I can't remember why, but when I watched it I had to stop about half way through. Then watched the second half the next night.
1st half was absolutely awesome! Cool storyline. Clever directing. And man-o-man that opening car chase! As I described it to a friend, "if you never thought you wanted a BMW before, you'll forever change your mind after seeing this movie!"
After loving the first half I couldn't wait to see the second. But it was like two totally different movies. I had to check to see it was the same film. Overnight this way-too-cool movie morphed into a hokie kung-fu turkey. I take that back - at least most kung-fu movies have out-of-sync translations to make them entertaining. Perhaps the whole thing just fell apart once they blew the car up.
