Movie Info

This comedy is quite a change for Hong Kong martial arts hero Jet Li. Li plays Chow, the writer of a pulp-style adventure serial, who seems to be failing in both his career and his marriage to Monica (Rosamund Kwan). The film also enacts out Chow's story as he writes it: Li also plays the fictional Dr. Wai, a daring adventurer in the tradition of Doc Savage or Indiana Jones. As Chow tries to churn out his story, Dr. Wai pursues a mysterious scroll called "The Scripture Without Words"; the film's transitions between reality and fantasy is reminiscent of films such as Brazil and The Princess Bride.

The plot was actually kinda interesting. The execution however was formulaic & boring, with the '90s technology & poor joke-punches prevailing in Hong Kong Cinema.

Not Jet Li's best, but still fun.

I gave this an extra half star just because I like the cast. Anywho, the movie is a fun and silly movie. The story made sense, even if it was a little out-there, and the special effects were really good, especially for a movie during this time. I'd recommend this for those who like old Jet Li movies or are fans of any one of the main cast.
