Product Description

Product Description

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.


The tremendous charisma of Chow Yun-fat anchors this entertaining comic-book romp. Bulletproof Monk centers around a monk with no name (Chow) dedicated to protecting a sacred scroll that can give world-manipulating power to anyone who reads it. A hidden Nazi has been pursuing the scroll for 60 years and has finally caught up with the monk in present-day New York City; meanwhile, the monk suspects he may have found a disciple in a petty thief (Seann William Scott, Dude, Where's My Car?, American Pie) who's learned kung fu from watching double-feature chopsocky flicks. Don't let the presence of Chow Yun-fat lead you to expect much substance--this doesn't have the emotional scope of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or the visual panache of Hard-Boiled. But Bulletproof Monk is a cheerful, tightly edited, unpretentious action flick with flashes of humor, good for a mindless evening's entertainment. Also featuring Jaime (a.k.a. James) King (Blow). --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

So bad it goes beyond bad to that special hell of movies where the director finds a way to inflict crap at a whole new level.
This is ubercrap taken above the level that most stupid directors can only dream about.
The possibility of a normal human watching the entire movie without some sort of massive hemorrhage is very slim since the brain would be acting in the best interest of the human.
If you inflicted this movie on someone who had just regained their sight, they would be praying for a quick and merciful return to the former state of blindness.
The music in the movie is so bad that many people, who were though deaf, cried out in pain. Not hearing, but feeling the sonic defecation as it de fouled the very molecules air around them.
If you have a enemy in your life, send them this movie. After they see this your enemy will know you are without mercy. They will fear you.
A bag of wet rocks shows more range and depth of acting skill that Seann William Scott. His acting is so bad it makes you question not only the existence of a god, but any reason for anything in life at all.
I truly belive that when CUT was called, he would stand stone still and drool, waiting for commands from the director. Amused by things with lots of bright colors and balls of tinfoil.
The screenwriter has all the skill that only some grade 3 children have. Only those children in a very short bus.
I notice the DVD comes with a directors commentary. I can only assume that it contains the unintelligent yelps and screams of the director as hurls his tattered notes at the microphone and removes his eyes after seeing what he has done.
Chow Yun-Fat looks as if doing this movie was as much fun as a man who is striped naked in public and has his manhood laughed at by passing crowds.
The story you ask? It has Nazis stealing the youthful power of monks to become all powerful!
Even retarded people would think this movie was stupid.

Ever wonder why hot dogs come in packages of ten, while hot dog buns come in packages of eight? Well, obviously that's a question that has plaqued us all for eons, but BULLETPROOF MONK may have found the answer.
60 years ago in Tibet, The Monk with no name (Chow Yun-fat), a mighty martial arts warrior, has been entrusted with the Scroll of the Ultimate, which has some kind of incantation written on it. If anyone were to read it aloud in it's entireity, they would gain ulimited power. Obviously, not everyone would use this power for good, like the evil Strucker (Karel Roden), who wants it to rule the world. He's been chasing the Monk every since he obtained the right to protect the scroll.
Now, in present day New York City, Strucker is still chasing the Monk, who must soon find a replacement protector for the scroll, since one person can only guard it for 60 years at once (One of the perks to guard the scroll is that for that 60 year period, you don't age one day.)
And the Monk may just have found the right man for the job. Kar (Seann William Scott) is a poor pickpocket with impressive martial arts skills, which he has gotten from imitating kung fu movies at the theatre (aptly named the Golden Palace) where he is the projectionist. Kar, it seems, keeps on fulfilling prophecies that the next protector of the scroll must. All the Monk has to do now is teach Kar how to use his skills for good, and that if you truly believe that the laws of gravity don't exist, then they don't.
BULLETPROOF MONK is one of those movies based on a comic book that nobody has ever heard of (along with TIMECOP, MEN IN BLACK, THE MASK.) But loaded with more (...)to satisfy any martial arts buff, it is simply not a movie you should allow yourself to not see. You can count on it.

There are movies that are made for specific audiences and then there are movies that want to play to all audiences but end up appealing only to a certain demographic group. This applies particularly to Bulletproof Monk, which at first glance, is a movie for teens. Its got martial arts, guns, Matrix-style fight scenes, a hot babe, and even a plot that involves Nazis and a sacred artifact a la Indiana Jones.
But where as the Indy flicks could definitely play to all ages (even with all the bloody shootings and gory death scenes that must have stretched the PG ratings in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Temple of Doom), Bulletproof Monk is strictly a kids' flick. What does that mean? It means if you're over the age of twelve, you'll probably find yourself bored by the film.
How exactly does this movie narrow its appeal only to kids? Well, there's the story, which involves the "sacred artifact which must not get in the hands of evil." Yeah, sure, I know what you're thinking, the Indy flicks all had that same premise, too. But there's a difference. The first and third (not so much the second) truly gave the viewer a good idea of what was at stake if the prized possession fell into the wrong hands, and better yet, the macguffins were far more interesting than what's given to us here. I mean, come on, which would you prefer: the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail or a sacred scroll?
Chow Yun-Fat plays the protector of the scroll, a job that sounds like it'd suck considering it means living a life on the run. But there are benefits, notably the fact that he's impervious to bullets and can't age so long as he's the scroll's guardian. His only mission is to protect it while searching for the next guardian. That's where Seann William Scott comes in.
