werd.

Saw it tonight with a few friends.

At one point when they're in his house it's night-time (when they first enter) and like 10 minutes later it's morning again. Did I miss something?

How about the ending? ;)

that part got me too..

so.. heres a guy who can punch through solid steel.. and some old black dude is going to punch him to death?

He can dodge bullets with ease.. and they think by pointing a gun at him that he is going to calmly walk back with them and go to prison?

jesus

he can't dodge bullets at point blank range, that's the best movie I've seen in a while

um.. yeah he can.. scene in the house.. the one from the commercial. Two bullets, he dodges one, deflects one with his gun. Later, dodges another fired by the cop in the motorcycle scene..

fight scenes were actually good.. but plot/action were.. just.. terrible

Wait, you expect more from a Jet Li movie? Do you go to see Jet Li fight, or do you go to see him sound like a freaking dumbass when he speaks?

I am not making fun of his accent. Jackie Chan sounds just fine when he speaks.

Jet Li sounds very affeminate, and emotionless.

His perfect role? Lethal Weapon 4... he shuts up and kicks everyone's ass :)

edit: Twin warriors was good too!

good point.

although I wasn't terribly impressed with his moves, more with the sfx. Chan's moves are better, imo

It was okay, but the end was a little weird. I wouldn't pay the 8 bucks to see it though.

Jackie Chan > all

and he practices his lines all the time. His english isn't that great. Watch Rush Hour outtakes (1 or 2 or both) and you see how bad he messes **** up... or if you've seen him on Leno...he has a heavy accent. The only reason he he sounds normal in his movies ise because he practices them A LOT

Before I hear any mo Jet Lei bashing, go watch any of the "Once Apon a Time in China" movies there are like 4, well 5 if you count the "prequel" Iron Monkey. They own all and just watch it in Chinese and read subtitles. God dam American producers ruining Jet Lei

The once upon a time in china series is awesome. tough to find though.

If Iron Monkey's a prequel, then so are the Drunken Master series which star Jackie Chan. They're all about the same character, Wong Fei-hung, at different stages in his life. Iron Monkey, when he's a kid. Drunken Master, when he's an adolescent. The Once upon a time in china, he's supposed to be a young man.

Pay attention to Wong Fei-hung's special move, which is sometimes referred to as the "No Shadow Kick". It's pretty different in every movie since not all the movies are by the same directors, and different martial artists play Wong Fei-hung. So everyone has they're own interpretations of what that move is :D
