SHAOLIN IDIOT: Stephen Chow (SHAOLIN SOCCER) stars as a bumbling actor who winds up taking on the Yakuza in this frenetic martial arts comedy. Charming as always, the king of the underdog action comedy scores again in this lesser-known work.
THE EVIL CULT: Jet Li stars in this kung fu fantasy whose circuitous plot, adapted from a story by Yin Jong, boasts such delirious developments as kung-fu cannibals, evil nuns, invincible heroes, and killer autoharps. Li plays Mo Kei, a young man born into the conflict between two warring factions who are each trying to obtain the To Lung and the Yee Tin, two swords which, when possessed by the same owner, will render that person the the Supreme Master of Martial Arts. Featuring fantastic images, such as an old kung fu wizard who occupies a giant living sphere, and amazing wire fu battle scenes, KUNG FU MASTER is an often confusing, exhilarating, and entertaining movie.
