Jet Li can act!!! :O
14 April 2000 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Out of all of Jet Li's films... this one shows off his acting talent than his martial arts. This film focuses way to much on the bland plot which is why your left only to deal with his acting which isn't that bad for someone that went from wushu champion to the acting gig.

Out of all the movies in my Jet Li collection... I don't suggest this one to anyone thats looking for a hardcore fighting film. Granted the last fight scene is very intense but it's only the last 10-15 mins of the film and it's full of patented Jet Li trademarked moves like his belt as a weapon and his hilarious 'bitch slaps' to the face. Most of the film is plot and slapstick humor.
