User Reviews

the monks were awesome
12 December 2004 | by eatabagelSee all my reviews

This was a perfect family movie my nine and ten year old loved and my wife and i agree.The scene with the monks was so real. the head monks assistant should followed the sword till the very end and becomes like Flynn's asst. And I truly believe he should make the sequel. The reality that all these thing looked so real all the equipment in the Library. Bob kicked some ass he looks good for an elder statesman. TNT is finally putting on what we Americans want for real fun entertainment that make you want to forget the evening news. I have followed the movie of Marc Roskin and Dean Devlan since Godzilla, id4, patriot, eight legged freaks, lap dancer. I think this is the way to go and with an actor as beloved by women and men like Noah you could get even 2 more sequels out of this
