After a botched job, when a Van Gogh painting in his care was stolen, washed-up private security agent Danny Stratton (Orlando Bloom) is reduced to low level body-guarding operations. He gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to restore his reputation when he's given the opportunity to get his high-security team of experts back together, and escort a valuable Chinese antique out of Shanghai. However, in the course of the mission, they are ambushed and the precious antique is stolen. Danny has to work with his team to outsmart the devious mastermind behind the heist.

Bad acting, corny plotline and a dire script add up to a waste of a film and a waste of Orlando Bloom.

Orlando Bloom joins a Chinese cast struggling with their English in this ho-hum by-the-numbers actioner. He gets kudos for doing his own stunts but otherwise it’s one big cliché from start to finish. Judging by the out-takes shown over the end-credits, it was more fun for the cast.
