Everyone needs a good laugh, cheering up and watch something that’s feel good. Next month Altitude Films will release Quoc Bao Tran‘s  Martial Arts comedy The Paper Tigers, today we get a look at the UK Trailer. A kung-Fu comedy for the underdogs…with dodgy knees and hamstrings!

The film follows three Kung Fu prodigies (Alain Uy, Ron Yuan, and  Mykel Shannon Jenkins) who have grown into washed-up, middle-aged men.  Now one kick away from pulling their hamstrings. but when their master is murdered, they must juggle their dead-end jobs, dad duties, and old grudges to avenge his death.

Our genre genre film editor Bradley Hadcroft watched the film at 2020 Fantasia Film Festival. Bradley gave the film a 4 star review describing the film as “The Paper Tigers is just the kind of regressive catharsis we all need right now.” We’ve been excited for this film since Bradley’s review mixing old school martial arts and comedy. A perfect mix, perfect escapism chaotic fun with laughs, potential cult film in the making!

As teenagers, kung fu disciples Danny (Alain Uy), Hing (Ron Yuan) and Jim (Mykel Shannon Jenkins) were inseparable. Fast forward 25 years, and each has grown into a washed-up middle-aged man seemingly one kick away from pulling a hamstring — and not at all preoccupied with thoughts of martial arts or childhood best friends. But when their old master is murdered, the trio reunites, soon learning that avenging their sifu will require conquering old grudges (and a dangerous hitman still armed with ample knee cartilage) if they are to honourably defend his legacy.

The film stars Alain Uy, Ron Yuan, Mykel Shannon Jenkins, Matthew Page, Andy Le, and Yuji Okumoto. Altitude Films will release The Paper Tigers in the UK and Ireland Digitally from 20th September.
