Man what a truly bizarre movie. Rented "Shao Lin Soccer" the other night and I still don't quite know what to make of it. I visceral, crazy, funny, brilliant and quirky film that I'm not sure you can truly understand without speaking Chinese. Bruce Lee look alikes, kicking, flying and singing all over the place. I'm sure that if I were Chinese I'd get more out of this movie but even the dubbed American version is quirky and cool.

The only thing I can compare it to is "Dodgeball, An Underdogs Story" that was released last year. Both savage modern conventions of beauty, manliness and the "win at all cost" dogma that permeates sports and modern life. I thought Dodgeball was hilarious. I'm curious to hear what other's think as well..
