[A] routine crime thriller.

All together now: 'War! Hurgh! What is it it good for?'
September 28, 2007
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

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.
August 27, 2007
Lacking even the galvanizing action sequences that would have compensated for suffering through its formulaic plot, this is a thoroughly forgettable exploitationer.
August 27, 2007
Pure straight-to-video rope-a-dope.
August 27, 2007
There isn't enough humor in the script and not enough style in the direction by newcomer Philip G. Atwell. A few plot twists keep things interesting, but the best ones come long after anyone could possibly care.

Building to a climactic twist as arbitrary as it is unsatisfying, WarK ties itself in knots trying to bring something new to a stale formula. It's never painful to watch, but that's only because it provokes no feeling at all.
August 27, 2007
Most regrettably, War squanders the considerable merits of its leads.

No one who's witnessed any of the graceful yet blistering combat in the Bourne movies should stand for action sequences that look like they've been edited by an Uzi.

This isn't great cinema, but it adequately fills a niche. Those who like their action loud and bloody won't be disappointed. There's a high body count and lots of explosions and, for some, that's what this is all about.

The teaming of action stars Jet Li and Jason Statham may raise audience expectations for a lean, mean ass-kicking machine, but War turns out to be a flabby and formulaic programmer.
August 24, 2007
All-the-way-through good, from explosive start to bloody finish, without so much as a momentary lag in the action or the story.
August 24, 2007
An irrelevant, joyless bore.
