Kung Fu might be timeless, but these three middle aged men aren't.

A perfect blend of heart, action, and comedy. I expected this movie to follow the basic tropes of any good Kung Fu movie: main character has sets off on a quest to regain his (or his master's) honor and with the help of likeable sidekicks he saves the day.

The Paper Tigers managed to still use this trope but go above and beyond its execution.  We see how tradition, friendship, and family are the driving force behind what it means to not sulk in the age of life, but finding new ways to preserve that strength and pass it on. While also giving belly laughs and quality fighting choreography on top of that.

Fans of action comedies (like the Drunken master) will absolutely delight in this modern Kung fu story.
