The transcript below is from the video “Shaolin Soccer 2001! Then and Now 2022 How they Changed 🎬” by Stars Timeline.

Stars Timeline:

My all time favorite movie WAS “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”…that was before I saw Shaolin Soccer. As a diehard Hong Kong cinema fan, I have been wanting to see this film since its release because I like Stephen Chow and wanted to look at his idea of combining soccer with Shaolin Kung Fu. And the film overall is a success!!! You have comedy, action, sports, a little romance (Stephen and Vicky Zhao…even though it’s not seen much), and all around fun!!! You gotta love the dance sequence and the singing…Siu Lam Kung Fu Ho Yeah!!! This is without a doubt my new all time favorite movie!!! If you haven’t seen it…get up and see it!!!!
