so DMX is a better martial artist then Jet Li?
6 September 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Who'd have thought DMX was as skillful in combat as Jet Li? This film would certainly make you believe

that. I only managed to watch halfway through but with MTV style filming and laughable effects

(DMX running up a wall) it makes you wonder why they used Li when anyone could have done the same job.

Why do new action films continue using rappers too? They cant act, DMX may have been passable in Exit Wounds but in this he is the main star, any unknown ACTOR would have been 10x better.

The dialogue is laughable,

DMX - "Its about time you PMD'd" Jet - "what?" DMX - "Put Me Down"

he wanted informing, I would have thought he wanted shooting!

another dissapointment from Jet Li, once they stop dishing out these poor Rap action movies we may see

him do something to show his talent.
