Trivia

When Bone (Michael Jai White) reveals his intentions to Angela, she asks if he's her "White Knight." Bone jokingly exclaims, "I don't know about... 'White' Knight." This of course, references the fact that Bone is Black; making him her "Dark Knight." One year prior to making this film, Michael Jai White portrayed the Mob boss Gambol in the film "Dark Knight."

Great action packed movie
30 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was easily one of my favorite martial-arts movies in the last 5 years or so. Michael Jai White plays the part perfectly, and his tough yet concerned persona is great. I honestly couldn't think of a better person to fill this role, and his beautiful martial arts style makes it all the better.

It does suffer from some lackluster acting jobs outside of White. I thought Dante Basco (Pinball) over acted quite a bit, and i don't think he was the best actor for the role.

Other than that the movie was terrific, and i would recommend it to any martial arts fan.
