Jet Li busts some heads in the action flick Black Mask. The film is presented in a very nice 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Artisan's work on this disc is excellent, save for a small amount of speckling in the image. Otherwise, this is a very solid-looking transfer that sports dark black levels and bright color patterns. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and is very aggressive and bombastic. Directional effects are utilized often with the bass coming in low and loud. Those in possession of a home theater system won't be disappointed by this 5.1 mix of the film. All aspects of the audio track are free and clear of any hiss or distortion. No alternate soundtracks or subtitles are included on this disc. Black Mask is rather thin when it comes to supplements -- the only extra features included on this disc are some TV spots and theatrical trailers, the ability to jump to specific fight scenes, some info on the Wushu school of martial arts, some production notes, and some info on the cast and crew.

In this stunning story, Jet Li portrays a quiet bookkeeper, who is actuality is a secret military project that was supposed to be destroyed long ago. Others like him are out to find and kill him, because Jet Li's character is against their ideas of world domination. This movie has a dark edge on your regular kung fu movie. You see the average ¿unbelievable jumps¿ and intricate fighting styles of Chinese martial artists. I enjoyed this movie because it was full of action and great Jing-Wu, Jet Li¿s preferred fighting style. Each action-packed scene in the movie leaves you on the edge of your seat, wanting more fighting, and more about the mystery man known as Tsui Chik, whom Jet Li acts as. I regret to say that this movie is dubbed, and not truly an American product. Nevertheless, it should be watched, because maybe the best kung fu movies should come from China. Do you want robotic soldiers, unique fighting styles, incredible fight scenes, and an engaging storyline? Then you should go with Jet Li¿s Black Mask!
