I have never really been a Jet Li fan. I think he's to one dimensional and he's always the though guy. Not only that, he uses wires in virtually all of his action sequences. When I started to watch this film, i was going to watching it as if i've never seen a Jet Li film before. But my opinion eneded up the same. It was a bad movie, with bad acting and average action sequences. It was just a macho movie, with no point. If you want a martial arts film with all the stunts done without wires and where it's fun and exciting, get a Jackie Chan flick (although his recent couple of films have had obvious wire stunts in them, he is 50 yoou know). Jackie Chan is the best action star there is, was, and ever will be. If you want quality, get Jackie Chan. Garbage, get Jet Li.
