Reviews


75
The A.V. Club - Noel Murray
The story's fundamentals remain solid, and the battle between the village of kung-fu experts and an army of 19th century technophiles is so cleverly staged and exciting that the inevitable sequel (already in the works) will be welcome, as will any future martial-arts movies that Tai Chi Zero may inspire.
75
New York Post - V.A. Musetto
Tai Chi Zero is loads of fun to watch, especially a battle in which watermelons, bananas and other fruits and veggies serve as flying weapons.
67
The Playlist - Oliver Lyttelton
It won't linger in the mind longer than it takes for the credits to roll, but it's a lot of fun while it lasts, and we're genuinely looking forward to part 2 at this point.

NPR - Mark Jenkins
The dialogue is merely functional, and not always delivered convincingly.
63
Philadelphia Inquirer - Tirdad Derakhshani
Tai Chi Zero, the first film in a planned trilogy, will leave hard-core fight enthusiasts wanting. But it's a droll, pleasant diversion all the same.
