The Film:
Don't bother to ask what kind of mission these seven guys on the flying motorcycles are on. Who cares if those people going after the disks are Chinese, Japanese, or American. What you really want to see in this movie is Michelle, who simply lights up the entire screen in every single frame she's in.

From her first appearance in the movie -- as a stunning beauty standing on a bridge in dark, to the exciting fight scenes at the dragon dance (see Michelle jumping in the sky) and the river bank (see the funny rope fight with Li Ning; they all get wet), to the intense final helicopter struggles, Michelle just shines with such incredible beauty and charisma!

Again, forget about how the story goes, who the Wonder Seven are, and what they do. Just get the movie for one reason: Michelle Yeoh. See her, be amazed by her, fall in love with her. (I certainly don't blame the leading guy who's in love with Michelle even though they are on opposite sides of the law.)
