In the scene where Fait is riding through the alley on the quad and the guy riding the dirt bike (seen from the air) jumps over the truck, you can clearly see the ramp, and many more boxes. Right before this is shown you see a pile of 4 boxes high in a stair fashion going away from the truck, but right next to it, and in the jump scene they are also further away from the truck.

I didn't expect a spectacular film, just something that would keep me entertained for the majority of it. I got just that. Jet Li's fight scenes were worth my while and quite well done. The addition of Mark D. was a nice addition, he is a great opponnet for Li. I just wish they had more screen time together. The biggest weak spot to this film was DMX. He is not even close to a good actor, and he can't do entertaining fight scenes, and is very weak when emotional scenes are being done (ie. with his daughter here). This film could have been much better if there had been some other angle than a kidnapped daughter. Overall I think this movie while not excellant, was pretty good. Fans of Jet Li might like it, if you can stand most of his other U.S. films, than this will be more of the same.
