(es) wrote: With a determination to find the ultimate Martial Arts parody film, Shaolin Soccer crossed paths with me and caught my immediate interest. Unlike a film like Kung Pow! Enter the Fist, Shaolin Soccer actually knows how to parody martial arts films. This is because as well as parodying all kinds of conventions from the martial arts genre, Shaolin Soccer also works effectively as a legitimate martial arts film at the same time. With the characters on the hero team being composed of a variety of fictional Kung Fu artists with iconic styles, Shaolin Soccer knows how to make use of them by throwing them in to a sports movie parody. The balance between Kung Fu and Sports themes are hilarious in Shaolin Soccer because of how much they use over the top visual gags and a ridiculous script as the basis for the humour. It is a really over the top film, and I mean that in the best sense of the word.Shaolin Soccer builds its visual appeal off the skilful Kung Fu techniques of its cast, but it gives them a driving force through use of visual effects. Seeing character kick CGI rendered boxes and soccer balls around would annoy some viewers, but it is too perfect in Shaolin Soccer because it uses visual effects which are strong enough to clearly render the visual style on a somewhat realistic level while at the same time intentionally plays with the artificiality of it all a lot. They are played to the most ridiculous extent, but not to the point that Shaolin Soccer becomes too reliant on them because the general visual style of the film allows for a lot of humour to play in to the narrative. Through use of cinematography techniques which play with the melodramatic effect of the film and well timed editing and use of slow motion, Shaolin Soccer successfully works as a visual experience which not only delivers on humour but ensures that the visual martial arts skills of the actors and the entertainment of watching a soccer match. But the most interesting thing about the humour in Shaolin Soccer is that it is played in so cleverly that the film is able to take itself so seriously yet maintain such a ridiculously lighthearted nature at the same time with an absolutely perfect balance which allows a sense of manic energy to dominate the entire experience. Frankly, the stylish directorial work of Stephen Chow is infectious because he clearly has such a sense of passion for the film with his fond taste of imagery full of colour while his screenplay gives the film a hilarious edge and his performance makes him the ideal protagonist of the film. Stephen Chow is essentially solely responsivle for bringing Shaolin Soccer to life, and with his relentless determination to please fans of Kung Fu cinema he succeeds at it behind and in front of the camera. His sense of humour is perfect for the film because it can be easily spread to any country in the world if the dubbing is done as hilariously as it is in the English language version. The melodramatic physical acting of the cast ties in with the mismatched dubbing really well to create a comical sense of melodrama for the film, and it is overdone with the ideal voice cast including Stephen Chow himself doing the English language dub for his character. He hits the mark in every aspect of the film, and so it is such a fun experience to have. The story itself has no real consistency in terms of development and maintains a predictable story arc while the pacing stretches out certain plot points more than others, but the relentless nature of the humour makes the rest of Shaolin Soccer a fun feature which serves as an effective over the top glamourization of Kung Fu and parody of many traditional Eastern movie tropes in terms of story and style.And working under the guidance of Stephen Chow and alongside him as an actor, the cast of Shaolin Soccer pull off a powerful effort.Ng Man Tat does a strong job as the sympathetic patriarch of the story. Clearly intended to be a sendup of the wise Sensei from many martial arts films, Ng Man Tat goes for it in Shaolin Soccer and delivers a character who is both sympathetic and hilarious in the way he captures the over the top nature of the drama in the narrative. He plays to the appeal of audiences and puts in a really effective dramatic edge around the other characters which gives the thin narrative of the film more meaning. Ng Man Tat makes a likable character for Shaolin Soccer.Yat-fei Wong and Lam Chi-chung play at the same sort of angle which is effective in the dramatic aspects of the story as their characters develop and they find ways to surprise viewers with their abilities, whether it be real or working with strings and visual effects. Vicki Zhao also effectively plays at the sympathies of viewers.And lastly, Danny Chan Kwok Kwan is a genial presence. As well as having a quick skill with his arms, Danny Chan Kwok Kwan really plays to the cult audiences in Shaolin Soccer with his resemblance to Bruce Lee, maintaining a similar physique, haircut and even wearing the Yellow and Black Tracksuit that Bruce Lee made iconic when he wore it in Game of Death. Seeing Danny Chan Kwok Kwan rocks the Bruce Lee style for comic effect in Shaolin Soccer really ensures that it plays to fans of Kung Fu and especially Bruceploitation cinema to really effective comic results, even if they're just In small dosesSo thanks to the large amount of work put in by Stephen Chow as writer, director and actor, Shaolin Soccer ends up as a hilarious sendup of Kung Fu movies and sports movies which has just the right level of over the top energy which compensates for its thin story.
