Ancient Chinese secret, huh? A Tibetan monk (force-of-nature Chow Yun-Fat: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) charged with protecting a scroll with deadly powers takes on a streetwise pickpocket (appealing doofus Seann William Scott: Evolution) as his apprentice on the same day the ex-Nazi (a scenery-chewing Karel Roden: 15 Minutes) who needs the scroll to take over the world catches up with him. And you thought you had a tough day at the office. Gloriously, exuberantly silly, this chop suey of fortune-cookie philosophy and acrobatic martial arts not only respects its comic-book roots but celebrates them with outlandish abandon. You’ll be hungry again half an hour later, but so what?
