Not to put too fine a point on it, but "Bulletproof Monk" is a rather large piece of garbage.
December 22, 2010
Violent but cool martial arts movie.
April 29, 2009
This is one piece of derivative, hokey, and really stupid action drivel.
October 18, 2008
An enticing title that perfectly sets up our anticipation for a rollicking martial-arts comic-book fable adventure.

The constantly beaming monk is as good-natured as the script is mindless.
May 3, 2007
The fight scenes are routine, the humor juvenile, and the Toronto locales rendered drab through muddy cinematography.
December 30, 2006
It's painful to watch.

Chow was never a martial arts star back home, but he's a good enough actor -- and an engaging enough personality -- to pass for one here.

Paul Hunter edits his action scenes so much that it's really difficult to see anything spectacular, and the special effects aren't anything to drool over.

The bottom line is, this qualifies as a guilty pleasure.

Too much time is given over to the absolutely dire script.

very childish, and just a little trashy.

Chow Yun-Fat delivers stylish action and finally shows American audiences a sense of humor, but watching Stifler get his kung fu on is just a little too hard to swallow.
September 6, 2003
An uneasy combination of self-help bromides, poorly edited fight sequences and music video-style flash.
August 26, 2003
...nonstop fighting, kicking, punching, and killing, with a dollop of juvenile humor thrown in.
July 31, 2003
If you're a fan of martial arts, and fancy an alternative to the heavy going comic adaptations ahead, then this is your bag.
July 2, 2003
The odd-couple chemistry between Chow and Scott carries the film until the unimaginative buddy formula wears thin.
June 20, 2003
It's supremely ironic: the scroll defeats the body's natural decaying process. In today's movies, so does the computer. It's even more efficient than plastic surgery, but just as phoney.
