"TAI CHI HERO" MOVIE REVIEW

No Comments

Recently, I went to the cinema to watch “Tai Chi Hero” (sequel to the recently released “Tai Chi Zero”) directed by Stephen Fung. I would say it is one of the most refreshingly original films (in terms of its presentation and style) to come out of Hong Kong in a long time. It’s a great blend of popular video-game references, modern rock music and martial arts fantasy. The highly anticipated “Tai Chi Hero” hit the major Hong Kong cinemas on October 25th.

Veteran actor Patrick Tse Yin makes his long awaited return to film with his role as the mysterious Kung Fu Master. Daniel Wu, who is usually more recognized for his good looks than his acting abilities, plays a high monk. It’s a role that certainly downplays his usual handsome appearance and stays true to the character of the original screenplay. He wears torn clothing, has many scars on his face, grows some facial hair and is bald. What does Daniel think about his role? He says, “the look is very cool; it is unforgettable for anyone who sees it. Everyone would then focus on my acting.”

If you decide to watch a movie in the cinema this weekend, “Tai Chi Hero” is definitely a movie worth watching, especially if you are a fan of the martial arts/fantasy genre.

As for US and Canadian fans, you can look forward to “Tai Chi Hero” being released in theaters overseas early next year!
