Storyline

Jet Li weasels out of the north Shaolin temple to assassinate a despotic ruler at the ruler's extravagant public birthday celebration. Two other men from the south Shaolin temple also set out to assassinate the ruler, but all three fail and are chased all over by soldiers. Meanwhile, one of the southerners turns out to be a cross-dressed woman, who is also discovered to wear a footbell to match Jet Li's, meaning they are somehow slated for an arranged marriage.

Only for the die hard Jet Lee Fan
9 January 2002 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Impressive Martial Arts does not necessarily make a good movie. Nan Bei Shao Lin proved to me to be a lousy film without any means to tell a intressting story, the lack of storyline and acting skills makes this film dive down to the bottom of my list over favorite jet lee films. Most of it felt more like a musical than a film, I guess it's only for the die hard Jet Lee fans only.
