(This is for all the people who wrote 'worst movie ever' comments.) First of all: You obviously have yet to see really bad movie. (try the fantastic movie, or hell ride, that should give you some perspective.) Second: What were you expecting? Some Oscar-winning masterpiece, based on a game like street fighter? Please! In what reality do you live in? Anyway. Now about the movie. I'm a huge (and often disappointed) fan of martial arts movies. Having of course seen the 1994-van damme-version, my expectations were low. But i actually liked it! The movie is somewhat mediocre, thank the Hollywood goods for that! OK, so some characters (vega, the two detectives) were underdeveloped and didn't quite fit in. The acting didn't have 'batman begins' quality and the fight scenes weren't all fearless-y (jet li), but so what?!! Kristine Kreuk looked great in those fight scenes. The fights were original, acrobatic and fun. Better wire work as in romeo must die! It (almost) never looked fake. But what I liked most was that there were no unnecessary special effects. (remember 1994? OMG)
In other words: The film worked for me, because it was not trying too hard. Not too much action, drama and special effects. Its not a great film, but decent. Try not to expect too much and you will not be disappointed. (If you don't agree with me, you should go rent movies like the mummy 3 and have a blast with all the terrible CGI)
