A needlessly elaborate plot somewhat spoils the pairing of these martial-arts icons, but this sturdy B-movie thriller has enough style to overcome its formulaic trappings.

Acaba revelando, em seu ato final, um esforço intrigante para surpreender o espectador, a esta altura, já fomos obrigados a agüentar uma infinidade de diálogos desastrosos e seqüências frouxas de ação e pouco pode ser feito para salvar o filme.

[A] routine crime thriller.

It's inexplicable that the filmmakers haven't given the stars many opportunities to pull out their celebrated skills en route to their inevitable head-on collision.

Considering the extent of action/fight/chase/shootout and stunts, the film seems to drag a bit. But then I like my action films to have good stories and interesting characters.

All together now: 'War! Hurgh! What is it it good for?'

Badly plotted, poorly directed action flick - it's no surprise this wasn't shown to critics before its release.

War is a big dumb potboiler that manages the almost impossible trick of making explosions, swordfights and car chases actually seem boring.
September 28, 2007
Like its leading men, War's got a few handy moves up its sleeve, but when the dust-ups clear it emerges underwritten and over-cranked.

What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

Li and Statham (and the audience) deserve better.

... more proof that bad writing and directing can overwhelm any amount of talent elsewhere.

A cliff notes version of an action movie.

There is a lot of talent in front of the camera in this mess -- Statham, Li, Lone, Aoki, Luis Guzman, Saul Rubinek, and the always cool Sung Kang -- and they are all wasted. Those actors deserve a better movie. So does the audience.

First-time feature director Atwell clearly displays skills he picked up directing videos for Eminem and 50 Cent.

The story is threadbare...

The final cut of the picture looks as though someone pulled it apart in post-production and forgot how the pieces fit. It's not a total mess, but War tends to get dizzy trying to keep the plot afloat.

[Jet] Li and [Jason] Statham's characters represent respect for life and art; they're also purifying a contaminated genre.
August 29, 2007
If you want action and a convoluted plot, there's no need to wreak havoc. Let Jason Statham and Jet Li do that for you in "War."
