The Paper Tigers
From writer/director Tran Quoc Bao, this delightful martial arts comedy features three estranged best friends (Alain Uy, Ron Yuan, Mykel Shannon Jenkins)—kung fu devotees as kids—who reunite to investigate their kung fu teacher's death. Only now they're in their 40s which raises the question: Do you lose your kung fu when you get old, or do you get old when you lose your kung fu? (2020, 111 mins. A Well Go USA release.) Rated: PG-13. View trailer.
