Shaolin

US release date: September 9

How many over-ambitious warlords in early 20th century China? Ridiculously too much, and they just can’t stop killing each other, along with the ever so unlucky peasants.
Thanks to those kindhearted humorous Shaolin guys, and one Jacky Chan that cook their mantous, horrible war becomes a tiny bit more bearable. They can even convert a fierce bloodlusty well-maned warlord into a compassionate peace-loving amitabha chanting, good emotionally moving orator, bald monk (then proceed to fight rifles, cannons, and gatling guns with sticks, blades, and bare fists!). After all, the real irredeemable bad guys are that western imperialist gun-trading army, right?

My Rating: 4/10
