  1. Rininta Irientantya's rating of the film Shaolin

    ayyyee i mean come on who can resist andy lau? a flick that good enough to watched when you're bored, for the sake of entertaining yourself with the effects and cliche story

  2. Guillermo Padilla's rating of the film Shaolin

    Super production China with action scenes, many action scenes mean. With nice comic moments, good production design, good acting, good direction in the action sequences, but ultimately full of cliches of the genre that make it all comes down.

  3. Junda Mane's rating of the film Shaolin

    An average Big-Budget martial arts epic from the talented Benny Chan. All star cast, Corey Yuen on choreography duty & some outstanding set design. A little long-winded, but serviceable at best.

  4. pivic's rating of the film Shaolin

    This is a fair wire-fu flick. Filled with serious faces, turn-of-the-century milieus and ultra-dramatic family action abound, it's a big power-play with explosions and martial arts. The zen aspects in this are fairly forgettable. On the whole: trivial and the two intros from 0-45 minutes in are the best thing.

  5. HKFanatic's rating of the film Shaolin

    Not a bad film but not a remarkable one either, especially considering the talent involved. An over-reliance on wires and computer effects doesn't help matters much. Andy Lau and Nicholas Tse aren't martial artists and yet they get the most screentime and fight scenes...in a movie about the Shaolin Temple. Huh? Benny Chan has much better movies in his filmography.

  6. Eastern Film Fans's rating of the film Shaolin

    Overall this movie has something for everyone that loves action cinema from the sweeping shots of Kung Fu training exercises to the frantic finale that sees the monks take on the invading troops as they fight for the lives and traditions and the people of the Shaolin Temple.
