I got the feeling that someone was trying to
make Donnie the next Jackie Chan as the movie uses a mixture of slapstick
comedy (too much I thought) and some very imaginative fight scenes. The
movie has many out of place modern references - moonwalking, skateboarding,
bicycle tricks etc. in order to generate humor. If they had kept
this movie a little more serious, it could have been truly excellent because
when they let Donnie go its quite something to see.
