Shaolin Power
19 October 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is not a good documentary about the Shaolin style nor is it a movie with some fancy storyline

What this is is just a spectacular show by Shaolin Monks doing things that are just unbelievable.

If you like martial arts movies and "crazy" Asian stunts, this show will show you lots of this stuff happening in real time.. Some fights these monks show up is just like looking at a great martial arts movie =)

The only real bad thing about this is the slow motion effects and some bad cutting here and there.. but don't let that come in your way

Its an fantastic show made by fantastic Monks showing off what they can do with their bodies.

How they handle different weapons is just fantastic.. you have to see it to believe it.

Some things I strongly suggest that you NOT try to attempt at home =)
