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.

So this is the last of the Kung Fu monks? Alrighty then...

When I purchased this 2010 Kung Fu action movie from Amazon, I had no idea what it was, nor did I know anyone on the cast list. But being a Kung Fu movie was more than enough to catch my interest. And the fact that it was about maybe £2 or £3 with shipping, then it wasn't a massive loss if the movie was not a great one.

And now I have managed to finally get around to watch it, and I can in all honesty say that this movie was nowhere near as good or entertaining as I had hoped for. Sure, I didn't have much expectations to begin with, but this movie still managed to disappoint. And why is that? Well, because of the storyline and the lack of proper acting talent throughout the movie.

The action in "Last Kung Fu Monk" was quite good, and there was a lot of it. And it should be said that Peng Zhang Li does have some impressive martial arts skills and manages to deliver a nice display of his talent. However, his martial arts could only carry the movie so far, because his acting was downright wooden and rigid.

I managed to get somewhere near 45 minutes into the movie before I had to give up out of sheer boredom. The lack of proper acting performances were really wearing and tearing at me, and it was ultimately this which made me give up on the movie. The fighting was good, but it was hardly nowhere near enough to keep the movie afloat.

If you enjoy movies where the main character is forced into fighting in underground fighting rings, then there far better movies available. "Last Kung Fu Monk" doesn't really offer anything which haven't been seen in countless other martial arts movies in the past.

I am rating "Last Kung Fu Monk" a mere three out of ten stars rating solely for the martial arts in the movie.
