Storyline

For 60 years a mysterious monk with no name has zigzagged the globe to protect an ancient scroll - a scroll that holds the key to unlimited power. Now the Monk must look for a new scrollkeeper. Kar is an unlikely candidate, a streetwise young man whose only interest is himself. But when he inadvertently saves the Bulletproof Monk from capture, the two become partners in a scheme to save the world from the scroll's most avid pursuer. Packed with spectacular special effects and martial arts action, the Monk, Kar, and a sexy Russian mob princess called Bad Girl must struggle to find, face, and fight the ultimate enemy.

Everybody needs a good martial arts movie.
26 November 2003 | by scottbodySee all my reviews

I went into this movie looking for a cheesy martial arts movie. I was surprised to find that the movie had more quality than expected. This is not to say that the production values were the greatest. The movie followed all the asian movie stereotypes but was done better than most cheap movies. Good movie overall, better than I expected.
