Kung Fu Killer revolves around a series of killings in China perpetrated by a handicapped martial artist, Fung Yu-Sau (Baoqiang Wang), who wants to prove he is the best in all areas of martial arts. When the first death occurs, a convict and former instructor of martial arts for the police force, Hahou Mo (Donnie Yen), recognizes the motive and convinces the lead detective, Luk Yuen-Sum (Charlie Yeung), to let him help catch the killer in exchange for his freedom.

Luk Yuen-Sum reluctantly agrees and teams up with Hahou Mo. But their partnership is pushed to the limits as certain elements are revealed about Hahou Mo; including the love of his life and a possible connection to the killer that leads the detective to believe that he has had ulterior motives all along. The dramatic story culminates with an epic fight between Hahou Mo and Fung Yu-Sau that is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Kung Fu Killer has some of the best martial arts scenes I have seen since The Matrix. The fight scenes are very well choreographed and the story that holds them together is fairly well written. It is a dramatic, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride from beginning to end. Despite possibly needing the subtitles, I highly recommend this film to any fan of martial arts.
