Great action movie with quality fighting scenes and special effects. The main intrigue, which attracted the viewer to the film — it is a confrontation between two ekshn-stars Mark Dacascos and Jet Li.

International criminal kidnaps the daughter of the leader of the largest gang of thieves and requires in return to arrange for him, the abduction of diamonds.

And because thieves hate can when them dictate the terms, they are ready to go on cooperation, even with whom, though even with the police of Taiwan, but just to take revenge on the kidnapper...

The plot in the film is interesting and fresh, removed all high level casting — simply brilliant — here are the main ingredients for a good Thriller, but and certainly the main asset of the movie was mark Dacascos, who played one of his best roles and made the worthy competition to the hero Jet Li, I also want to mention acceptable acting DMX'a, which successfully portrayed the role of emotional and a loving father, but and the presence in the film is such a charismatic actor, Tom Arnold added to the film Comedy component.

In General the film is worthy of attention, and for lovers of quality fighters, I am sure this will become one of favorite!

On the occasion of the recent days the birth of Jet Li, I came with the idea in honor of this event to see a movie with him in the lead role. The one I watched once upon a time, or do not watched. The choice fell on this movie. I it was going to review sooner or later. The more, there was good reason for this.

I watched its a long time already in quite conscious age and then he I liked remember the good. Now little changed. Like it I don't have ceased at all. It was noticed a number of scenic gaps, where rough, somewhere not really, I had suffered the common sense and logic. But they are not so much on the perception of the picture in General and on the overall experience they are not much affected. Although, of course, as anyone. But he has other important qualities as for example, dynamism, cheerfulness and lightness of the narrative, no sagging, the balance between action and static scenes, everything is designed in the same rhythm, so the ribbon looks great on same music gives.

Action in the picture is good, presented in basically, the melee scenes more could not use combat skills Dacascos and Whether the action would be a crime. They then show itself in all its glory in the final battle. Have Mark's only fight for the entire film and do his screen time a bit. But in the fight with the Chinese he showed the class. And operator the editor is also not disappoint. Jet fights more and it looks cool and solid, even as a contrasting and mysterious. Not it costs without the use of ropes and here, but they are much smaller than, say, in the same "Romeo must die" and they so rush in eyes, breaking the laws of physics. The other characters do to show that they fight know, but to Do and Dacascos them how to the moon, but it's forgivable.

Acting is acceptable to fighter level. Everyone plays adequately his character, even if it seems that he did not plays, goes to a straight face. And despite that the characters written rather superficially, it is not stopping to enjoy the view.

In General, good-quality and dynamic fighter or not a drop a legacy that could be reviewed and have fun. And removed today's standards for penny (and the this was little money), and this fact speaks about that no need to fork out hundreds of millions in order to get a good movie.

Looked again this wonderful Thriller TV. And in principle, nothing to add, except that is one of the most favorite of my movies and actors, brilliant sygravshih their roles. My favorite actor jet Li as always, unflappable and invincible, in mostly films with his participation is guaranteed action and good mood. Mark Dacascos is so one of favorite actor bad played the villain, although not been accustomed to see him in this role. Rapper DMX well have played a role(though I'm not are a fan of turnips, but in the movie, he good) fundamental thief and a loving father. Gabriela in the role of the former striptizershu and friend DMXа sexy and irresistible. Kelly Hu in the role of a bitch(despite the fact a pretty good-looking) also looks great. In short, lovers of quality and spectacular action Thriller, if someone didn't look I recommend to look, I think not disappoint!
