The paper focuses on the film "Kung Fu Hustle" that is an example of contemporary national identity in film. The paper relates that the film, because of its distinctly Chinese-Asian make-up, has been well received in the global community. The paper posits that this is partly because the film incorporates those elements of comedy, martial arts and theme that make it an international film product. The paper also shows how the film has bridged the cultural gaps and dispelled many stereotypes about the Chinese-Asian community.
