Great Martial Arts Plus Buddhism 101
This one came and went in the theater so fast that I blinked and missed it. So, this is a review of the DVD. Excellent martial arts (which is what we watch martial arts for, right?) It never dragged for even a moment, since about 99% of the screen time was full of fighting. Well, maybe that is an exaggeration. When the young hero, Tiger was not battling with his fists and feet, he was battling his inner demons. Which, if you are Buddhist, is the same thing. ALL martial arts movies made in the orient are Buddhist parables, but this one is especially nice for westerners who are not familiar with the religion, since it lays it all out nice and neatly the way Alan Watts does in his books.
