Provided Chow survives being 'Miramaxed', you're looking at the next big Asian star to rise in the West.

It so deliriously riffs on everything from The Bad News Bears and Jurassic Park to super heroes and break dancing that it's hard not to get caught up in the goofy fun.

You could call it a guilty pleasure, but that would suggest you feel bad about enjoying yourself.

A movie as empty-headed as your average Premier League player, but that doesn't matter when the footie scenes are so fun and deliriously OTT.

None of this is meant to be taken seriously or even thought about. So just turn off your brain and enjoy the silliness.

No doubt there are sports pedants who will find themselves echoing the sentiments of one exasperated opponent as he exclaims "Please don't play like this! I really want to play soccer!" -- but everyone else will be too busy care very much.

Até mesmo os efeitos visuais cartunescos se adequam ao tom de fantasia desta produção que, justamente por não se levar a sério, é surpreendentemente hilária.

A movie that rises to dizzying heights of silliness before soaring into the silly stratosphere, Shaolin Soccer is pure fun.
