A monk, a punk, a chick. A kick-ass flick?
Erm... No. The tagline should have read: A monk, a punk, a chick. A piece of shit.
This Matrix-ripoff pairs a martial arts expert monk with a pair of street punks to be beat up some bad guys. Surprisingly, there isn't much bullet-dodging.
I really can't understand why Seann William Scott got so many parts at the turn of the century. He was an absolute tool in the American Pie films and was hailed as the young Jim Carrey. He isn't.
Brainless action hokum which has deservedly faded into obscurity.
