Good movie. This was one of those Shooting Gallery Series films that was only supposed to run a week. It got picked up for a longer release because people responded well to it.
Well, that's just like your. . . opinion, man.

Agree, super good film. And yes, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead sucks...
Jack Burton: What's in the flask, Egg? Magic potion?
Egg Shen: Yeah.
Jack Burton: Thought so, good. What do we do, drink it?
Egg Shen: Yeah!
Jack Burton: Good, thought so.

Brilliant film.  Great to see what you can do with a good cast and a few sets.  Clive Owen is superb.

I think I'm with MrTBC on this one...I don't think I totally understand the film...

Because while I did really enjoy it, I don't understand why everyone is calling it brilliant.


I tried to follow some threads that made me think it was doing a mixed, layered sort of thing with the film's Jack story and the novel's story of Jake ( la Adaptation).

But that idea didn't follow through to the end. Or maybe it did and I just missed it?

If I'm supposed to take it all on face value then I kind of dislike Owen's character and that takes some of the fun out of it.
