Tai Chi Zero (2012)
From the moment I saw the poster, I had HIGH HOPES!
When I went to the theater to see it… I was really happy. The look made sense… the wild creations of Steam Robots and other Machinery looked like it fit right into the rural village. The electric lights in town… the generator… the way things fritzed out at just the wrong moment.
The way the uber-Victorian dress of some of the characters both matched and stood out like sore thumbs from the peasant dress of the village residents. I was thrilled.
Add to it all the great Kung Fu and the billowing steam clouds from the machines… HEAVEN.
