Potential.... but thats it.
4 June 2015 | by Destroyer WodSee all my reviews

Honestly, the trailer looked cool so i rented this movie of Xbox Live. So the first thing to get in your face is the wooden and terrible acting. The main protagonist is a Shaolin Monk, so that is excusable, i was not expecting him to be a chatter box, but the rest of the cast are so awful in there line deliveries minus maybe the actress who play Sarah that is half decent, but the rest are bad... like really bad. So thats already a strike against the movie. Also there is quite a lot of character development in the first 30 minutes so a good acting would had really help and the excuse of "you don't watch a kung fu movie for acting" kinda felt flat.

What about the action? The action is very good. I dunno if this is made to be an homage to the old kung fu movies, but the sound effects really reminded me of this. The moves at time seem to not hurt hard as i would expect (Thais are really good at this) but the choreography's are very good and enjoyable.

What about the plot? That is one major question mark... If the beginning is actually pretty straight forward and easy to follow, it then become kinda weird, i want this review to remain spoiler free but you never really get to know who is the bad guy and why he is bad. Its kinda like having that generic guy in a suit for the purpose of having one.

All and all... well i enjoyed the fights, the lead "actor" showed potential and could do something pretty good under a better direction and with a better script.

If your one of those huge fans of Kung Fu movies, i would say give it a shot, but thats as far as i would recommend. Show potential... but thats it.
