Well, nothing could have burned in my new B&W 601s better than Chris Tuckers screeching for two hours. I like Jacky Chan, and the minute there is a fight between him and Jett Lee (of Lethal Weapon 4 fame) I am so there. This movie pretty much sucks. It came out right around LW4 and it shows. Brett Ratners short film about Mason Reese childhood star was far more entertaining and far shorter (which is a good thing). Jacky Chans acrobatics is pretty limited in this one which is unfortunate. The highlight is a short of him working with Tucker on pistol disarms (very cool). The DD 5.1 sound is very full, making full use of all channels. The transfer is 16x9 enhanced. There is a ton of extras, deleted scenes, commentary, and the above mentioned short film with commentary. Overall, if you like this movie you suck, but you should get the DVD. It is stacked.
