is based on a three-comic book series from the late 90s; that
should give you a clue what you're getting into.
For myself, I didn't think the characters
were mystic or funny enough to hold my interest, then mix in
dull dialogue with wire work/ martial arts and you lost me.
I do think the young kids as young as 6
or 7 will love this picture (all the way up to 14 or 15). So
let's give this to the young folks and I'll bail out.
With characters more two-dimensional than
the graphic novel series it comes from (and villains even more
so), Bulletproof Monk defies convention, logic, and even
the laws of physics.
It's one battle after another as the monk
with no name, sworn to protect the holy scroll of ultimate power,
battles Nazis in the 21st century. (what?)
And then it gets silly!
Is this a buddy/buddy, kung fu, action/adventure
Or is it a poor excuse for a movie?
The one thing I liked about this movie,
Bulletproof Monk, was the star's opening martial arts
fight scene on a rope bridge, which I thought was very inventive
and well done.
After that, it was all downhill for me.
The story's entire foundation is based
upon a plot hole so big, almost anyone can identify it, and may
recognize how pointless the entire film becomes.
