A night out at the cinema to watch an action martial arts movie. The film will not grab you for the original storyline, but the script feats two hong kong chinese clans against cops, the yakuza and the triads. The action is pretty cool too and I would describe it as lively, but not very original either. I did like the film and will rate it high because Jet Li, and his supporting actors who are great. Devon Aika from fast and the furious stars as a what seems irritated lady. The Rza and Dr.Dre musical score adds to any Wu-Tang and Californian film buff fans atmosphere.
