Kung Fu Hustle Soundtrack
Language(s): CHINESE - CANTONESE
Publisher: Sony Music Hongkong
Distribute: Sony Music Malaysia
Release Date: 2004
The music used in the movie is a mix of western classical pieces, traditional Chinese music and pieces composed for the film. My favourite of the traditional Chinese music was "The Sichuan General" that played in the big fight scene near the start of the movie. Allegro Molto Vivace From Zigeunerweisen, Op. 20 was my favourite western classic piece that was used in the chase scene between Stephen's character and the landlady.
Out of the music composed for the movie, my favourite was "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained" that played during the establishing scenes for the Axe Gang.
Although I couldn't understand the dialog clips on the CD, my favourite was "No More Soccer!" as it was short and sweet and introduced a great track.
This is a great soundtrack except for one thing, the music that was "inspired" by the movie is not really my thing. I am probably going to burn my own copy without the last two tracks as they really don't fit with the rest of the tracks on the CD.
