One of the best movies I've seen recently
13 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a breakthrough performance for Jet Li. It was nice to see him get away from just being the amazing fighter, and seeing him in a little bit more of a serious role. Of course Morgan Freeman was simply brilliant, and Bob Hoskins did an amazing job as the villain.

This movie had a lot less action than I had anticipated, but the story behind it makes it much better than any amount of action/violence could have. The theater was full of people laughing, gasping or being COMPLETELY silent as one. It was the perfect mix of action and comedy within a heartfelt story.

I recommend this movie to any fan of any movie EVER!
