The bizarre must, naturally, be followed by the brutal. I seem to remember Jet Li saying that he had made his last "Kung Fu Epic." I know, I know, I know. There is a difference between the style of film as represented in ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA and the historical film like HERO. I am just saying that apparently historical epics don't count. That, and that I can't wait to see THE WARLORDS.
Speaking of Jet Li. I am eagerly awaiting the August 1st release of the new MUMMY film. Why? Let's see. Mummies, Martial Arts, Terra Cotta Warriors, Magic, Dragons, Pulp, and a Multi-Headed Fire Breathing Dragon...what's not to like? It's even directed by the guy who brought us DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY. Did I mention Michele Yeoh? No? Well, she's in it too.
