With tons of action, eye-popping special effects, and nonstop laughs, here’s a hilarious martial arts comedy about a team of misfits who take their best shot at winning a championship! Sing is a skilled Shaolin kung fu devotee whose amazing “leg of steel” catches the eye of a soccer coach! Together they assemble a squad of Sing’s former Shaolin brothers inspired by the big-money prize in a national soccer competition! Using an unlikely mix of martial arts and newfound soccer skills, it seems an unbeatable combination … until they must face the dreaded Team Evil in the ultimate battle for the title!

Computer generated special effects have seldom been so giddy as in Shaolin Soccer, a gleeful fusion of kung fu and a classic Bad News Bears sports story. A former soccer star–whose “golden leg” was broken by a hired mob–assembles a team of former students of Shaolin martial arts, whose assorted skills (indicated by their nicknames, like Mighty Steel Leg and Iron Head) lend themselves to the swift interplay of the world’s most popular game. Along the way, the team’s leader (Hong Kong comic superstar Stephen Chow) meets a sticky bun baker (Vicki Zhao) whose kung fu is the equal of any of his teammates. Shaolin Soccer is supremely silly–in the final match, their opponents are called Team Evil–but that’s part of the fun. American movies rarely achieve this perfect balance of the absurd and the sincere. A delight. –Bret Fetzer

I did a quick photoshoot of the Scanning Department’s management staff. No pay, but it got me outside in the sunlight for a bit, so that’s nice. Then I had the first session of the Amber game I’m running. It was more of a set of one-on-one discussions with the players to get a feel for their characters and help them get them solid. I assigned homework (watching Shaolin Soccer) to one of the players. Next week, we’ll actually play.

Shaolin Soccer, Vol. 1
Young kung fu adept “Sing” is an honorbound disciple of the legendary Shaolin Temple. His sole goal in life is to find a way to package the philosophy and physical teachings of his beloved Shaolin kung fu so that contemporary masses can learn, benefit, and apply these doctrines to their daily life. When he hooks up with a former soccer champion he quickly realizes that the world’s most popular sport may just be the vehicle to spread Shaolin kung fu all over the globe. But first he must assemble a team worthy of the Shaolin name. Yet his secular, out of shape former kung fu brothers are far from impressed with his idea. Kung fu action and sidesplitting comedy are heading your way!
