Hey all,

We just watched The Paper Tigers on Netflix. It's about three Kung-Fu prodigies that get older and... life happens, and they lose touch with the art (well, two out of three, one transitions to being an MMA instructor or at least, he works at an MMA gym). When their sifu is killed, they try to track down who did it and avenge his death.

It relies on some of the martial arts mysticism that I know can turn off a lot of folks, e.g. one of the main traits of the bad guy is that he uses "poison fingers," which is basically a one touch death. But if you can get past that, there are some nice themes around martial arts being a venue for friendship and growth.

One fun thing about it: Matthew Page, who portrays Master Ken on YouTube, has a solid role in the movie, and has some of the funniest moments in the film.
