    Tai Chi Hero is the sequel to Tai Chi Zero, and while it sets us up for a third film in the trilogy, it provides a definite ending that makes the films work as a diptych. The production has certainly calmed down since the first one which was often over-busy with pop-up video elements. Now that the hero has been accepted by the village and we're invested in the characters, we don't need all those bells and whistles to keep us interested. Hero has a more traditional look and feels less like a Kung Fu Hustle-type spoof. There's still some craziness, but it's mostly through its anachronistic soundtrack and the steampunk (and Renaissance punk) elements that it achieves it. The action is on the same level, of course, with Sammo Hung directing the action and Yuen Biao making a gravity-defying appearance. 10 years 6 months ago
