Magnificent Butcher, THE Sammo Hung classic, and without a doubt the best calligraphy battle I've ever seen. This comedic tale of Wong Fei-Hung's portly student, Butcher Wing, has all the hallmarks of a Sammo Hung film: great and surprising action, 5 or 6 subplots pulling on the story's blanket, anachronisms, and bathroom humor. It's all part of the charm, though some viewers may stop short at the almost-rape scene played straight. It's a very dark moment in the middle of this comedy, but as usual, Chinese filmmakers go to extra lengths to make their villains hateful.
