    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A Kung-Fu movie with many chinese martial arts stars, but doesn't have a very solid plot that it's too cliche and vague, besides that the concept of chinese humor in some action movies doesn't really gets in my mind... have some fights with a general coreography, and mixes some comic style graphics and approaches in the movie. I prefer the more serious movies... be advised, the movie have a hook to a sequence. Expand

    Despite its lousy script, Tai Chi Zero has an unyielding amount of nonsensical fun and excitement, and full of intentionally hysterical characters that overshadow any miscues, providing sufficient kung fu entertainment.

    This is the perfect movie to run in the background for the eye candy, but the story is Soooo weak. Again, a director that cannot find any balance between FX and content, confusing content with FX.

    Just a piss poor script that on first viewing, effectively kills time.

    Manages the curious feat of being at once relentlessly energetic and almost continually uninvolving; the title more or less sums up the amount of pleasure to be had here.

    Often more distracting than diverting with its everything-goes aesthetic - there are strains of steampunk, manga and silent film comedy, with video-game touches.

    A martial-arts ad­ven­ture with more video-game and comic-book DNA than the traditional kung fu flick, Tai Chi Zero is good, if empty-headed, fun.
