Hong Kong action flicks rule...
4 January 2001 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I bought Jet Li's 'Hitman' on video and it had a trailer for this movie. It looked great in the trailer, so I bought this on video too... And I wasn't disappointed.

The acting is superb from the main cast, the plot is decent and the action sequences are well staged and look great. The kung fu scenes are amazing - especially the end showdown. The gun fights are cool too, and the bit with the rockets being fired at the van is brilliant.

A prime example of the quality of Hong Kong produced action films - 9/10.
