Tai Chi Master, 1993
Starring: Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, Chin Sui Ho
Director: Yuen Woo Ping
Plot: Childhood friends and students Junbao and Tienbao are expelled from the Shaolin Temple. While Tienbao joins the military and becomes a general, Junbao decides not to join him and becomes a rebel. After a betrayal the two become enemies.
Pretty cool movie, though it is underrated among critics compared to other Jet Li movies. The first time Michelle Yeoh and Jet Li worked together in a movie, which back then was as epic as Jet LI and Jackie Chan working together. I got to say that it was unfortunate that the actor Chin Sui Ho didn’t get to be a bigger star. Cool fights, though it’s pretty funny to be able to see the wires in some fighting scenes.
Trivia: Michelle Yeoh’s first period movie. All soldiers are in fact soldiers and not extras.
