Rated NR

Poor Chow Yun Fat. An international superstar with the likes of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hard Boiled, he continues in his struggle for a good American-made movie with this intensely bad martial arts/buddy comedy. Co-starring alongside Seann William Scott (Stifler from the American Pie movies), Fat seems lost as Monk With No Name, a martial arts hero who can defy gravity and deliver crap one-liners. The film shamelessly rips off the likes of Rush Hour, The Matrix, and even American Pie with a stupid pee joke, and its special effects are distressingly sub-par. Fat is rumored to be working with John Woo on his next project, so that’s encouraging. As for Scott, he only experiences mild success in his first foray into action superstardom. He will next be seen in American Pie 3, where he’ll probably get bathed in some type of disgusting bodily fluid.
