Audience Reviews for Tai Chi II

½

Awesome sequel of Jet Li's kung-fu epic film, but this is plenty of comedy with Jackie Wu who looks like a young Li as his martial arts are fast, crisp and smooth. His character is a bit of a smartass, but it works well within the story. Its a cute story and every five minutes of so...boom great martial arts sequences! Yuen Woo-Ping has directed another highly entertaining period kung-fu movie and the story is fairly typical, revolutionaries and opium smugglers in turn-of-the-century China. Yu Hai and Billy Chow also show up and do some impressive moves. There are a lot of wires as well as authentic wushu and tai chi so be warned. I also liked the fact that there is actually a relationship in this movie that goes somewhere, something I rarely see in a kung fu movie. Sibelle Hu and Christy Chung are also pretty.

The storyline for this picture is okay but a bit all over the place.

I had heard good things about this movie and I was excited to see Wu’s second ever picture. Wu was outstanding in this film and Woo-Ping’s action choreography was stunning. I would rate this movie a step above Jet Li’s New Legend of Shaolin. This is worth your time if you are a martial arts fan.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]“Keep reading or I’ll stab your ass again.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=white]Grade: B[/color][/size][/font]
