I know a few folks enjoyed my review of the Steam Punk/Kung-Fu mash-up Tai Chi Zero and thanks to the folks at Well Go USA I have a copy to give away to one lucky reader. If you missed my previous post here are my thoughts on the film:
Tai Chi Zero is the Steam Punk, Kung-Fu equivalent of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.
The film directed by Stephen Fung (House of Fury, Gen-X Cops) is the story of The Freak (Yuan Xiaochao) a man born with the exceptional talent of being able to assimilate any style of Kung-Fu by simply witnessing it or having it inflicted on him.
There is a price however to this gift, after using a brute-force “external” style of Kung-Fu for so long his body is completely out of balance. Unless he can change this by going from an “external” Kung-Fu, to a more “internal” Kung-Fu with all the damage already done to his body, his days are numbered.
So The Freak travels to the Chen Village where there is rumored to be a special flavor of Tai Chi to rectify this. The only problem is when he arrives; he finds the Chen Village doesn’t teach their special style of Tai Chi to outsiders.
What ensues is a hilarious battle royal with everyone in the village. From the an 8 year-old girl to the guy who makes tofu, as The Freak tries to learn the Chen Village’s Tai Chi style by getting beat up by everyone in the village. The film and its fighting bouts feature a bevy of visuals, those who play video games will definitely recognize and enjoy.
