tend to use repetitive music with crashing cymbals that's borrowed in its entirety from WARRIOR KING.

Elsewhere, the film suffers from the usual round of really bad acting and amateurish writing. Outside of the action it just isn't very good at all and during the action it's just about acceptable. You do have to laugh at our very ordinary-looking monk's romance with a gorgeous young woman which stretches the bounds of believability even more than his martial arts moves.

Confusing almost-kung-fu movie

Very confusing back-flashes.

Aside from those, the presentation of the main character as a true shaolin monk is well done. He is consummate, a true monk in the senses presented to the viewer.

The film is presented in a way that caters to the chick-flick crowd, where the actresses and characters focus on emotions and connections emanating from the main character. Unfortunately for those interested in a martial arts film, this focus takes precedence over the martial arts aspect.

For the chick-flick fans, it should be mentioned that the presentation does not serve them particularly either. The main character does show up as a true monk, not partaking in the passing pleasures of the present, but focusing on the necessities at hand.

There are a few scenes of martial artistry, but these do not make up for the lackluster performance of the film as a whole.

As others have said, pick another one to waste your time with. This master plays his part, but the war is lost.
