KUNG FU CHEFS

Jo did what he could to oust his uncle Wong Bing-Yi (Sammo Hung) from the village and to claim the Dragon-Head Cleaver, a symbol of power to the clan. As Wong was out of the village, he discovered a cooking wonder, Lung Kin-Yat (Vanness Wu) in the Four Seas restaurant. To bring Four Seas back to the top, Lung ends up representing it in the competition against Chef Tin (Lam Tze Chung), two-time "Top Chef" winner and the head chef at Imperial Palace.

Watch this if you liked: "God of Cookery," "Kung Fu Hustle"

People say that stars shine, burn and die - but for a movie star like Sammo Hung, with all the sensationalised rumours about his death cropping up all the time, just doesn't seem to. The big guy can still jump and kick (and in the case of this movie, chop and grill) without so much as breaking sweat.

For those who are still wondering what's on the menu, "Kung Fu Chefs" is a combination of what general audiences like to see. In short, it has everything under one roof - great presentation of food, action, and of course, comedy. For "Kung Fu Chefs," not only the food captivates but also great showmanship from a cast on full power. It's like going back to the good ol' days when Sammo Hung and Stephen Chow teams up with Jackie Chan to do what they're best at.

If you're thinking that "Kung Fu Chefs" will be have a lot of super-fake or make-believe effects, think again. Sometimes, too much of special effects can be very confusing and unattractive and "Kung Fu Chefs" definitely avoids that by appetisingly serving up something worth watching and appreciating.

For fans of Vanness Wu who are drooling on this paragraph right now, you read it here first that the celebrated member of Taiwanese boy band "JVKV" (formerly known as "F4") has more mature looks now. He looks pretty good too, but somebody better take him off screen before he starts overdoing the new beefy body in front of the camera.

"Kung Fu Chefs" also see many kung fu masters from Stephen Chow's "Kung Fu Hustle" and Donnie Yen's "Ip Man" getting together to showcase their fighting skills. You can spot one or two masters in every angle showing off their skills.

All in all, "Kung Fu Chefs" is worth watching over the weekend with some friends. There are a few things you can pick up from watching the movie. Just a word of advice - make sure you don't watch this one on an empty stomach!
