Why is this movie ranked so low ?????
3 April 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

i wonder what kind of people watch this movie ??? I think martial arts lovers go out and see this movie !? Why is the ranking so low, because the martial arts is one of the best i've seen in years. good story, lots of action, lots of fighting. what more could an audience want? it was a tough decision to give the right ranking for this movie. Although the actors performance was good, if they have put a jet-Li or chow yun fat in the leading role it would have been a world wide success. one thing i didn't like about it was, that it took place in the u.s. the return of this tyrant is supposed to be a 500 year old Asian myth. Why did this have to take place in the us & why in the city of Chicago? The mix between Asians & Americans didn't bother me that much, but i think an Asian cast would have been better. and one point deduction for the city of Chicago. it would have been way cooler if it took place somewhere in the orient.

My Final conclusion: Martial arts lovers "go to the blockbuster closest to your home and go see this movie".
