RELEASE DATE: 8 OCTOBER 2003
A power beyond measure requires a protector without equal. CHOW YUN-FAT and AMERICAN PIE star SEAN WILLIAM SCOTT team up for this action-packed hit from the producers of FACE/OFF and BROKEN ARROW that is based on the cult comic book series.
Packed with special features including hilarious never-before-seen deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes, this $2.5 million Australian box-office hit has been pumped up for an action-packed DVD release.
The Monk (CHOW YUN-FAT, from CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON) is a martial arts master whose duty has been to protect a powerful ancient scroll. His quest brings him to New York City where it appears his successor is smart-mouthed pickpocket Kar (SEANN WILLIAM SCOTT, from AMERICAN PIE 1-3, DUDE WHERE¹S MY CAR?). Amidst high-flying acrobatics and martial arts action, this comical odd couple has to work together to keep the scroll and mankind safe.
Chow Yun-Fat and Sean William Scott form a formidable team along with Victoria Smurfit to protect the scrool against mankind. Very entertaining, with some excellent action scenes.
