Shaolin (2011)


Embarrassingly bad, recycled shit, which would have one fooled early on, due to decent camerawork and atmosphere. Sadly, soon enough we see some bad acting and dramatisations. Not even the martial arts rescue it. The brutality is laughable.

No, I must find something positive. Ummmm... I like the sworn brother, the one who proposes arranged marriage. The villain's performance is quite good as well, but only before he gains power, because afterwards he brings some unexciting swagger, you know the one that has been done how many times before.

It's okay to rehash stuff, but if you do it worse than everyone else, eish! I hate pretentious movies. This one wanted to be a memorable epic, a masterpiece even, but it's a cheap imitation. Disgusting.
