The comedy martial arts film titled ‘The Paper Tigers’ is set to make its first appearance/SVOD debut on Netflix in the United States on August 7th, 2021.
The film will also feature a veteran actor who performed in Cobra Kai.
Produced by Beimo Films and Persistence of Vision Films and released by Well Go USA Entertainment, the martial arts film released in the USA on May 7, 2021 after being played for the first time last year at the Fantasia Film Fest.
It started as a Kickstarter campaign and eventually came to notice of the Streaming giant. It went on to get the required funding and is now ready to hit Netflix in America.
Plot And Storyline
The movie follows three former Kung Fu experts who were expected to have major success in the sport but they eventually became exhausted and no longer were able to have the strength. They end up out-of-shape middle-aged men.
They are reunited after their former master dies. They want a revenge for his death.
The Paper Tigers is directed by Quoc Bao Tran. He also wrote the movie if you are not aware. This will mark his first direction project.
Ratings And Reviews
The movie holds 98% rating on RottenTomatoes which means it carries an unusual Certified Fresh in the review mix.
Among the actors in the movie, Ron Yuan, Matthew Page, Jae Suh Park, Alain Uy, Yoshi Sudarso and Mykel Shannon Jenkins are notable names.
The draw for many here will be the inclusion of Yuji Okumoto in the cast who rose to fame thanks to The Karate Kid Part II in the mid-1980s and more recently reprising his role in the Netflix Original series Cobra Kai as Chozen.
