When Fait jumps through the window of the building he rode into with the blue ATV, he has to clear a low wall to go through the window. You can see him ride up a ramp to get through the window, but there is no ramp there. It was edited out but it is still obvious that he goes off a ramp. See more »

Good for what you would expect.
27 August 2003 | by (?) – See all my reviews

Ive seen a lot of bad reviews for this film and i am sick of these dorks that only give monsters ball and other films of the genre high ratings because of nudity and "good scripts". This is an action movie wit jet Li and it delivers what you would expect. Hell DMX even attempts to use martial arts and his acting is certainly improving as is Jet Li's. Combine Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds and this is what you get. The fights are great (Jet vs the champions of UFC), the comedy is there (Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson) and the film is certainly entertaining so if you want a mindless film with lots of action this is it. Damn Monsters ball. I give this movie a 8!
