Tai Chi Zero Reviews

Times-Picayune

Sort of a kung-fu film through a 'Scott Pilgrim' lens, it is a slight but stylistic romp.

Lavishes much care on the scenario, but the nonstop CGI could be a drawback for purists.

A love triangle and some Steampunk machinery add interest, and Fung's spunky inventiveness makes this worth seeing.

The true gist is a kung fu movie for the modern age: jam packed full of the hyper kinetic stimuli of an ADHD generation.

Tai Chi Zero is constantly evolving and changing as a film. It's as if it completely redefines what a dynamic martial arts film can and should be.

And although disappointed by this first part of the trilogy, there was enough to hold my interest to make me at least willing to give part 2 a chance.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

An energetic martial-arts romp with a stylish steampunk twist, Tai Chi 0 assaults the viewer with frenetic fight scenes, audacious video-game-inspired graphics, and nearly enough goofball humor to have it qualify as a comedy.

"Tai Chi Zero" is loads of fun to watch, especially a battle in which watermelons, bananas and other fruits and veggies serve as flying weapons.

A martial-arts adventure with more video-game and comic-book DNA than the traditional kung fu flick, "Tai Chi Zero" is good, if empty-headed, fun.

"Zero" is the first part of a trilogy. Part two, titled "Tai Chi Hero," is due in January. The legend is off to a promising start.

Fung is enjoying himself so much that he doesn't want the movie to end - and his delight is infectious.

Tai Chi Zero, the first film in a planned trilogy, will leave hard-core fight enthusiasts wanting. But it's a droll, pleasant diversion all the same.

Fast and mostly fun, the movie also seems compulsively too much, throwing everything it can think of at you, lest it fail to entertain.

The cross-cultural, steampunk, martial arts/comic-book Sino-Anglo mash-up...[is]visually entertaining. But...its considerable charms may prove exhausting before its relatively brief, 95-minute run time is over.

Give some points to a genre flick whose style mash-up reflects uneasy relations between Asia and the West just as its fracas-intensive plot tries to dramatize them.

The story's fundamentals are solid, and the battles between this village of kung fu experts and an army of 19th century technophiles are so good that the inevitable sequel (already in the works) will be welcome.

There is fun to be had with this, it's quirky, self-referential, there's a knowing humour throughout. Not to be taken too seriously although the characters are apparently based on historical figures.

It's meant either to aggressively defy convention or to distract moviegoers from a story that is pedestrian and predictable.

"Tai Chi Zero" is often more distracting than diverting with its everything-goes aesthetic - there are strains of steampunk, manga and silent film comedy, with video-game touches.

Exhausting to watch, Tai Chi Zero is all flash and little substance.
