    Mike Clark USA Today

    Action star Chow Yun-Fat's latest is as thin as the buzz cut he sports in Bulletproof Monk. show more

    Philadelphia Inquirer

    The worst sin is the way the film borrows and corrupts the gravity-defying action style of Yun-Fat's international hit, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." show more
