The winner of the first of two JPFmovies give away contests picked Jet Li’s 1993 classic: Tai Chi Master a/k/a Twin Warriors. Good choice Silver E–there are those who say Twin Warriors is without a doubt Jet’s Li’s finest Shaolin movie and I don’t necessarily disagree with them. Li does some of his finest martial arts sequences in this flick and manages to make them look effortless. Twin Warriors also turns what could be a depressing film about two friends who take opposite paths and lightens it up with a segment where Li goes crazy and partakes in some hilarious shenanigans. First he believes he is a duck and hides underwater in a fountain. Then he believes a pillar that holds up a building is his long-lost Shaolin master. He even get mad when at a weeble-wobble `Mr. Tao’ doll when it will not answer his questions.
But I shall say no more since Silver has tentatively agreed to review the movie for us after he gets a chance to watch his new DVD. I know we are all looking forward to it.

I hope Silver’s tentative agreement becomes a firm yes. I would love to read what he has to say about Twin Warriors (a much better name for the film than Tai Chi Master don’t you think?). This is one of my very, very favourite films of all time.

It is a great one, and I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts that he gives us his thoughts.
