I first watched the trailer of this movie, which made me really excited to watch it. Add to that, that it stars Jay Chou, who I really liked(as an actor) after watching the Green Hornet. Unfortunately, the movie didn't live up to my unreasonable hype. The story was alright, though it felt like they were trying to cram in too many things into it...including time travel. The acting was better. The music was relatively mediocre. As for rewatch value, im not a person who rewatches most things, but for this i'd say don't rewatch it. Overall, i'd give this a 6. I guess it's alright for a Saturday night where you have nothing better to do or if you're a fan of Jay Chou.

This movie is exactly as awesome and terrible as it looks. It's a kung fu action comedy that doesn't take itself seriously. The music is upbeat and makes the action scenes more fun. The characters are ridiculous and over the top, making for some laugh-out-loud moments. The morality is unambiguous. The plot is predictable in a really satisfying way. It's a great movie to make fun of and laugh about with a group of friends.

Content warning: there is an alcoholic character; his alcoholism is there for comedic value and as a plot point, but never really addressed as a problem
