Shaolin Soccer (4½ Stars)
This is an incredible film, probably the best film about soccer ever made. After the master of a martial arts school dies the students go their separate ways to live normal lives. Years later Mighty Steel Leg Sing is making money from begging and doing menial labour, but he still practises kung fu whenever he can. He is convinced that kung fu isn't just for fighting, it's the perfect way to solve all of life's problems. When he is invited to form a new soccer team he reunites his brothers from the school to join the team. The world has never seen anything like it. Let the following pictures be a warning to soccer moms. Be careful who your sons are playing against.
