I just watched this on my Dorm System.

What can I say, I really liked the movie. Some find it to be really weird, but I thought it was entertaining.

I also think it does a fantastic job of utilizing surround noises and sound effects. There are tons of "fly around you" stuff. Usually, I have to turn my surrounds up because I enjoy louder surround effects. For this movie, I didn't. There were also tons of impactful fight scenes and so forth. Lots of high twangs and low thuds with each punch and hit. Sure, other movies have their moments, but during the whole movie there are "dude, that was sweet" moments. Plenty of couch-shaking resonences during the entire movie.

Just thought I'd lend a recommendation for a great movie to demonstrate your HT. My friend was like, "Woah, that sounded better than most of the theaters I've ever been to."

I did enjoy the movie very much. The only part they could have left out was the running scene on the hwy where the fat-smoking Kung Fu Master ran into the billboard and lost her bra...

Other than that, it was a great movie...

I tried to watch this movie and had to turn it off after only a few minutes. What little I did watch was a waste of my time.

Wid, the beginning does not give you a sense on how the movie actually ends up about 20-30 minutes in.... I like Steven Segal and Jet Li also, so maybe that is why I enjoyed this movie. I admit, there are some pretty stupid parts, but it does get better after the Kung Fu masters come out of hiding.

Oh man Randy I don't think I could have taken that much pain, 20 or 30 minutes would have killed me.

It took me awhile to watch this movie. I was sure it was going to stink. A friend of mine convinced me to watch it and I'm sure glad he did. Funny and action packed. I think I need to give it a second watch.

Oh, it's definately worth it. The beginning of the movie you are like...wow, this is a horrible movie. It seems nothing gets put together right. In the end it is truly awesome though.

Besides you should just watch it because it sounds good.
