Audience Reviews for Tai Chi Master


We are all students Two friends that used to be Shoalin monks leave their school and head into town. They meet a woman at a restaurant who is recently divorced and hasn't recovered from her personal life. An evil emperor sends troops into town to collect taxes and the friends become split as one wants to raise the military ranks while the other wants to stay and work at the restaurant. As they grow apart, the best of friends quickly become bitter enemies. "It's a rebellion. Not in my providence. You must all die." Woo-Ping Yuen, director of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Drunken Master, Iron Monkey, Wing Chun, Drunken Tai Chi, Magnificent Butcher, and Dance of the Drunken Mantis, delivers Tai Chi Master. The storyline for this picture is very well done and entertaining. There is a nice blend of action and comedy and the action is first rate. The cast includes Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, and Chin Siu-Ho. "I didn't even know you wore underpants." I came across this on Netflix and had seen it a long time ago and was surprised it wasn't on my Rottentomatoes review list. Overall, this is a classic martial arts picture that is a must see for fans of Jet Li. This is one of his better pure martial arts pictures. I strongly recommend this film to fans of the genre. "We all start off small." Grade: A
