Excellent Movie
15 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee make a unique team. The movie has plenty of action to satisfy action fans. The action and fight scenes are choreographed well. Brandon Lee is pretty funny, making lots of wise-cracks through out the film and Dolph gives a pretty good performance as a man looking for revenge. Great movie to check out especially if your a fan or brandons or dolphs and love action and martial arts!
