This is better than the first one, though i like the first one too... but this one really kicks ass. The execution of the fight scenes, the action and stunt sequences are choreograph very nice and hard hitting.
The story is not that new to movie-watchers, though there's some twist but still its some kind of a stereotype story...
But if you want hard hitting, bone breaking action entertainment, this one is a must see!
The cast especially actors Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins Kicks Ass! Isaac Florentine and the action cinematographer did a very good job!
