    Iron Monkey

    It's a story about a corrupt governor in a Chinese province and about a mysterious fighter (known as Iron Monkey) who fights against the government corruption. It's a good, light-hearted story with a lot of cool fighting (and a little cooking). The story flows well and keeps you entertained throughout. A very enjoyable watch.

    If you liked kung fu hustle check out Shaolin Soccer... stars & produced by the same guy (Stephen Chow).

    Other far eastern films which are good :

    A Better Tomorrow (HK Gangster Film)
    Ichi the Killer (Japanese action... very very violent)
    Volcano High (Korean action)
    Ong Bak (Thai action - very good)

    Then you have all the hollywood style films such as Crouching Tiger/Hero/House of Flying Daggers
