Aka legend of the Red Dragon
25 October 2002 | by dilbertsupermanSee all my reviews

I would classify this as a great action movie for kids that enjoy kung fu like dragonball Z. It is not realistic. It is very much like the movie equivalent of reading a comic book and if you suspend you disbelief and enjoy the movie for what it is, a chop suey kung fu flick.. then it is worth watching. There are 6 kids doing fantasy shaolin in this movie and that is bound to make the kids enjoy the movie more than anyone else. This is not a ground breaking film on any level, including the fight scenes, script and special effects. It is so bad it is entertaining to watch, once you understand it is a typical comic book style kung fu, complete with silly villian and kicks that defy gravity completely. Jet Li's other movies such as Kiss of The Dragon, Black Mask, his cameo in lethal weapon 4, and "The One".. they are much larger budget so have much more to offer. In any case, Jet Li has brought a lot to the arena of martial arts entertainment and I applaud that.
