TAI CHI HERO
2012 | China | Action, Martial Arts | 100'
Lu Chan is still trying to find his place in Chen Village, the legendary town where everyone is a martial arts master…and Chen-style Tai Chi is forbidden to outsiders. But since he helped save the town from a frightening steam-powered machine, Yuniang, beautiful daughter of Grandmaster Chen, agrees to marry Lu Chan and bring him into the family. lt's only a formality, though – she is the teacher, and he is the student – and that suits Lu Chan just fine, as the mutant horn on his head gives him incredible kung-fu power, but leaves him dumber each time, and closer to death.
