This movie has two of my favorite action actors. Jason Statham, and Jet Li. The movie itself starts out action packed and doesn’t pause for an instance. In fact, there is a whole lot of gun fighting and hand-to-hand because the storyline revolves around FBI agents investigating an assassin named Rogue whom works for the yakuza, but then starts perpetuating a war between the Triads and the yakuza.
I have to say that it’s interesting that with these movies, they’re starting to portray asians with actual asians. They even speak the languages, although there was still a mix of Cantonese with Mandarin. I’m guessing that they were hoping that people didn’t catch the whole dialect thing.
Movies like this have come a long ways. Even better yet, I’ll be getting a copy of War (Widescreen Edition) [affiliate] to complete my Jet Li movie collection (for now).
