The movie is bland and for a movie which had such an original idea, such cool action, and great action stars like Jason Statham, which I'm a fan of, and Jet Li, the movie is bland. The movie seems very much targeted at fourteen year old boys with its cartoon fight scenes and tame violence. Often times the movie is w-a-a-ay too colorful for a science fiction film and becomes comedic at certain points. For example, when Yulaw kills Lindo's character, later on when Statham is in the alternate reality, he meets the same character as a gas station attendant. Yawn! The romance between Li and Gugino is very far-fetched and lacked any chemistry to keep me interested. The fight scenes are very pedestrian and lack any originality; often times the fight scenes relied heavily on computers prompting you to remember "The Matrix" rather than enjoy what you're seeing before your eyes. I was never impressed which helped this movie suffer greatly.
This is an interesting and enjoyable popcorn
flick that will kill a good hour and a half. Don't expect a masterpiece but it
will keep you entertained.
