Shaolin was an art practiced through the ages; a skill mastered in the heart. For six young believers it had become more than just a philosophy. It had become a complete way of life.
But as the world changed around them, and honor and discipline became forgotten values, the young followers lost their way--except for Sing. With the help of a former soccer star, he reunites his old, out-of-shape, misfit friends and recruits a young woman with extraordinary Kung Fu skills.
Together, they're out to combine the ancient power of Shaolin with the modern game of soccer and in the process, they just might take the world's most popular sport to its most extreme.
What the critics are saying:
"Recaptures the essence of delirious, fantastic action that made Hong Kong the capital of cool through the late 1980s and early 1990s."- Bryant Frazer, Deep Focus"As long as your expectations are focused in the right direction, it's a sure bet that you'll have a good time watching this infectiously entertaining comedy."- James Berardinelli, ReelViews"... though the humor is uneven and somewhat skewed to Chinese pop culture, the unlikely combination of soccer with martial arts chic make this a must-see."- Anthony Leong, Mediacircus
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »
