Shaolin (2011)

Summary: Strong Casting makes Strong Film
Strong casting works to help big time action movie director Benny Chan spin a new take on the Shaolin Temple story made famous by the 1982 Jet Li film. This film is more fictionalized and draws some poignant dramatic plot points to the screen. At times, the film is over the top; and at times, suspension of disbelief is challanged. Production values are very high quality in all aspects of the process. Put some extra butter on the popcorn and let the light wash over you.
