Confusion say...what a confusing mess of a movie. wow with so much potential for action the focus of the movie, the two main characters and their motivation, is sidetracked by cliche bosses and their heirs and trying to be a gang war movie. Each scene seem like it was from a different movies slapped together. The ending was even more fed up. I lost track of the original plot with a semi ironic twist of an ending! Huh! Don't wast your time or money!
I was pleasantly surprised by the plot and acting in this movie. Mr. Statham and Mr Li were great. I don't expect reality in movies of this type, merely enjoy the action. Above all, this movie held my interest and ended on a good note. Less profanity would have been nice, but I guess it's the current trend in movies.
Fast, flashy, and then some.
Not a special plot or comedy relief, or sex.
Just shoot, stab, slash, punch, kick, pound and kill.
Lots and lots and it's all entertaining as these films go.
Jet Li is very good.
Some sequences are terrific action.
That's about the sum of it.
You want action, you'll like this film.
This is movie is action packed. Please watch this movie. P.S there is a major plot twist at the end that really makes your go back and think about the movie. Amazing
Another fun thrill ride with two of the best action legends of all time. this movie is worth a watch
...by all the poor ratings. I loved the action and twisty ending.
Surprising ending...great movie if you're a Jason and Jet fan.
A pretty good movie none-the-less.
I like how it is not simply an action movie. I like the story a lot. The acting is what it needs to be to entertain an action appealed audience.
The action was great and a lot of fun to watch.
This is a story that you will never forget. Anne Rice left readers breathless, and the movie is nothing short than that. The producers stuck to the story (smart move) and created the best vampire movie you will ever see. It is worth every penny of what you pay.
great movie really worth the money
this movie shud have the option to buy or rent at the customers discretion o.O
Me and my buddy walked into this movie on accident when trying to go see the simpsons movie hah but we wanted to see it anyway so we just stayed in and enjoyed the ride this movie presented. a little pricey, but itunes always is.
Why can't we rent this?! :-(
can't believe they don't have fearless :[
This movie is pretty bad, not because of Jet Li and Jason Statham's acting, but in the hideous script save for a suprising twist towards the end.
awsome action movie
Good Balance of Plot and Action really the perfect action movie
Great movie! But I still think Forbidden Kingdom is much better. Yet this is still good to watch when your bored.
Excellent action movie. Also a bit of thinking involved. The cinematography is excellent and Brian Tyler did an excellent job with the score. Worth buying. ;)
This is a great action film and is highly under-rated, people just didn't get it, however there is only one flaw, there are no chapter stops! Why I dont know, oh well, I own it and the uncompressed sound is awesome!
Does anyone know why you're not able to buy certain movies and can only rent? I emailed them and they couldn't comment they said.
looks lyke a kool movie...too bad u cant buy it =[
The movie was alright, but they have to get the soundtrack of this movie immediately!!!
just like video stores that have "previously viewed" movies for sale...everytime a movie on iTunes gets...say...5000 "rents", it should then be possible to purchase that film. if iTunes wants, they can make it every 15,000 "rents"...we just need to come to some kind of reasonable compromise on this problem, instead of just ignoring it. iTunes! if you ignore the requests, you're just ignoring your cash cow.
Good action throughout but unfulfilling ending
why do you guys make the rental thing i mean whats the point and if you guys want to keep it on rental at least make it rental and buy on all movies all of the new good movies there all rentals!
This Movie is awsome with the combined mixture of Jet and Jason, lots of action and good stunts. But when can we buy this movie??? How long do we have to wait??? Me and alot of other people would be willing to pay 14.99 or 9.99 for this movie as other comments below me say also.
Lee Anthony Smith (written by) & Gregory J. Bradley (written by) <---- This is why the plot was lame. I guess when you budget expensive actors and huge action scenes with 3 million dollars worth of cars... you run out of money for writers and you end up hiring two first time writers. What was that story about? Did these guys bang out that script over night?
Philip G. Atwell (Director) His only claim to fame was a couple of rap music videos and 1 episode of the shield.
Besides Devon Aoki, the female cast were painful to watch. It's almost funny to see them act. So sad.
Watch it if you want. They even left the ending open for number 2? Yea right. I wish itunes gave refunds. This movies is in my bottom 20 movies ever.
Wow I think with the kung fue and the brutal
american style whoopass in this movie makes
it tottaly awesome. Jason Statham is da Man!
Fun movie if you like the idea of these two together. But where is the HD rental? Did I miss it?
Man why can't itunes allow the option to buy or rent for all movie at the same time..... Grrr!! thats disapointing
I go to the movies expecting to see a movie with a plot and action and everything i got
a bowl of crap this movie was terrible dont waste your money
I think my title says it all!
i havnt seen this movie yet because i think its pointless to spend 4 dollars on renting a movie when you can buy it for 15 and just watch it over and over again. its stupid to be renting all the good movies and buying all the outdated movies.
All you "let us buy" people sound stupid. The choice between Rent and Buy is not Apple's to make. If this movie is only available to rent, that is because the STUDIO did not allow it to be downloaded.
So, quit complaining... it just annoys the rest of us that actually want to read a REVIEW, not a demand for something Apple can't do.
I thought this would ba a cool movie because of the actors but i was wrong...... not worth the time or money
I rented the movie.
It is such a good movie. COol!!!!
This is the first movie I rented from iTunes and I am very disapointed that you can't purchase movies any more. The download was smooth and played almost immediatedly, however the quality of the movie and the playback are POOR. The movie is not even DVD quality, it's more like VHS quality and the playback is jerky.
I will not rent any more movies from iTunes.
Jason Stathom's voice is this movie is terrible. Nitpicky, it seems, right? But when a movie fails to deliver on thrills, action or excitement the viewer turns to....the dialogue and plot! Dialogue was insanely stupid, plot was ehhhh standard boring stupid (it's obvious there's a twist coming, and even if the actual twist isn't predictable, it shouldn't be smug about having one) and Jet Li is very underused in this movie. Cliches are ok, that's generally what people crave from action movies- fan service is acceptable! This movie tried and FAILED. And that made me sad. But really, the raspy-annoying cop-with-an-attitude voice gets really, really old, which knocked this pretty uninteresting movie down to a ONE STAR, gross!
I personally love the rentals but there should be a buy option AS WELL AS a rental option, thats just common sense. not a good movie
I wasn't surprised. It is a very mediocre movie. It was entertaining...good for those who don't want to watch a thinking movie and want to just drool and be entertained. Fight scenes slightly above mediocre, acting...well almost believable. Good for guys who like romanticized movies about Yakuza and Triads. It might find it a little offensive if you're sick of Asian gang movies...this one just gets too ridiculous.
its time for WAR! need to rent this movie
The movie started off with action, then it took about 20 more minutes to get back to the action. The wait was worth every second. Excellent plot and story line mixed with amazing action sequences.
He we go with another action-packed movie by Jet Li and Jason Statham. This movie, with two of my action movie favorite actors, I really was disapointed. With horrible plot I would say not to watch it. The ending is surprising, sure, but it was very stupid. Although I didn't like the story, the action was very cool. Heads getting blown off, cool guns, I enjoyed every part of that. When i rate this movie you know where im coming from when I talk about the plot (bad) and action (good).
If this is going to be synonymous with the quality of Apple rental movies then im out....for good. Very choppy audio and video on a brand new PC. I could barely watch this movie, it seemed like watching a stream that was constantly downloading. Worthless.....
I used 3 seperate audio sources, thinking it may be my sound, speakers or headphones....all the same.
Just when the movie started to get good --It expired!!!!!!!!!!!
I will not rent another movie-it's a waste of money and
I will not keep renting the same movie over and over just to finish watchin.
I rather buy it. Another customer stated we should be given the option to buy or rent. I agree.
Whats up? i can'ttransfer the rental to an ipod? How? Help!!
still. there should be a BUY option. good thinking apple.
let us know when the buy option will be available!.
