About the Movie

A monk and a pickpocket become unlikely allies in this action adventure story. Sixty years ago, a nameless monk (Chow Yun-Fat) was appointed the guardian of a mysterious scroll that grants remarkable powers to those who possess it. After six decades of traveling the world to protect the scroll, the monk must find someone new to assume the responsibility, but as fate would have it, the new caretaker turns out to be Kar (Seann William Scott), a scruffy and distinctly non-enlightened petty thief living in San Francisco. As the monk attempts to educate Kar in the powers and responsibilities of the scroll and the ways of a monk's life, they discover they have a rival for the possession of the valuable scroll. As Kar and the monk fend off their mysterious adversary, they are aided by Bad Girl (Jaime King), a beautiful Russian mob affiliate with amazing martial arts skills and a vested interest in keeping the scroll in virtuous hands. Bulletproof Monk was based a comic book series published in 1999; Chow Yun-Fat's frequent collaborators John Woo and Terence Chang produced.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This is not a movie that sparks questions about the meaning of life. Well, maybe one: Dude, where's my Zen? – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: One of those motley movies that borrows from just about everywhere. – Mark Jenkins, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A movie chockablock with too many elements. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: The fight scenes are routine, the humor juvenile, and the Toronto locales rendered drab through muddy cinematography. – Bill Stamets, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
