The storyline is pretty cool and purists of Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Chow Yun Fat are going to be angry at the US movies because such movies don't do justice to what talent they have demonstrated on the HK movies they have been in and I truly understand that.
Another thing is people might feel the MATRIX style fighting hurts this movie. I don't think so. Personally, some fight scenes are a exaggerated and I agree with that but a lot of the other fight scenes are very awesome such as the scenes in the stairs, the football scene, the fire hose scene...awesome!
Others maybe upset that the interracial relationship was not strong enough and were upset there was no kiss scene between Alliyah and Jet. We asked Jet about that and he said that in the end (without spoiling the movie for you), after a bad situation happens to a family member, should you be kissing a girl you just met. So, Jet had a good reason for that. [Note: You can our interview with Jet Li at AsianConnections.com]
So, however you felt about the movie, to each their own. I really enjoyed it! In fact, at the theater in San Jose/Santa Clara, it was packed and people gave it a standing ovation. I'm happy to see Jet's first debut in a lead role for an English movie.Read more ›
Not bad for a DVD upgrade. Like I said, the DVD looked really good, but I needed me some HD Jet Li to get me jazzed up for Expendables 2 this weekend so this Blu-Ray did not dissapoint!

I purchased this movie for my daughter because she's a huge Aliyah fan. She loved it & watches frequently.Published 7 days ago by Ody
It's too bad that this was Aliyah's best movie. She was taken too soon. Queen of the Damned, she's in it, but it was not good for her. Read morePublished 16 days ago by JO JO BROWN OF PHX
