Movie Reviews

Not an Action movie
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is not an action movie. This is a documentary about Martial Arts as practiced in the Shaolin temples. Many of the seemingly impossible moves are shown here without special effects. Some of the feats include, one finger handstand, breaking glass bottles with an open hand, withstanding kicks to the groin, pushing against the point of a spear with various parts of the body, having sticks broken across the throat, using the thigh as a cutting board and many more.Jet Li shows up in this movie primarily as a commentator. He gives some of his personal history (The wushu tournaments) and philosophy (such as respect for elders). There are also some scenes from wushu tournaments in China, but the primary focus is on the training at the temple.I can only give it 4/5 stars because the picture quality is not very good. But the content is great, just don't expect an action movie."
Shaolin Kung Fu - Jet Li

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not a movie, but documetary at best. Don't expect acting or high picture quality, just REAL Shaolin Monks at best, showing 72 of thier most honarable techiniques.Also features Li as a young boy, simply amazing. A must have for TRUE Kung-Fu fans."
Wonderful Documentary

"Jet Li barely appears in this documentary, but to be honest it doesn't need Jet to get its point across. The Shaolin monks have been practicing their martial arts for centuries, and this is a small window into what they put into their art. Wonderful film...."

"Great movie to appreciate the true art of Shaolin KungFu. Jet Li's kung fu is great and without tricks."
