Shaolin Soccer 2001 Review

The movie is manic, at least tripolar and desperately in need of help. Of course the screw-loose tone is the picture’s true appeal. The story of a Shaolin martial-arts enthusiast (Stephen Chow, who also directed) who enters an underdog team into a prestigious soccer tournament, the picture even shows you how a well-placed kick can help you parallel-park your car.

While there are now better special effects, I kind of like the simplicity of Shaolin Soccer’s simple digital videos because they kind of add to the humor of the story. The ritual humiliations that Sing and his ad hoc family are subjected to are so laughably brutal they could have been lifted from »Down and Dirty Pictures,» Peter Biskind’s book detailing Miramax employees’ suffering. Iron Head (Yut Fei Wong) has a bottle broken over his head in a restroom after botching his janitorial duties.

Cartoon design, an exciting theme, a high RTP rate, and a dynamic main game have made this product by PG Soft incredibly popular on the market. The playing field is designed in a 5×4 format and has 25 paylines where the prize combinations are formed.

You have the super-villain (even in name) Team Evil and a host of enemy players facing off against a uniquely perfect team of odd balls that have “powers” which allow them to excel. In addition, you have the kind of unique romance of between Sing and Mui (Zhao Wei) which doesn’t develop like you’d expect in a film like this (or at least an American film).
