I got my dvd from Chinatown-san francisco.

they even sell minority report 2 and indiana jones 5 dvd's there. :)

It was shown in asia quite a long time ago. Its very funny and I am sure you guys will like it. I think they are going to release it in US soon.

10-07-2002, 02:58 AM

I thought that it was a basic short...

You know....

Download it even if it was 50 to 60 Megs...

I have seen Shaolin Soccer.. it really is worth of watching! ;).. really cool effects :drool:

10-07-2002, 04:52 AM
So, which way did they decide ? Is it to be Shaolin Soccer, or Kung Fu Soccer ?

10-07-2002, 06:27 AM
They're keeping the title as Shaolin Soccer after numerous switches between that and Kung Fu Soccer..

It's going to be released in the USA on April 11, 2003. It says it'll be dubbed in English.. Scary :surprised

THe unfortuant thing about the DVD version is that it's the short theatrical release of Shaolin Soccer. There was an original long release that had some extra hilarious scenes and developed the relationship between Stephen Fund and Vicki Zhao more.

That film rocks!! hilarious stuff :) I saw it was on the Softimage reel too

i am happy to see more information about Asia film industry.
Shaolin Soccer , Nice film:beer:
best wishes.:beer:

SS is an excellent film. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good HK flick( or just for the CG alone). Don't wait to see the dubbed theatrical release :/ BTW, have any of you guys/gals checked out "The Legend of Zu" kinda funky storyline, but it is a beautiful film

10-07-2002, 10:14 AM
The two key HK CGI companies who did most the effects.



Shaolin Soccer is selling at around $6 US for the VCD in Asia. Original.

Shaolin Soccer Rules!!!

I've been waiting so long for a north american release. I hope the dubbing doesn't ruin the comedy too much... even so the visuals are so great... it makes me want to sing! and dance thriller! haha (in joke)

what fun


10-07-2002, 12:56 PM
Don't worry about ruining the comedy, worry about ruining the film!!

Watch it with subtitles like everyone else :wip:

10-07-2002, 12:58 PM
Yes I watched the film in sub-titles and t'was great, very Crouching Tiger like :) don't wait for the english dubbed version, get it as is from your local Chinatown movie store :D


10-07-2002, 03:34 PM
that was such a great movie. I wouldnt wait for the sub, knowing the us, they'll screw it up. anyway, go get it in chinatown,

10-07-2002, 04:10 PM
I agree. Get from Chinatown

10-07-2002, 05:14 PM
It's a great film :buttrock: The effects rock and it's really funny. Especially the egg scene :thumbsup:

10-08-2002, 05:15 AM
ooohh ss, excellent film, its very hard to find in the states now though, since miramax has distro rights and has forced removal of it from all the shelves(in anticipation of the cominc release)

you can still find it here and there, but never legally. I was lucky to know a buddy who makes frequent trips outside of the country...

10-08-2002, 03:10 PM
Haha! It's about time they show this fantastic movie across the globe. As for the dubbing, well.... I don't expect much. This movie screams asian flavour in the voices! Jus go get subs instead.
Anyway, kung fu movie rules! :buttrock:

10-08-2002, 03:33 PM
primus- the egg scene.... hee hee, crazy asians.... :)

10-08-2002, 05:26 PM
this movie was insanely funny, and the effects were the best I have ever seen in an Asian movie ( except perhaps, Crouching Tiger ). Find this DVD!! you will make loads of new friends if you do.

'Kick the soccer!'

10-09-2002, 04:20 AM
where can I download the trailer?

10-09-2002, 05:07 AM
no...dont if all of you get DVD in Chinatown,there will no bodies watch in Cinema when the film on showing?

watch in Cinema the visual effect will be more powerful!!

10-09-2002, 05:20 AM
I think a LOT of us are still going to see it in the theater even if we have the dvd.

10-09-2002, 07:32 PM
that great~~:beer:

10-09-2002, 08:00 PM
im watching the VCD at work my coworker brought it in, the effects are amazing and its so funny too. He said that its been out for a year or so. I read the 3D Festival article first, and he said he had it. The vcd has the additional footage i guess. Im going to grab the dvd, this is a keeper! along with Avalon (a french film, i think, with excellent CG too)

well...back to Shoalin Soccer =)

10-10-2002, 02:28 AM
Yes. You are right. It has been shown in Asia quite a while ago.

10-10-2002, 04:32 PM
waitwaitwait avalon! I remember reading about that 4 years ago as a rumor on aintitcoolnews. Can anyone here tell me about it? was it good? I was really excited when I saw the teaser long ago.

wehat was is about anyway? ...

10-13-2002, 12:31 AM
