Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

1.0 out of 5 stars Based on a true story April 15 2004
By Cookies
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Painfully Ripped Off March 3 2004
Format:DVD
There is not a lot of good to say about this movie. The acting - all of it - is dreadful from Fat to Scott to the Nazi character. Moreso that anything the plot is a blantant rip-off of "The Matrix" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"- two movies that are much better than this monstrosity. The idea of a prodigal hero is taken from both of the movies, and Fat is pretty much the same type of character as he was in "Crouching Tiger" but with a worse script. The rip off from the Matrix is made most apparent in the "philosophical" discussions between the two main characters, Fat and Scott: "You're saying the rules of gravity don't apply." => no i am not quoting "The Matrix," this is a line from "BM." The action scenes are a mix of the two movies, as well, with the idea of being weightless from "Crouching TIger" and 'bullet-time' from the Matrix. As I searched I was unable to find any original idea in the movie, but I was unable to find one.
Ultimately, the only redeeming qualities of the movie are the screen presences of the ever-smirking Sean William Scott and Chow-Yun Fat, who clearly struggles for command of the English language.
Don't waste your time with this movie; instead watch the award winning movies, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "THe Matrix" where the material is actually original and well-used.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hokum Feb. 29 2004
Format:DVD
The word hokum originated as stage slang when people put together the words "hocus-pocus" and "bunkum". One of its central meanings is a nonsensical waste of time. The word hokum could have been invented to describe "Bulletproof Monk".
"Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" notwithstanding, Chow Yuen-fat should never have moved to Hollywood. With the exception of that movie, which was partly Hong Kong produced anyway, he hasn't done a decent piece of work since he went there. And he's done less work there in the past seven or so years than he used to do in one year in Hong Kong.
"Bulletproof Monk" is yet another addition to the genre that might be known as lousy movies based on indifferent comic books. It begins moderately spectacularly with a fight on a rope bridge hanging over a ravine. The monk with no name (Chow Yuen-fat) is fighting his master. He proves his worth, and his master tells him he's now ready to look after the Scroll of the Ultimate.
"Whoever reads it aloud in its entirety," says the master, "will gain the power to control the world." The question to ask ourselves is why the deities, whoever they are, created such inflammatory objects in the first place.
This supposedly takes place in 1943. The Nazis turn up to capture it, but Chow Yuen-fat's character escapes, and the movie flashes forward to the present and a nameless city that might be New York but is nameless because this is a cheap movie and the budget only stretched to filming in Canada. Sixty years have passed and the ageless monk is soon to find the person who is to replace him as the scroll's guardian.
The monk, scroll in briefcase, encounters a pickpocket named Kar (Seann William Scott).

1.0 out of 5 stars An utter mess...good heavens! Feb. 9 2004
By D. Mok
Format:DVD
"Tightly edited"? "Unpretentious"? What can I say except that I wholeheartedly disagree with Amazon editorial reviewer Bret Fetzer? Bulletproof Monk is a sorry excuse for a film. Not only does it waste the talents of Chow Yun-fat, but the action sequences are limp and unexciting, the dialogue flat, and the acting just atrocious.
Even The Medallion was a better film, and that's saying a lot. Bulletproof Monk opens with the phoniest-looking green/blue-screen sequence I've ever seen, with Chow Yun-fat (as "Monk") fighting another monk on a bridge. It looks like they are standing on a dance floor painted to look like a bridge over a ravine! The "action scene" following the opening gives you the feeling that you're in a for a very long night. Director Paul Hunter is easily the worst music video-to-feature director I've seen, even lower than Kevin Donovan (The Tuxedo) or Dominic Sena (Swordfish). He seems determined to use every single shot he's shot for any given action sequence: "Is it exciting? Can we see the characters punching, kicking, jumping, firing their guns? Let's just forego all that and cut in every single beautiful composition I shot on set!" Most ex-music video directors are hyperactive, but Hunter has a raging case of cinematic ADD that puts them all to shame. The action scenes are plainly an eyesore because of this. Hunter should be tied to a chair and forced to watch John Woo's martial-arts sequences from Hand of Death and Last Hurrah for Chivalry for a whole year, because not a single one of his frames is ever good for capturing the action. During the subway-platform chase scene, he massacres his footage so much by editing that you don't even know which character is where at any given point.
