Its Ok.
27 February 2003 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is differant for Dolph Lundgren, usually he only does B-Grade movies, but this one is a little differant. Its an enjoyable John Woo film with great action and great acting, But what the hell is up with him not being able to look at the colour White, that was a bite stupid. anyway I really enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone.

7/10
