I'm not an expert on film in any genre but I found this to be truly, truly awful filmmaking.
This film feels like a TV movie production with a budget to match.
The acting was on par with a Hollywood soft porn movie production.
The accompanying rock music sound track (that goes on and on and on and on) got on my nerves a lot. There was one point where Li was in a car flicking through the radio stations and finally he settles for a hard rock music station but he's shaking his head and moving his body as though he's listening to a piano recital by Liberace ... absolutely hilarious!
The fight scenes were nothing compared to his other movies like 'Fearless' or 'Hero'. It felt as though this was his first ever movie outing.
The special effects were, in my opinion, a little strange. For example, Li kicks or throws someone into the air who then go into slow motion or complete stop in mid air while Li continues at normal speed to beat up other guys around him. The person suspended in the air is now slowly descending and Li gives him a good kicking on the way down. There was also the overdone slow motion bullet dodging. Li kicks down a lampost to show his strength then kicks some prison door bars that bend that really proves how 'manly' he is.
After 61 minutes of lost hope that this film would improve, I pressed the eject button. Another £10 down the drain!
Perhaps Jet Li has a sense of humour and made this as a spoof movie.
