Movie that had potential
14 January 2007 | by ivhenryviSee all my reviews

I thought it was an OK movie with a lot of potential. This movie could have been amazing: good storyline, great set/props, good martial arts choreography, and a few big name actors (Ewan McGregor and Alicia Silverstone). However, with the exception of Alex, I thought the main characters were played by the wrong people. For example, Mickey Rourke was the wrong person to play an ex-bullied guy who turned into a computer inventor. The other flaw I thought the movie had was the action: the fighting was choreographed well, but it wasn't realistic. It was a good movie regardless, but if it had a better cast I would have liked it more.
