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.
