A Sci-Fi martial arts story that tries so hard to top "The Matrix" it becomes laughable. The fights and action scenes are so obviously staged or computer generated that you have to wonder why they cast noted martial arts actor Jet Li as the main character. They could have put John Goodman in the role and no one would have noticed. I can’t say it was bad, though, because I did enjoy it.
