Check this beauty out:


Just from the title it's potentially the best film ever.

i'm pretty sure we've talked about it on here before?

I watched it quite a while back - good fun film.

You've already seen it? It's just coming out next week?

Ah, ok I have found the thread.


Maybe it's just getting it's first cinema release.

It was on TV almost every night when I was in Korea. I never watched it though 'cos the trailers made it look really shit and there were no English subtitles.

You really don't need the subtitles to watch it.

Saw this last night (chose the full length cantonese with subtitles not the shorter dubbed version)

Simultaneous WTF?! and :lol:

What a crazy weird fucked up film, but I liked it. :

I saw this yesterday! Amazing. I have to admit I loved it.

Favourite bit...

Some guy calls "Iron Legs" over to help him lift what looks like a very heavy refrigerator on to the top os a stack of fridges. "Iron Legs" just boots this fridge into the air and it lands neatly on top of the stack.
Brilliant. The football games somehow manage to look feasable too. I recommend this film to ANYONE

It is really, really weird though.

It's not that weird. I mean it's exactly what you'd imagine Shaolin monks playing football to be like.

I mean stuff like the random singing and dancing and shaolin bun making and the girl with the madly scabbed face....

Oh yeah, that girl, who's scabbs seem to miraculously disappear later on (despite removing her make up)

I'd also forgotten about the random singing and dancing....
They got some bad ass moves in that film.

Oh and the shaolin folk band. ha ha ha
