Not for me

ProChow-Yun Fat

ConsThe rest of the film.

I’ve been watching martial arts films since I was a kid. I grew up with them, at a time when they weren’t so big in Hollywood. When Jackie Chan was working with Yuen Biao, and Jet Li was making amazing films like “Once upon a time in China”. The early work that not a lot of people have seen...

ProSeann William Scott. In a vest. Sweaty.

ConsQuite silly in places - very dodgy wire scenes

In an isolated monastery atop the Tibetan Mountains exists an order of monks with a grave purpose. For centuries, the monks have protected an ancient scroll, which is destined never to fall into the hands of mankind. The scroll contains scriptures that are so powerful they could enable the owner...

Some days I return home from the office very tired, open the little panel at the back of my head, remove my brain, place it into a thimble next to me, and put an action film on to give my eyes something to do. Being a fan of martial arts films and comic books since childhood, this film that...

ProFunny lines and cute guys

ConsLack of story

Bulletproof Monk is another comic book adapted for the big screen. It stars Chow Yun-Fat, Seann William Scott and James King in a comic martial arts movie. If you do not mind a limited plot or enjoy Jackie Chan style movies then this may be one you will enjoy, especially as the interaction...

Consthe script and delivery

The intriguingly titled Bulletproof Monk is a film version of the comic book. The blurbs in various magazines said it was an interesting fusion of styles. ‘Interesting’ it certainly was. It involves a Tibetan monk (Yun Fat Chow) who has inherited the task of protecting a powerful...

Well the monk may well have been bulletproof but the film certainly wasn't. I just about made it to the end (although I was third out of the door at the end) although I did sympathise with the three who couldn't go the distance and left two thirds of the way through. The shame of it is that I...

ConsThe unbelievable plot, the script

This is a light-hearted, rather frothy film, which is great fun as long as you concentrate on the fight scenes and ignore the howling gaps in the plot and some fairly weak scripting. I think that if you're in a good mood when you go to see this film (as I was) then you'll enjoy it; if you're not...
