Invincible heroes are boring
16 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Well, in response to the previous comment, I am a martial arts fan and I did not like this movie. The main reason is stated in my one-line summary: when the hero slaughters anonymous opponents by the dozen, as he often does here, it's not exciting - it's boring. There are only two good fight scenes in this movie: the one with the bald guy and the last one. These are the only ones where the villains put up much of a fight. As for the "no wires or special effects were used in the fight scenes" disclaimer, well, they used a lot of camera effects which in martial arts films is almost the same thing as special effects, as for the "no wires" part, it would be a lot more impressive if the lead (or anyone else) actually did anything that REQUIRES wires in the first place. Don't get me wrong, he obviously has the moves, but he doesn't do anything that I haven't seen before from guys like, say, Keith Cooke. The script is ambitious but ultimately silly, and the direction is often clueless as to how to shoot a fight scene. The actress who plays the hero's love interest packs a mean right punch - I'd like to see her again. (*1/2)
