Shaolin Reviews

Page 2 of 23
August 1, 2011
Pretty ambitious feel and a pretty good one at that, but it's a little too Shaolin propaganda-ish. And although I like the idea of Shaolin being able to change evil, the time in which it takes is unrealistic.

Films has got some really good action and decent fight scenes. and the acting is pretty darn good too.

One of the best movies from china

superior martial arts flick mixes action with enlightenment. Well acted and heartfelt.
July 8, 2011
Great movie. It shows the true spirit for Shaolin Kung Fu, and it shows what true sacrifice is really about.
December 14, 2012
Movie makes no goddamned sense. But its got Jackie Chan in it so I guess its fine.
September 23, 2013
First thing was to watch Andy acts again. I really like this guy. Secondly, it was the plot and some humor made me stay watching. It was predictable story, but the hole can teach you everything about life, love, and honor.

I gave 3 stars just for wushu. The story was cruel and far from Buddhism faith, and the set decoration was like modest version of Kung-fu Panda. For better or worse, it was a typical Hong-Kong film.

This martial arts movie needed more action, if I remember correctly. Andy Lau and Jackie Chan are awesome, but I remember that it needed less talk, more fighting.
July 18, 2013
wow...what a beautiful martial arts film I've seen since fearless
May 20, 2013
Deceitfully dragged out but the story and combat keeps you interested.
April 25, 2013
Really excellent foreign film. Jackie Chan is in the film. I was surprised how good it is.
March 24, 2013
If you are happy to swallow 'Communist' propaganda, this is a fun film. If you are looking for realism, emotinal engagement, or historical accuracy, look elsewhere.
March 4, 2013
an amazing movie about forgiveness, compassion and sacrifice among the great life that was "Shaolin"
February 14, 2013
Great movie. Really touching story about a man with rage that finds inner peace. Jackie Chan is classic in it with a small role.
February 11, 2013
To put it crudely, it can be titled 'Dances With Shaolin'. But it is indeed a well produced film and Andy Lau's performance does not disappoint. The focus seems more on the Shaolin philosophy and less of the kung-fu action.
February 10, 2013
Wonderfully done awesome movie. Jackie Chan was a great addition to this movie and added some light hearted moments to it as well.
August 31, 2011
Hell. Yeah. Looking forward to this one.

The world's school of martial arts

Brothers in arms team together to bring down a rising warlord; however, one of the brother does not appreciate the plans of the other brother and makes plans to kill him. During the assassination, a man in the brother's command has teamed with the rising warlord in hopes of killing both brothers. One of the brothers survives and escapes the village and begs for the aid of the Shaolin monks. Will they help him and how much will be sacrificed in the process?

"Never kill in front of our daughter."

Benny Chan, director of Jackie Chan Who Am I, New Police Story, Divergence, Robin-B-Hood, Connected, and City Under Siege, delivers Shaolin. The storyline for this picture is very good, compelling, and unpredictable. Even the conclusion goes in a direction I did not anticipate. The martial arts is B+/A- quality and the acting is very solid. The cast includes Andy Lau, Jackie Chan, Jacky Wu, Nicholas Tse, and Bingbing Fan.

"Men, when not clear headed, are worse than pigs."

Shaolin was a movie I randomly came across while scrolling through Jackie Chan pictures and was delighted to discover it starred two of my favorites, Andy Lau and Jacky Wu. The martial arts in this picture were just okay but the storyline, primary plot, and sub plots were very good and I adored the script. This movie is definitely worth your time (and available on Netflix).

"That was for my daughter. Buddha be praised."

Grade: A-
