Did You Know?

Goofs

In the closing sequences of the movie, when Lasko is uncoupling the carriages, there is no sign of any cables, hoses, or other means of conveying the air-conditioning or alarm system between carriages. Since the plot depends heavily on those items, this is important. See more »

Quotes

Lennart: He came here to live in peace. We should respect that.

Could have been worse
26 September 2007 | by sealyme01See all my reviews

It's not a terrible film. It just isn't that good either. The constant slow-motion throughout every action sequence was incredibly frustrating. The scenes were a bit disjointed at time: just as I thought a scene was actually going to add something useful to the story, it'd jump to another little snippet. In saying that though there were some entertaining moments and hey, who doesn't find kung-fu religion-protecting monks entertaining?

Other than being a little frustrating with just how much better the movie could've been given the reasonable-ish story line and the odd explosion, not too bad a movie. Worth watching if you're procrastinating from doing more useful things
