    "This definitely does qualify as a martial arts movie. It does offer a lot of comedic value though, so I would not recommend it to anyone who is looking for an entirely serious martial arts movie. But, if you don't mind laughing and getting to see some awesome Kung Fu moves, this is a great move to watch."
