Great documentary highly recommended
15 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The director creates a wonderful documentary, capturing the hard and gritty life of 4 individuals as they strive to be kung fu masters. The footage and story that the director weaves together tells a remarkable story that pulls you right into the film. The Real Shaolin is unlike any documentary that I have ever seen. As a student of martial arts, it was amazing to see the kind of training that these students endure. I thought it was amazing how the director seamlessly tells the story of the 4 different characters and unites them through their common dream. While each individual had different experiences and martial arts trainings, their determination and courage was clearly the same. The Real Shaolin does justice to its title and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of storytelling.
