A former ex-illegal boxer becomes a paid assassin when he is swindled out of his money. After killing a man in Hong Kong he is on the lam. He is pursued, along with his girlfriend into the western desert area of China by other assassins (paid for by the man who paid for the Hong Kong hit) the local police and the Provincial or State police.
The music switches from steel western guitar to flute. The bad guys lament over things like guilt and fate. There is also a big abortion issue as a woman divorces her husband because every year she gets pregnant and he demands she have an abortion. We discover why the Chinese never developed guns, because they can dodge bullets and jump off a 20 foot building and land on their feet. Their vehicles are geared so they can travel as fast in reverse as they do going forward and they have amazing cell phone reception. And the women don't inhale their cigarettes. Yes, there is something to be said for state capitalism if... they didn't blur out the only sex scene in the film.
The movie is hard to follow until an explanation is dropped on you and even then I found myself confusing characters.
F-bomb (no really I read it on the screen) no sex or nudity unless you count a quick distant blur.
