Product Description

He has no name. He protects a powerful secret. Now, to fulfil an ancient prophecy, he has found the one who’s supposed to take his place – and it’s the most unlikely candidate of all.

In this non-stop action adventure, the Monk (Chow Yun-Fat) is a Zen-calm martial arts master whose duty has been to protect a powerful ancient scroll that holds the key to unlimited power. Now, faced with finding the scroll’s next guardian, the Monk’s quest brings him to America. It seems according to an ancient prophecy – and to his disbelief – the Monk’s successor is a charming, street-tough wild card named Kar (Seann William Scott). As the Monk instructs Kar in the ways of a protector, the unlikely duo become partners in shielding the scroll from the evil power-hungry armies who try to take it. Amidst a flurry of high-flying acrobatics, martial arts action and quick-witted humour, this comic odd couple have to work together to keep the scroll safe.

From Amazon.co.uk

The tremendous charisma of Chow Yun-Fat anchors this entertaining comic-book romp. Bulletproof Monk centres 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) 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 humour, good for a mindless evening's entertainment. --Bret Fetzer

Personally, I would consider it a necessity to watch this drivel with the aid of alcohol as it helps pass the time and upset the natural accordiance you'd expect from spending 1.5 hrs in front of a TV/cinema screen.
From the concept of a movie, consider Golden Child as the first marriage of Tibet vs Holywood American Hero. Now, not saying Eddie Murphy did a bad job but he certainly set a precedent, ie end of world scenario to naive american low-life with noble heart suddenly makes good and Tibet ever grateful.
Bring on 'Bulletproof Monk'. An absolute no brainer from the start, however with a title like that you know that it's the kind of movie that should only start an evening; not finish it.
This is a pioneering move from neo-brat pack Sean William Scott (Road Trip, 'Dude, Where's my Car', and American Pie) to a non purile college-t!ts-and-a$$ excuse movie and would happily give him a chance to express his ability as an actor. Unfortunately he seems entirely shackled in his type-cast role and can't show enough presence to break from the 'Stiffler' stereotype. He acts just enough to make his character plausable but not enough to make him beleivable.
Now, those of you who know Chow Yun Fat and his accolades will cringe by seeing him in this sham of a farce. You can almost see him with his tongue firmly in cheek as he abides by the directors every requirement. If I mention the talents of veteran actor 'Mako' and his cameo in this film in the same paragraph, you may have some real imagination of the grief Bruce Lee had to become an accepted actor in Holywood.
All in all the film follows an already established plot, with jokes already told and action scenes copied from 20-30 year old Jackie-Chan films. It might be a hit with your pre-teen kids, but I wouldn't use your nephew as an excuse to see it.

Format: DVD
As Jackie Chan was having success at the box office with the Rush Hour movies and Sammo Hung was enjoying moderate success on TV with Martial Law, Chow Yun-Fat had entered Hollywood with a little less huzzah with The Corruptor and The Replacement Killers. After Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon became massive around the world, he once again became a target for Hollywood and was teamed up with Seann William Scott for Bulletproof Monk. The pair have a good rapore on screen and the plot, although weak, is acceptable enough for it not to detract from the good action choreography. The acting is a mixed bag with nothing particularly outstanding, but Victoria Smurfitt is best in a smallish, but important role and Mako a close second, though he is criminally underused. As with any action film, there is also some laughably bad acting, in this case it is from Marcus Jean Pirae as Mr Funktastic. If you're after a way to pass the time without needing to put any effort into following what it is you are watching, this is a good option. 3/5

Monk With No Name (Chow Yun-Fat, of Pirates of the Caribbean fame) for 60 years he is being perused by a member (Karel Roden) of the NSPD (National Socialist German Workers' Party.) In his escape, he runs into a potential replacement or two. Lots of made for TV type pseudo-martial arts, Skillful females as well, the monk gets a body part bit by the bad guy (you can say he was chewing the fat.)

There is lots of action from gravity defying twists to overkill helicopters. Therefore, you can see that money has been thrown at this film. Too bad, it is so mediocre. However, for people that keep up with cultural literacy this film is a must for people that read the comic book.

I only watched the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare to other versions.

Format: DVD
Heath Ledger turned down the role of Kar. I kept imagining him as "The Joker" playing the role of Kar, giving slow twisted lines. The film has a predictable juvenile plot with simple dialouge, plain acting, and silly CG fighting. By all means I shouldn't like this film. However, in spite of all those reasons, the film seems to work very well, perhaps due to editing and directing.

Jaime King plays Jade, a mafia princess, who is one of the good guys. Seann William Scott stars as Kar, a pick-pocket who has learned fighting from watching marshal art films. Yun-Fat Chow plays a monk with a secret he must protect from the evil doers who want to dominate the world.

It is a film that would have that 13-16 year old appeal.

Format: DVD
I was instinctually drawn to this movie because it involved a monk and Chow Yun-fat. I love eastern philosophy because it embeds a lot of life truisms and lesson on inner development. On that front this movie did not disappoint, but it was a great action packed movie as well. The movie is based on the comic Bullet proof monk. The bonus features - the deleted scenes and the making of the movie added a lot of depth to my appreciation of the movie. Sean William Scott and Jamie King the two supporting leads were a surprise discovery for me and they did well to support the Monk played by Chow Yun-fat. The movie had a lot of energy and spunk, I reccommend.

i bought this dvd as a gift for my son, having not seen it before i did not know what to expect when he put it on! but i sat and watched it with him and he thoroughy enjoyed it and so did I, and to be honest im one of the sad people that when i find a film i like, i watch a couple of times over and usually see bits of the film i had previously missed! it is a very good film and the extras on how they made the film has helped me understand other films as well as this film!
