Critic Consensus: Jet Li and Jason Statham find themselves on opposing sides in the immensely boring War, which is full of clichés but short on action.

Critic Reviews for War (Rogue Assassin)
Just as you think to yourself, ''This flick would be way better if it had Van Damme playing twins,'' along comes a plot twist so ingenious that it almost redeems the rest of the flick.
In spite of a late-game adrenaline surge, the hoped-for fireworks between Li and Statham never quite materialize.
Not so much a narrative as a barrage of violent images designed to beat the brain into abject surrender.
Lacking even the galvanizing action sequences that would have compensated for suffering through its formulaic plot, this is a thoroughly forgettable exploitationer.
Audience Reviews for War (Rogue Assassin)
wonderfully entertaining with some solid action sequences. the story holds together ok until the end, but when it falls apart, it crumbles into too many pieces to be of much value.
This is a very good and slick looking action flick, I thought it was gonna be a silly martial arts fest that goes straight to the video shop, but this is actually really good. It looks great, the action and stunts are gritty, real looking and believeable, unlike alot of Jet Li and Statham films. The plot is abit confusing here and there, lots of twists and revenge battles going on and the ending is alittle flat but the main twist is good. Very high body count and plenty of blood, with some lovely looking car chases for good measure, a surprising thumbs up.
Such a fun and rewarding face off movie between the greatest modern action stars, Jet Li and Jason Statham. It's a lot better than it should be and throws itself into the ranks of Face/Off and Universal Soldier. It's got double crossing, Yakuza assassins, corrupt cops and a lot of one-liners and action. It doesn't have the best ending, which sort've takes away from the rest of the movie. However, it's still really fun and more than you might expect. There's no cheesy elements and it can be taken seriously for the most part. If anything, it's Jet Li and Jason Statham together onscreen.
