A great movie, even better actors.
22 January 2018 | by agilbertsenSee all my reviews

Personally in my humble opinion "A Paper Tiger Burns" is possibly the greatest movie of 2017, possibly EVER!!! The portrayal of this karate master is amazing he has such character depth and the actors that play him in all iterations are quite possibly the best actors I've ever seen. The story line and the production are probably the best I have ever seen, the story unwinds so naturally and honestly these characters feel very hyper-realistic almost as if these characters are real.
