Kung Faux: Vol. 2 is the continuation of a highly innovative television series. It combines the action of classic martial arts movies of the 1970s with comedic redubbing by Hip-hop celebrities. The result is a hilarious and new interpretation of old films, some of which have never been seen before in the United States. This volume features two old-school films, each one abridged and "remixed" with the voice talents of Biz Markie, Leonard Smythe, Queen Latifah, Afrika Bambaataa and Elephant Man. These two films are renamed to "Pinky" and "Mini Lee". They are further modernized with use of comic book-style transitions and effects, as well as video game sounds. It is quite a daring attempt that paid off big-time for its creator, Tommy Boy, bringing to life a unique show with appeal to both fans of Kung-fu films and Hip-hop. The show in its entirety received high praise from critics, many of whom enjoyed its fresh premise and fantastic writing.
