Good if you take it for only an action movie
17 November 2002 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

If you're looking for great acting or some kind of amazing plot, forget it. But if you're looking for explosions, gunplay, and martial arts (and bad guys getting their asses kicked), then this is the movie for you. Oscar material it is not, but good action movie it is.
