Not since Sandy Duncan's version of "Peter Pan" has such a cinematic masterpiece been caught on film.

The film is a composite of so many genres, techniques, and age-old conceits that it can't help but miss each and every one by a mile.

As soon as the action stops, the actors start to slowly, painfully slowly, drone on with some of the most lifeless dialog of the year.

Despite scrupulous attention to expository detail, Lee fails to dramatize the conflict within Jen, or any of the characters.

Going into the film, I was prepared to be awed by the spectacular martial-arts sequences. But what caught me by surprise was how emotionally invested I became in the characters.

Even without the exhilarating action sequences, Michelle Yeoh's powerful, stoic performance is a wonder to behold in itself.

It's pulp fiction presented in a grand, knowingly humorous style distinguished by star power, a strong female slant and the latest in stunts and effects.

The movie is good, sometimes very good, but I suspect it's a masterpiece only for those who haven't seen all the earlier masterpieces that equal or surpass it.
