Synopsis:
An all-comedy kung-fu extravaganza featuring Hong Kong superstar Stephen Chow, Shaolin Soccer is an entertaining mix of football, martial arts and awesome special effects. 'Mighty Iron Leg' sing, a garbage-man and Shaolin follower, is looking for new ways to bring the wonders of martial arts to the people. After a string of failed attempts, he comes upon a winning combination: using Kung-fu skills on the football field. Teaming up with a down-and-out ex-football star, sing gathers his former Shaolin brothers to put their powers to use on the pitch - despite the fact that none of them know a thing about the beautiful game.
With a little help from a Kung-fu fighting Baker, the rag-tag team set out to win The Coveted China Cup from the nefarious team evil.

Insanely hilarious with amazing kung fu special effects! - Shaolin Soccer review by IW

Spoiler Alert
25/10/2016

Stephen Chow has managed to capture the unique Hong Kong culture both in humour and in the extremes of its society within this insanely funny and brilliantly quirky masterpiece. The special effects are both creatively futuristic and observes kung fu traditions in equal measures. Every kung fu sequence are superbly choreographed with genuine moves all done to the highest standard which exceeded expectations of a comedy. This is one of the funniest Hong Kong films I've seen and it will go down in history as a modern classic.

absolute rubbish - Shaolin Soccer review by AB

Spoiler Alert
30/09/2017

Not funny, not even amusing. Poor acting, awful dubbed track, dreadful storyline (and obvious), worthy of nothing excepting to be consigned to the list of worst ever films made in any country.
