Los Angeles Times
An infectious knockabout kung fu comedy with amusing special effects combined with breathtaking stunts.

USA Today
Shaolin Soccer's infectious style has a way of lifting spirits. You don't have to be a fan of soccer or kung fu to enjoy it.

The story is the heart and soul of this film. Forget the hype about it's insane kung-fu style or it's *roll-on-the-floor* comedy, there's a real message here. Secondly, the mix of visual effects and practical ones make it a feast for the eyes....
