Sit back, relax, and enjoy
1 February 2004 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

If you are in for some entertainment, if you like rap music, and/or martial arts films you will enjoy the music. If you prefer good art cinema, or you really look for logic even in the fun films, this one is not for you. I enjoyed it, but I am not sure that my other, more serious ego would have liked the film in any other situation. This film (can somebody explain me the title) is just entertainment, but what are the James Bond films? 6 out of 10 on my personal scale.
