King of Snake Posted March 27, 2002 Share Posted March 27, 2002 This has been out a while in China, my brother-in-law being Chinese first rented it and my brother who was staying at my sisters at the time saw it. He told me about it and I finally got to see it last weekend and I must say it's a pretty good movie!! :approve: A comedy, the story's about a shaolin kung-fu practitioner who's seeking a way to spread the word about shaolin kung-fu. He meets a down on his luck lame ex-football player who trains him and his five brothers to play football. They form a team, and are entered in a prestigious tournament with a 1 million dollar prize which has been won for the last five years by a team managed by the guy who arranged making the ex-footballer lame. The story can lag a little in places and some of the jokes are lost in translation but where the film shines is the matches where, and this has to be seen, the Shaolin team use mystical-type kung-fu moves to play soccer! Done with brilliant special effects, which hard to explain, are not technically fantastic tho good but are used in the best possible ways. To give examples would just spoil the movie so I won't but I urge all deities to check this one out!! IMDB (which gives it 8.1 from 600 votes) says it's out on the 5th of April in the US and the 31st May in the UK, under the name Kung-Fu Soccer.
