This movie rocks! So far it's the most fun and exciting movie of the year. Pierce Brosnan and Chinese special agent Michelle Yeoh are awesome as they team up to fight media baron madman Jonathan Pryce from starting a war between China and Great Britain. Awesome action, awesome stunts, awesome effects (minus two poorly rendered fighter plane shots), and clever dialog make this a definite winner. Michelle Yeoh is wonderful as agent Wai Lin and fortunately didn't get compromised by the Hollywood film model - she still kicks ass. She gets to dish out some satisfying kung fu, although it's still nothing compared to her Hong Kong work.
