Shaolin Temple 2: Kids From Shaolin (1983)

(aka: Kids From Shaolin)



Reviews and Comments

If you can imagine such a bizarre thing, Shaolin Temple 2: Kids From Shaolin is more or less a martial arts movie for kids. The only relation this movie has with Shaolin Temple is the title and the star, Jet Li. It's a pretty awful movie, about the rivalry between the Shaolin and Wutang schools of martial arts and the tension that escalates when the head of one school has ten or so sons, while the other has ten or so daughters. Two things are just plain bizarre: a couple of musical numbers and an attempt to pass Jet Li off as a kid. At least those who make it through to the end will be rewarded: the climactic fight scene, the movie's single positive note, ranks with the best in Li's filmography.
