| Big Trouble in Little Renner!
I came across this movie when I was browsing Amazon Prime's movies. Big Trouble in Little China is my favorite movie, so when I saw it had three actors from that movie in this, I had to see it. When I looked up the cast, I was shocked. It has Lo Pan, Egg Shen and Rain from Big Trouble In Little China. It also features Jeremy Renner, the lead in the show Cold Case, as well as the great, Vegetable Lasagne, from Seinfeld! Oh, and also the best part of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze, Ernie Reyes Jr, who oozes charisma as the best fighter in the monastery.

The first five minutes are pretty rough, but once the story gets going, it's actually a really enjoyable movie. It follows a drug dealer who gets "assassinated", only to be found by some monks and nursed back to health. They teach him their ways, and he goes from being a bum to a good man.

I don't want to spoil anything, because the story is fun to watch unfold. I will just say that the writer/director/star of the movie did a great job with this movie. It's low budget, but he was able to make a very enjoyable movie.

I highly recommend it!
