    It makes me mad when people say I turned and ran like a scared rabbit. Maybe it was like an angry rabbit, who was going to fight in another fight, away from the first fight.

    Just saw it last Thursday. Definitely worth seeing.

    There's some REALLY bad acting, and the first couple of fights aren't that well choreographed, but the final fight makes up for it very much. The chase scene easily rivals that of Jackie Chan's early 70s/80s movies.

    Gets a thumbs up from me.

    I was impressed with most of the fight choreography (except for the horrid one where the "big bad guy" threw cups, etc, at Ting).

    I thought the acting was marginal and the chase scenes pointless. Sure, he can run and jump and flip and it is very impressive... but if the guys chasing him can keep up just by running normally, what's the point?
    Royce can choke as many people as he wants. He'll never have a cartoon as cool as Jackie Chan Adventures.

    Does anyone know who that big guy with the really bad perm is?

    For some reason, he seems familiar to me.

    he's just jealous 'cause he didn't think of it...

    he's too busy digging up the corpse of the Kungu TV show for t-shirt ideas...
