Jackie and Jet-Together On Screen

Oh HELL no! There are so many things wrong with this trailer I don't know where to begin. First, why couldn't it be an Asian American kid who transports back to China? The studio obviously cast this kid because they couldn't get Shia LaBeouf. Second, why does the kid get to kiss the girl? Because he's white and white guys always get the Asian girl! Directors cut all romantic scenes between Jet Li and Aaliyah their in "Romeo Must Die" (2000). It's a complete double standard, folks. Jet and Jackie starring in the same film is supposed to be a cosmic aligning of the stars. This movie feels more like a slap in the face. Thank goodness we have Jet Li's other new film, "The Warlords" to tide us over.
