Everything ... is dominated by actress Bai Ling, who creates a full-blooded character and role model for young girls.

Quite predictable if you pay attention to the small details. There didn't seem to be much of a fight, there wasn't much tension at all considering he could have been killed for something he believed he didn't commit. It seemed all too easy to get him off the hook. Made me more likely to watch Chinese films though. They have a certain air about them.
