Audio is a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. It is offered in both its original Mandarin and an English dub. Clearly, the original language is the way to go, but the dub has its place. It is a good track with solid dialogue clarity and plenty of surround activity which crops up a lot during the fight sequences.
Extras. For some reason the accentuate the replacement Z's in naming the extra features.
- Behind the Zenes. Typical behind the scenes stuff, discussing the genesis of the concept and the production.
- MuZic VideoZ. Yikes. A mash of clips with a couple of, umm, singers. Chinese metalcore and hip hop collide and I swear one of them says he is singing to a pot pie. Mesmerizingly awful.
Bottomline. Now, I did not completely hate the movie, but it truly seemed to be trying to hard to be cool with a story that was not quite ready. There were too many different elements here, from the epic opening battle bit to the flashback sequence that mimicked a silent film, from an animated sequence to added graphics, Tai Chi Zero throws everything at the audience hoping something will stick. It might be worth a watch but it fails to ultimately be memorable.
Very Mildly Recommended.
