At first in director Konee Rok's vision of "Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang," Raekwon is an animated ninja who interrupts two innocent-enough looking naked folks. Then he's a real man in the studio, getting daggered by drawn weapons. The actual brocade on the wall bleeds into cartoon brocade, the plot dominoes from the lab to bloodsport and back recklessly. When the fire from the battles bleeds over Raekwon's real head, his fur hat looks unpleasantly extraneous.
