I didn’t remember ‘Bulletproof Monk’ although I’ve definitely seen it before. I rashly thought that Chow Yan-Fat’s presence would temper the overly bouncy Seann William Scott.
The first sequence was largely ripped off Indiana Jones – temples, a helpful monkey, Nazis and treasure that Nazi’s want. This theme continues for the rest of the film, which relies on minimal martial arts to temper William Scott’s overactive mouth.
As a vacuous popcorn film it almost works, but it really should have been called ‘Dude, where is my monk?” so audiences know what to expect.
