Utter crap. Probably one of the worst kung fu movies I've ever seen. It wouldn't be so bad if the story sucked but the fights were awesome or something, but it wasn't even that. The story sucked and the fights sucked! Usually kung fu movies tend to have low budgets and don't have good stories anyways, so they rely on the fight scenes being exceptional in every way. That's why the fight scenes in kung fu movies tend to have super fun fights that try to out-do the previous movies in scope, length, and ridiculousness; and usually they achieve all that without wire-fu or CGI, that's what makes kung fu movies so much fun. But Tai Chi Zero has none of that. I don't know what Stephen Fung was doing, but he CGI'd the crap out of the movie. I do admit that he has an interesting visual flair, but it's really nothing special, and in all honesty, all the CGI hocus pocus is just a diversion to distract you from noticing just how bad this movie is.
