Storyline

A high school is in crisis, the students are under-performing and preoccupied with non-academic activities. Henry Chen, aka Big Brother, a teacher with rather rusty writing skills yet armed with the most knowledgeable fists and heart of steel, comes to enlighten and inspire the students with his unconventional teaching methods. Just as the kids are improving their work and enjoying the merits of the educational system, trouble follows. An opportunistic entrepreneur creates havoc by sending in a motley gang of fighters to win over the land. Their approach, however, isn't all that persuasive with Chen as he and his beloved class are going to give the unwelcome guests the benefits of a real education. Written by DOK

Touching and Inspiring - a movie with a lot of heart and positive messages!
18 August 2018 | by tigercanyonsSee all my reviews

I went into the theatres expecting a full fledge martial arts movie, but I got more than that. The movie totally blew my expectations away, as Big Brother touches on gender equality, racism and more importantly the flaws in today's education system. The role a teacher plays in his/her students' lives, to inspire and motivate.

Reminds me of the hit Bollywood film, 3 idiots, but with more action scenes.

Have not seen a movie that brings out so many positive messages for a Long time.

Also was not expecting to go into the cinema to see so many people wiping their tears during the movie - a very touching movie with comedic elements and incredible action sequences. A movie with a lot of heart and effort, and deserves to be applauded.

Definitely recommended to be watched in theatres! :)
