Shaolin Soccer Steelbook5
Probably the funniest man in the film world. I've been watching Chow Sing Chi for about 25 years now & have seen nearly all of his 50+ filmography. A lot of them directed & produced by him. It's quite hard to describe his films because they are unlike anything or one you've seen before. Their usually visually & verbally hilarious (especially his mo lei tau or nonsense talk). They can have dance routines or songs performed by the cast. Crazy Looney tunes type slapstick, satire, ironic product placement, mad kung fu fights. Basically his films can go anywhere, they are wildly unpredictable. Shaolin Soccer is a great place to start. The easiest way to describe the film is football crossed with the Matrix, but there's so much more to the film. You do not even have to like football to love this film. So do your soul a favour & watch this & I promise you will fall in love with Stephen Chow. Then go & seek out Kung Fu Hustle. The steelbook is very nice - great art on the front, back & inside. There is no embossing, debossing etc & I found the art a bit dull, I was expecting the images to be a bit brighter, more colourful. But it's still a nice steelbook.Report this review
As it says matrix meets football, good fun lots of laughs and good action moves. If you like football and martial arts then you will love this filmReport this review
