Movie Info

Hong Kong star Jet Li portrays the inventor of T'ai Chi in this entertaining if not historically accurate martial-arts movie. Junbao (Li) and Tienbao (Chin Siu-Ho) are a pair of young monks studying kung fu in a Shaolin temple. Junbao is balanced and humble, but Tienbao is competitive and eager to advance. The two are wrongfully accused of cheating during a tournament and are expelled. From there they take radically different paths. Tienbao becomes a mercenary for an evil warlord, and Junbao joins a rebel group led by Michelle Yeoh. Tienbao betrays Junbao; Junbao loses his memory in the resulting fight. While recuperating, he develops the graceful T'ai Chi fighting style. Although many may find the cartoonish, acrobatic fight sequences to be campy, they are elaborate and dazzling. ~ Jonathan E. Laxamana, Rovi

    Like many martial arts films, the fight scenes in this one could use some tasteful editing. There are many martial arts films that tend to overindulge in the fight sequences to the detriment of story flow. There is, however, only one Jet Li, so Li fans should never miss a chance to see him do his thing, no matter how long the movie.

    My opinion is that Twin Warriors is a very good movie.The story is fascinating and the fighting style is great.Is also a good introduction in Tai Chi-a nice style.Jet Li has a very good presentation in this movie that's why i think is the best actor of martial arts that ever was.The idea of becoming crazy to learn Tai Chi is also a great one.I think that crazy people have a clear mind and is true that u can learn one style in that time and make yourself healthy.My advice is to see this movie not once,many more times because it deserves it. Here u got a small commentary: "Jet Li was a monk in Shaolin. In a friendly competition for a higher place in Shaolin, he was betrayed and framed for using weapons (which cannot be used in the competition). He and his friend got kicked out of the Shaolin. They met rebellions at that time of China. His friend betrayed Jet Li and his rebellion friends for money from the China government. Jet Li went crazy and discovered the art of Tai Chi at the recover period. Revenge seem to the only thing he is going to do." So i'm sure you will like it.:)

    Great action sequences from Yuen Woo Ping, the story jumps here and there but who cares. One of the bad guys uses people as human projectiles. That's very much ok in my book.
