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.
