In legendary Chen Village, everyone is a martial arts master, using their powerful Chen Style Tai Chi in all aspects of their lives. Lu Chan has arrived to train, but the villagers are forbidden to teach Chen Style to outsiders, and do their best to discourage him by challenging him to a series of fights. Everyone, from strong men to young children, defeats him using their Tai Chi moves. But when a man from the village’s past returns with a frightening steam-powered machine and plans to build a railroad through the village at any costs, the villagers realize they may have no choice but to put their faith in Lu Chan… who has a secret power of his own.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Fast and mostly fun, the movie also seems compulsively too much, throwing everything it can think of at you, lest it fail to entertain.
Rotten: "Tai Chi Zero" is often more distracting than diverting with its everything-goes aesthetic - there are strains of steampunk, manga and silent film comedy, with video-game touches.
Fresh: Give some points to a genre flick whose style mash-up reflects uneasy relations between Asia and the West just as its fracas-intensive plot tries to dramatize them.
Fresh: Fung is enjoying himself so much that he doesn't want the movie to end - and his delight is infectious.
They Have Stepped Up HIGHLY Recommned
This was really good. It may have been over the top with the video game symbolances but overall it was a good movie. I love how the story comedicly foreshadows a next part with a hint of a fight sequence at the end. Then you get the trailer for the next one during the credit role. This is worth your time and money.
Good story, great fight scenes
There is an engrossing story, coupled with amazing effects interlaced into the fight scenes. The steam punk feel to it is also interesting. If you don't like subtitles, you'll be dismayed, but the story flows so well, you'll find yourself begging for the subtitles. Good film.
Got some bad parts but also has great parts in this movie. If you've seen Kung fu hustle then you will most def love this one.
