Review by Steve Rhodes
1½ stars out of 4

If you've been waiting for THE RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK to be remade as a bad -- as in merely bad but not hilariously bad -- kung fu film, wait no longer. BULLETPROOF MONK is the answer to your strange wish.

Chow Yun-Fat plays the "Monk With No Name" who is guarding an ancient scroll with great powers. The silly plot, set in the present day, has a group of Nazis out to capture the scroll. AMERICAN PIE's chief buffoon, Seann William Scott, plays a pickpocket named Kar who becomes the monk's klutzy sidekick.

The monk dishes out cheap epigrams like, "Forget everything you know about the universe. ... All you have to do is believe." With these little tidbits of wisdom, Kar is able to rise to the occasion and float into second story windows. Gravity, you see, is just a state of mind.

Clumsily edited and poorly shot, the film offers the viewers little to laugh at or to enjoy.

BULLETPROOF MONK runs 1:43. It is rated PG-13 for "violence, language and some sexual content" and would be acceptable for kids around 10 and up.
