The Paper Tigers, a new martial arts masterpiece, just had an enormous impression on the genre, even earning a coveted 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes score. As you can see from the trailer and official summary below, this film masterfully blends humor and action, with an outstanding ensemble that delivers. Danny (Alain Uy), Hing (Ron Yuan), and Jim (Mykel Shannon Jenkins) were best friends as teens. After 25 years, each has matured into a middle-aged washed-up man who appears to be one kick away from tearing a hamstring—and is no longer concerned with ideas of martial arts or childhood closest buddies. When their former master is assassinated.
It was a long and winding road. We had a three-hour initial assembly, which is usual for assembly since you’re setting down the facts of everything. Especially when the performers are doing a lot of improvised scenes. So there were a lot of various possibilities and things like that. And there were certain scenes in the tale that were subsequently removed. So, first and foremost, we needed to find a method to shorten the tale and simplify it. Number two, as you mentioned, is attempting to strike a balance between various moods and tones. So that’s always a good argument to make. You may go too far with this one, or too far with the comedy, and the whole thing becomes unbalanced. IMDB
