What did everyone think of this movie? Its not a Bruce flick, but, its very well put together. I just ordered it on DVD from Suncoast.

The story was interesting, as were the special effects. But I don't know why the press made such a big deal about it. it was just something new and different, which goes to show how starved we are for innovative film entertainment in the U.S.
Maggs swings, it's a drive deep to left! The Tigers are going to the World Series!!!

Quite good, but not as great as I had imagined. On second viewing, the girl becomes very VERY annoying....

The jumping like a marionette was sort of stupid - my favourite fight sequences are not the chases across the rooftops, but the fight between the girl and the Michele Yeoh character.

The "trashing a restaurant" sequence was a bit too typical for Chinese martial arts movies, utterly pointless, but slightly entertaining.
