The only thing that kept me interested in this film was the chemistry between Jet Li and his newly found agent. Apart from that, there isn't that much action but the storyline is half decent. The witty script was funny in parts but Jet Li didn't really show that much emotion throughout the whole movie. He seemed to look a bit lost most of the time, which is why his sidekick played a big part in keeping this movie interesting. After a big crime lord is mysteriously killed, a big wager is put on the table to find the killer. Once the murderer is revealed, he joins forces with Li to take down the crime lords, who didn't have any intention in paying out the big reward for finding the killer of his grandfather. I was hoping for big action scenes with different hitmen, but I was quite disappointed with the direction that the director took the storyline. With all that aside, it's worth a watch just to see a different side to Li and some of the scenes are really funny. Average!
With only one movie left in my Jet Li season, I can't wait to start collecting the old Kung Fu movies because I have enjoyed some of the action, which doesn't have the crazy flying in the air scenes. As for Jet Li, I'm definitely impressed with his martial arts skills but I'm not that impressed with the movies that he has made lately. I've watched a few interviews with Jet Li which shows that he is quite a funny man who doesn't take life that seriously, which you can see in some of his films, but he really need to start making some better movies. Anyway, I found this movie funny but not that great in the action department.
I recommend this movie to people who are into their Jet Li movies about a down and out man who joins up with an agent to track down a murderer for a large amount of money. 4/10
