Double bill featuring two martial arts movies. In 'House of Flying Daggers' (2004), Leo (Andy Lau) and Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) have been given the task of ferreting out the leaders of a revolutionary faction known as the Flying Daggers. Jin arrives in disguise at a brothel, where the members are allegedly working and is introduced to a beautiful blind dancer named Mei (Zhang Ziyi). But when Jin drunkenly attempts to have his way with her, Leo is forced to intervene and, after gaining her trust, arrests her and informs her that she'll be tortured if she doesn't tell all she knows about the Flying Daggers. 'Bulletproof Monk' (2003) stars Chow Yun-Fat as a mysterious, nameless monk who, 60 years earlier, was appointed the guardian of an ancient scroll that grants unlimited power to its possessor. After travelling across the world for more than half a century to protect the scroll, the monk is looking for someone new to take on the responsibility, and he is convinced that Kar (Seann William Scott), a self-absorbed street kid from San Francisco, is the man he's looking for. But as the monk begins to train Kar in the roles and responsibilities of being the new scrollkeeper, the pair find out they have a rival, who just happens to be a kung fu master - can they ever defeat him?
