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?
Rotten: One of those motley movies that borrows from just about everywhere.
Rotten: A movie chockablock with too many elements.
Rotten: The fight scenes are routine, the humor juvenile, and the Toronto locales rendered drab through muddy cinematography.
This Movie Has Everything!!
Gratuitous male semi-nudity, tattoos, martial arts, nazis, redemption... Oh, and of course, LOVE! Highly Reccomended!
This movie is pointless Seann William Scott has no talent except for R-rated movies featuring pie
I thought this movie was a success. Chow Yun Fat played his part very well as did Sean William Scott.
