Product Description

Martial arts thriller starring Jet Li and Jason Statham. After his partner is brutally murdered by the infamous assassin Rogue (Li), FBI agent Jack Crawford (Statham) vows to find the elusive killer and personally avenge his partner's death. But Rogue proves untraceable until three years later when he resurfaces to ignite a bloody turf war between Chinese mob leader Chang (John Lone) and Japanese Yakuza boss Shiro (Ryo Ishibashi). Eager to capture Rogue once and for all, Crawford leads his team of crime specialists headlong into the conflict. But Crawford's thirst for vengeance jeopardises his professional judgement, and as the violence escalates, he finally comes face to face with his enemy only to discover that nothing about Rogue or his plan is quite what it seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very Good 5 April 2008
By Caleb Williams VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
The Story: FBI Agent Jack Crawford's (Jason Statham) partner and his family are murdered in an assassination style killing. Jack finds a titanium shell at the scene of the killing. After 3 years since Crawford's partner was killed, Jack is called in to investigate the murder of a Triad gang, only to discover the same trademark titanium bullet shell again which tells him the assassin is still around. We learn that this assassin is only known as "Rogue" (Jet Li) and although Jack Crawford is seeking his own vendetta against the assassin, "Rogue" has his own mission of turning the Triads and the Yakuza against each other in a bloody "War"

Pro: This movie has some exquisite action sequences that have you, truly on the edge of your seat. The Shootout in the Chinese Tea House and the Car Chase between Statham and Li are two of the more memorable scenes in this entire film.

Con/Pro: This film has a very cliché story base as it's the typical "Cops partner's killed, Cop seeks revenge, Cop catches bad guy" movie. It is actually reminiscent of the old corny, but cool 80s action movies like Die Hard which some would agree is what gives this film its charm.

Pro: It has two very famous and memorable actors as the main characters. Statham gives us his trademark tough guy (Bad American Accent) take no nonsense attitude, and Li simply gives us his legendary Martial Art and acting genius that we've come to love over the years.

Pro: The end has a marvelous twist that I promise every unique viewer with no real idea of what this movie is about will expect the twist that does come at the end.

Very good movie overall and I would definitely recommend it for those who are and aren't familiar with past roles of Statham and Li.

4.0 out of 5 stars War, good for quite a lot in this case 13 May 2008
By Mr P
Format:Blu-ray
I enjoyed this film. Good fun, a reasonably coherent plot, plenty of action and some nice touches of humour.

I was fearing this would be some sort of straight-to-DVD B-movie with a cheesy plot acting as an excuse for nonsensical action scene after nonsensical action scene, with the only reason it did not go straight to DVD being the names of the actors in it.

Fortunately I was wrong to be afraid. Certainly the film does have its moments of stupidity (for example, the hero gets involved in a gun fight, and proceeds to kill about 10 bad guys single handedly, when 2 minutes previously the entire building was swarming with cops, including his support team, who have all disappeared or gone for a doughnut or something, good gunfight though).

However, for the most part, there is a plot, with a few twists (that I was quite pleased to have guessed early on). It is a good plot, cliched maybe but then again what modern action movie does not contain at least some cliches? The acting is generally of a good standard, especially Jason Statham and Jet Li, who manage to remain credible throughout.

Some great fighting scenes and plenty of action, they even managed to include a car chase with Statham's car looking remarkably like that of Steve McQueen's in Bullitt!

Blu Ray: Excellent Blu Ray picture quality. They clearly shot the film with the HD market in mind. Sound is 5.1 or 7.1 PCM, which is a pity as I can't run 7.1 PCM and I assume neither can many people. Why can't they put a third audio option of DTS on, surely the blu ray format has enough space on it?

Summary: A good fun 80's style action movie with great up to date visuals, recommended to rent and definitely to buy if you like action/fighting movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average 30 Jan 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A slightly under whelming action thriller that stars Jet Li as a Rogue assassin up against Jason Statham's obsessive FBI agent.

Both turn in the type of performances that you would expect, but with a quite a bland generic script and the occasional lull in pace, the film really doesn't have anything new to offer the genre.

In terms of the action there enough fights, explosions and car stunts to satisfy, but you get the impression that budget restrictions meant that they couldn't do larger scale stuff.

One interesting development late on that redeems some of the negative points is a nice plot twist that may not be obvious to all, and that really justifies the motivation of Jet's character.

In closing, not bad, but not up there with some of Statham's and Li's other movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars War: Huh, what is it good for?.... 13 Sep 2013
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In answer to Edwin Starr's famous question, in this context War is good for a decent evening's mindless entertainment for fans of the explosive shoot-stab-punch-kick-blow-em-up. Jet Li stars as the mysterious `Rogue', top rate hired gun for the Japanese criminal underground in San Francisco. He is stirring up mob warfare between the Triads and Yakuza, and Jason Statham is the tough cop determined to take him down.

The plot is hard to follow, but to be honest with all the excellently staged action sequences you really do not need to worry about the plot. There are fights, gun battles, explosions, car chases and gratuitous nudity occurring with a regularity that keeps your mind completely off whatever the plot was in the first place.

It's a perfect brain at the door evening wit a pizza and beer film. Never going to win an Oscar, but very very entertaining. 4 stars.
