Yawn!- "Trying" to speed-read the Fast subtitles before they disappeared, distracted from watching the visuals! Nothing missed though, as this Boring/ nonsensical / "hard-to-follow" movie, just went on-and-on....
I took Karate for 15 years, and much of this floating... nonsense, turned me OFF!- At least Van Dammme/Segal/Jet Li/ Bruce Lee movies are believable! If you are into make-believe, then you just Might like it? I just don't understand the good reviews!?
BTW- I prefer even poor-dubbing to subtitles, as I can at least watch what is happening!
