Insider tip for streaming: Iconic nonsense is hidden at Disney+
Many people will probably still think of animated family films primarily when they think of Disney, but that’s not entirely correct anymore. Especially not at Disney +, where a lot of genre and cult films have recently been romping around. One of them is the wonderful nonsense “Kung Pow: Enter The Fist”.
Streaming services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video have secured a solid market share over the years. In addition to big blockbusters, they also have a few insider tips waiting to be discovered.
Is this also available at Disney +? The platform of the big mouse company is just a year old in Germany and attracts mainly with cartoon classics, computer-animated Pixar hits, “Star Wars” and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Recently, however, there has been a completely new area with STAR, with which more than 300 new films and series have been released on Disney + – and suddenly there are also surprises that may not have been on the bill. For example Kung Pow: Enter The Fist “, a cruel ordeal for the brain and diaphragm – in a positive sense, of course.
“Kung Pow: Enter The Fist” is a so-called spoof film , a representative of the genre in which primarily other works or people are parodied. The “Scary Movie” films are famous representatives of this category, in which familiar elements from elsewhere are taken up and taken away by the lack of humor.
For “Kung Pow”, Steve Oedekerk (director, screenwriter and leading actor in one person) and his team went one step further. Or better said: You didn’t take any more steps than necessary , instead you just picked up an old Kung Fu film classic and implanted yourself and others into many parts of the film with the help of digital technology. In addition, Oedekerk wrote new, stupid “dialogues”.
