Dolph should have stuck to golf. (For this movie at least)

I am always a fan of martial arts movies but this one was an exception. Brandon Lee's random quirky comments and the extremely slow fight scenes made it more like Kindergarten Cop then Bad Boys. Which is fine if you are trying to achieve a Kindergarten Copesk movie, but I don't think that's what they were going for.
With such a large budget they could have done much better. I think most of the funds went to shirtless ladies and pyrotechnics. I never realized that the spinny, round, knife throwing target was so flammable and dangerous! You learn something new everyday.

Overall this movie was a big "meh!" in my books. The story was non original, it had lame lines and boring fight scenes. They didn't even use Brandon Lee and Dolph Lundgren to their full potential for martial arts. Who knew Japanese warriors use guns! Oh and let's not forget about that terrible leather jacket and the too big suits everyone wore!!!! Yuck.
I give this movie 1.75 bulging biceps out of 5
