Chow Yun-Fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Seann William Scott (the American Pie films) star in this heart-pumping action-adventure that bristles with "acrobatic battles [and] solid visual effects" (The Hollywood Reporter)! For 60 years, a mysterious monk has protected an ancient scroll that holds the key to unlimited power. But when a streetwise punk named Kar saves him from capture, the monk thinks he's found a replacement protector for the scroll. Now Kar, under the tutelage of the monk, must unleash his potential as one gravity-defying, sword-wielding,butt-kicking warrior to save the world from the scroll's most avid pursuer.

Having said that, this was a movie with a great message that never knew how to express it except for a few short lines. I give this such a high rating because of the unique story, snappy lines, and some amazing villain work by Karel Roden (as always). With 30% less Seann William Scott and 50% less jump-cuts in each fight and this might have been a 5 star action comedy.
As it stands, the film will mildly entertain you for most of its running time and envigorate you with a clever moment or two before the end.
"It is not about anger, it is about peace",
"Its not about power, it is about grace"
and The humble monk teaching the young loner about the "Unity of Opposites".
The bad guys, led by a crazed rouge Nazi are reminiscent of the Keystone Cops, and the dynamic between Sean Williams Scott and Jamie King could have been developed considerably more. All in all a good "family' martial arts action comedy.
