Scene of the Week: Man of Tai Chi
Man of Tai Chi was a very underrated film and one hell of an action movie. Tiger Hu Chen plays our main character Tiger Chen, and he does it with the right amount of conflict/enjoyment of his newfound personal freedom in being able to just totally demolish guys with his martial arts skills. Tai Chi isn’t an art that we normally think of as being among the deadliest but he sure makes it out to look devastating. In this scene, he has progressed to the point where he is winning fights and the devious mastermind of the events, Keanu Reeves, is now looking to test his skills against two men. I hope you enjoy it.
Plot: Tiger Chen is a Tai Chi student who is rather rebellious and uses Tai Chi to fight despite his master’s concerns. When the temple where he studies get threatened from modern redevelopment, he fights in an underground fight club to get money the temple needs. However he soon realizes that his employer has other negative motives.
Starring: Tiger Hu Chen, Keanu Reeves
