Storyline

At Shaolin Temple in Hunan, the best at Kung-Fu are Yin, a willowy young woman who has mastered supernatural powers, and Loon, a small boy who's a Dervish at martial arts. They go to Hawaii for a world competition, and their government assigns So, the delegation head, to find a missing nuclear code key before it falls into the hands of an underworld figure in Hawaii. Comrade So is kidnapped and tortured; Yin and Loon must rescue him. They're aided by a handsome young man and a chubby extroverted boy whom Yin rescues by chance from thugs. These two Hawaiians turn out to have a connection to Shaolin Temple. That connection proves to be a God-send. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

campy but great
16 December 2007 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

I don't remember this movie too well as I have only seen it once and it was along time, but I do remember really enjoying it!! The characters have a great dynamic with some really funny and obscure comedic moments. In particular, the boy is awesome. He has great comic relief and it is just so amazing to see someone so young do all these amazing fight scenes. The Kung Fu has a bit of fantasy along with some really great action. I really enjoy martial arts movies when the weapons vary incredibly and often include items that aren't usually considered to be dangerous. There are definitely some moments that will last with you forever. I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoyed movies like Kung Fu Hustle or The Legend of Ricky-Oh.
