DIRECTOR: STEPHEN CHOW

CAST: STEPHEN CHOW, KAREN MOK, CECILIA CHEUNG

Ex-monk Sing (Chow) achieves his dream of bringing Shaolin Kung Fu to the masses by assembling a soccer club for cup competition with his superhuman brothers, and when they face their ultimate test against the aptly-named Team Evil, it’s corporate cheats against spiritual strength. Access to new f-x technology—used in the spirit of camp rather than overawing oppressiveness—brings Chow closer than ever to the realm of the live-action cartoon, but the spirit is classic show biz chutzpah.
