Terrible
27 February 2003 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

Iron Monkey was great. Zoro, Robin Hood, meets the Matrix and Crouching Tiger. This one is stupid monkey meets Plan Nine from Outer Space.

A huge let down after Iron Monkey. This film is just plain bad. Don't even waste the cost of a rental and your time to see the first few minutes, when you will be certain you've made a mistake.

We tried to give this film a chance, on the strength of Iron Monkey, but in the end it is just awful. The direction is terrible, the fight scenes are dull--trying to be exciting--the acting is either flat or over the top, the film editing makes it impossible to follow the story, and the film quality is miserable.

Enough said? In other words, rent something else tonight.
