Synopsis

The Mermaid
Love emerges amongst a pending aquatic catastrophe in this romantic fantasy drama from director and co-screenwriter Stephen Chow. Written by Chow and Hing-Ka Chan, The Mermaid tells the story of a man named Xuan (Chao Deng), whose plans to build estates in the sea are halted by the lovely Shan (Yun Lin), who is sent to dissaude Xuan on behalf of the mermaids. Xuan's heart is swayed, but the pair soon finds that there are even bigger problems, and enemies, facing the mermaids. ~ Tom Ciampoli, Rovi

Kung Fu Hustle
The work of international superstar Stephen Chow, Kung Fu Hustle is a humorous, special-effects-filled, action-packed martial arts epic set in early '40s China. A bumbling thief named Sing (Stephen Chow) desires to be the toughest member of the dreaded gangster hit squad known as The Axe Gang, but to completely join the gang he has to commit murder. When Sing attempts to rob a crowded run-down apartment complex known as Pig Sty Alley, the locals begin to defend themselves with some high-flying kung fu skills, and a tiny war erupts between the local masters and the axe-wielding gang. After the gang busts the ancient kung fu king known as The Beast (Leung Siu Lung) out of jail, tensions reach a boiling point as Pig Sty Alley's landlady (Yuen Qiu) leads an all-out attack against the gang and Sing discovers his true heroic fate. Kung Fu Hustle, which set box-office records across Asia during its December 2004 release, also stars Yuen Wah and Xing Yu, and features fight choreography by legendary masters of martial arts cinema Yuen Woo Ping and Sammo Hung. ~ Jason Gibner, Rovi
