This movie is perfect for what it tried and succeeded to achieve: Kung Fu Hip Hop. It doens't pretend to be more than what it is. It's loaded with well cheograped fight scenes curtesy of Cory Yuen, that's both inventive and unique. Imagine, kung fu touch football, a flying firehose, Jet Li puppeteering Aliyah to kick Francois Yip's rear end, and a whole lot of stuff thrown in. Although the plot can be virtually ignored like background music for the martial arts, it is essential in keeping the movie flowing. And the supporting cast is very A list, like Delroy Lindo, Russell Wong and Anthony Anderson who provides the comic relief. Ofcourse everyone will agree that the pairing of Li and Aliyah is impecable. They share such a sweet and innocent chemistry that it shows thru each time they are on screen together. The DVD extras does show evidence that they got along very well off screen and shared mutual admiration. Li even did a cameo on Aliyah music video. The DVD is really worth owning because it is the kind of movie that you can watch again and again when you are in the mood for it. All along you can't help but feel terrible about Aliyah's sudden death. How sad! Buy the DVD and consider it an homage to a pretty girl who could have had a really great acting career.
