The Monk (Chow Yun-Fat) is a Zen martial arts master whose duty has been to protect a powerful ancient scroll. Faced with finding the scroll's next guardian, the Monk's quest brings him to New York City where - to his disbelief - it appears his successor is a smart-mouthed pickpocket named Kar.
A charming, street-wise wild card, Kar (Seann William Scott) enjoys his life of no responsibility. As the Monk instructs Kar, the unlikely duo become partners in protecting the scroll from a power-monger who's been chasing it for sixty years.
Amidst high-flying acrobatics and martial arts action, this comical odd couple has to work together to keep the scroll - and mankind - safe.What the critics are saying:

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »
