Kwai Chang Caine was a priest at a Shaolin temple, where his son Peter also lived and studied. The temple was destroyed and father and son each thought the other had perished in the fire. ... See full summary »
David Carradine plays his original character's grandson, also named Kwai Chang Caine, who has a son of his own, Peter, played by the wonderful Chris Potter. The two are separated for many years, thinking each other dead. When Caine and Peter accidentally find each other again in a large U.S. city, the two must work through their many personal and cultural differences -- Caine is a Shaolin Priest (of course), but Peter has grown up to become a cop with an attitude. The hardest part , they find, is learning to be father and son once more. The struggle for Peter to remember his earlier teachings and adjust to his father's abrupt appearance in his life, and for Caine to accept an adult son who has a mind of his own and an adopted family who knew nothing about his past or about his Shaolin beginnings is a great premise. Their growth and conflicts are beautifully portrayed by two very, very good actors, and the supporting characters/actors are wonderful.
