Goofs

Johnny Kung is talking to his father on the phone, and Kung Wei tells him to call him on his pager if he needs anything. As Kung Wei reads his pager number on the phone, and the subtitles show the numbers - 1177131910, Johnny writes them on the brick wall. But he misses the last "1" between the 9 and 0. He memorizes the number and then wipes it off the wall - but he would have the wrong number memorized. See more »

Great chemistry between father and son! 6/10
19 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I quite enjoyed this movie. I really liked the little boy, who played Jet Li's son and there chemistry and fighting skills was a joy to watch. The storyline was well put together and Jet Li proved that he can act as well as kick butt. Basically, Jet Li plays an undercover cop, trying to take down a crime boss but while he's on the job his wife dies and his son goes to live with a cop whose trying to work out Jet Li's true identity. The fighting scenes were quite good, especially when his son is using his martial arts skills to help take down the baddies and the showdown at the end was worth waiting for. In all, it's an entertaining film with enough material to keep you interested throughout. Enjoyable!

Round-Up: This film also has intense drama and you feel for Jet Li who can't reveal his undercover status to his family. After earning the trust from the baddies, he's unable to go back home because it might break his cover so his only communication with his loved ones is through a pager and phone calls to his son. I was really impressed with his sons acting skills and he really did show true emotion for such a young boy. The director didn't go overboard with the string action so the fight scenes looked realistic and well choreographed. Anyway, if your into your martial arts movies, this is definitely worth a watch.

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: HK$15.5million

I recommend this movie to people who are into their Jet Li movies about a undercover cop fighting against a crime boss, with the help of his young son. 6/10
