After being humiliated in the ring by a dirty kickboxer who pulled down his shorts and then hit him, a martial arts master decides to travel to China and enter a monastery where he may learn the Shaolin form of fighting. The film then veers into “Karate Kid” territory where the novice humiliates himself at every turn, is tolerated as a foreigner, and still comes out a champion. The monastery teaches non-violence, but everyone knows that sooner or later the student will catch up with the bad guy.
American Shaolin – fantastic movie. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you’ve returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. But not American Shaolin. The movie is openly dreamlike, and like most dreams it moves uncertainly down a path with many turnings.
American Shaolin ‘s one of the best movie films ever made, I love music. The director is insanely talented guy. The sum of detail and little aspects of the movie that you can long time later is seriously amazing.
…Damn, I need to watch these movie online again. It was so good! I have not found American Shaolin movie full elsewhere so I uploaded it here, now you can see this movie online for free.
