Siu lam juk kau (Shaolin Soccer)

Kick some grass!

About bl**dy time! This film... b*stards...

We originally tried to show this film 4 years ago and couldn't for some

unknown reason (had been withdrawn)... now 4 years later and me having

graduated and not at soton anymore UF show it. Aghhh!

Why come see this film... well go to IMDB and watch the trailer:

See? The Matrix/Crouching Tiger meets Bend it Like Beckham. This

looks so funny! This looks so mad! This looks so good!

In case you haven't seen the trailer the plot is as follows (but it

doesn't do the film justice) (and if you have just watched the trailer

you'll know I stole this from IMDB!)

After a fateful mistake costing his career, an ex-soccer player bum meets a shaolin kung fu student trying to spread the word of kung fu. The ex-soccer player helps reconcile with his five brothers, and teaches them soccer, adding shaolin kung fu as a twist. They then go play in a $1 million tournament .

This is one of the best films of the season. This is so very funny. This is better than dodgeball. This has all the CGI of the matrix without the dodgy sequels. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come see this film. I can't so come in my place: you WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED.
