Worth seeingBy a customer from Yorkshire UK , 24 Mar 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This film is about a girl that used to be a Tofu Beauty but for some reason as you will discover in the film became a Kung Fu expert. Its a funny yet serious film and is easy to follow and enjoy. I watch alot of Martial Art films and eastern films and I think this was decent and not at all budget made. Wing chun rescues a girl from bandits and soon this young girl has started working for her and her aunt with foul breath! Very amusing bits to the film, especially getting the dirty old men to line up to speed up sales!

Light action, no gender illusionsBy MiniKong (13 reviews) from London , 26 Aug 2008Expect beautiful action from Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix, Kill Bill), you won't be disappointed. Fortunately Wing Chun is a bit more than an endless sequence of Kung Fu presentations; although the story and plot won't hold you, de-complexed humour and a lucid approach to gender relationships in a freestyle impression of traditional China add up to light, cool entertainment that will even cheer up your 'no-more-kung-fu-please' movie friends.
OKBy a customer from Manchester , 31 May 2006Fights ae ok,have been speeded up. Micelle Yeoh and Donnie Yen are good as usual.
DissapointedBy Sonny from England , 04 Mar 2006Instead of calling it 'Wing Chun' they should have called it 'lack of wing chun'. There were some funny moments but not alot. I saw more Shaolin kung fu then wing chun in it. Even the bad guys turned out to be a bit lame. The story had more of a romantic element to it.
Entertaining Action comedyBy cdhhyper from Berkshire , 21 Feb 2006I know nothing about Wing Chun martial arts style as one reviewer seems to. I agree with the other reviewer who says this is an action comedy.
I had no preconceptions for the film. So I was delightfully surprised by the comedic elements and there were some laugh out loud moments. The film had a combination of seriousness, comedy and farce (in the theatrical sense a la Brian Rix etc)
In a way, this reminded of Shakespeare, where he writes for both the serious audience and the less sophisticated audience when he throws in the humourous bits (yes Shakespeare does have them!).
The film has all the usual oriental acting styles and dialogue delivery, if you've seen a lot of them, you'll know what I mean.
The action sequences are well staged and look good.
All in all, I enjoyed it.
Yeoh! Michelle is Fab.By drunkenmaster (479 reviews) from Merthyr Tydfil, , 23 Oct 2005Action comedy from Yeun Woo Ping with Michelle Yeoh once again showing why she is the queen of action. Her physical skills in this film are stunning (With a little wire work.) and her comedy timing is also spot on. Not so much about the fighting style as I would have liked, but highly enjoyable.
Donnie Yen is at hand to help the action set pieces along, but he is a little under used. Enjoyable, but more of a one woman show than a film. I can watch Michelle Yeoh all day anyway, but as a movie this is just watchable.
