Quotes

[experiencing a sudden change of heart due to the power of Buddha]
Y. Y. Go: You know, Suzuki, I'm suddenly... bored with my life. Fed up with the racings of yin-yang. I've used up this air. Something has started inside me to move. You feel that way, too? Something new, strange? Something... useful. Now what could I have to do with anything useful?

Fools! Can't you see this is better than Austin Powers? This is James Bond Lite, for those who can't keep up with the intricacies of a regular James Bond storyline. It's got everything including lesbians, large Chinese men wielding large Chinese cleavers, a guy who just won't die and sexy action (various tastes appeased). And don't get me started on the soundtrack. I felt like I could Do It, whatever that It was.

I am pray that this gem will be rediscovered and spawn a "Making Of" collectible DVD compilation (in widescreen). The acting is superb, but the screenplay needed a final revision. Perhaps M. Night Shaymalan can re-release it with Mr. Bridges playing the role of Mr. Go.
