I would classify this as a great action movie for kids that enjoy kung fu like dragonball Z. It is not realistic. It is very much like the movie equivalent of reading a comic book and if you suspend you disbelief and enjoy the movie for what it is, a chop suey kung fu flick.. then it is worth watching. There are 6 kids doing fantasy shaolin in this movie and that is bound to make the kids enjoy the movie more than anyone else. This is not a ground breaking film on any level, including the fight scenes, script and special effects. It is so bad it is entertaining to watch, once you understand it is a typical comic book style kung fu, complete with silly villian and kicks that defy gravity completely. Jet Li's other movies such as Kiss of The Dragon, Black Mask, his cameo in lethal weapon 4, and "The One".. they are much larger budget so have much more to offer. In any case, Jet Li has brought a lot to the arena of martial arts entertainment and I applaud that.

Aka legend of the Red DragonReviewed bydilbertsupermanVote: 7/10
This is an okay Jet Li flick if you're into crazy wire work instead of real kung fu. I enjoyed it, but Jet Li has done better. He's also done worse. The kid who played Jet's son was great, though. Go check out Fist of Legend (original dubbed version is the best) or Tai-Chi Master (released in english dubbed form as Twin Warriors). I think someone else suggested this as well. Frankly, Jet's screen persona has always been kind of wooden. He's a martial artist, not an actor. So why does he hardly ever get to show off what he's REALLY capable of? If you want to see a Jet Li movie thats even wilder, crazier, and has more action (albeit wire-work) then check out Kung Fu Cult Master.
Sometimes when I expect a movie to be only tolerably good I am pleasantly surprised -- not so with this movie. I wanted to see some amazing Jet Li action, but instead all I saw was a movie that was completely pointless and ridiculous. People fly through the air to impossible heights; little kids can jump into the air and float. Jet Li movies do not have to be like this for he has amazing skill and can perform more impressive fight scenes without the aid of lines. There were also some unneeded comedic elements including scenes with young boys doing impossible feats. These scenes may have ruined the movie completely, as they detracted from the main event. Jet Li didn't do anything nearly as impressive as what I saw in some of his other movies, and he didn't have much screen time. If you want to see a real Jet Li movie you should see Fist of Legend or Tai Chi Master.
