Spears, a private detective working in L.A. receives word from an old friend that the friend's sister (and Spears' ex-girlfriend), Kim, has been kidnapped by a criminal gang. At first, Spears doesn't want to get involved, especially when he finds out that his friend's family is mixed up with the Chinese Mafia, but the feelings he still has for Kim lead him to return to New York and try to rescue her. When he arrives, he learns that Kim is caught in the middle of a war with the Russian Mafia, and that her life now depends on him. Written by

Casper Van Dein is a cop who quit for personal reasons and Russell Wong is a Cop looking for his kidnapped sister...that is the background Story that the movie is built on.
I Normally like Russell Wong, this is one of his weakest outings,his marshal skills are not used at all, and he gets the brunt of the many stupid lines,Casper fairs only slightly better.
This movie opens strong with a very violent and action packed gun battle,slips to mediocrity for an hour or so,with a few funny lines and a bit of charm sprinkled in between poor diologue and too many close ups of Casper Van D. Then it takes a sudden turn in the last 10 min and manages to come up with a interesting closing act.
All in all I can't recommend the movie but I would not try to stop someone from watching it...I have seen it twice since it came out.
