Did You Know?

The scene near the beginning of the movie where Chance blasts the doors open had to be shot twice. During the first take, an inefficient amount of explosives were used that didn't entirely blow the doors away, so primer cord was used for the final shot seen in the film.See more »
Plot holes: During the final showdown, Z tells Chance that he will kill them all if he fires his gun, since there are many combustible and flammable gases around them, seemingly with their valves open and expelling all of their contents into the air. Somehow, though, Angel manages to pick up Chance's gun and shoot Z several times without blowing anyone up at all.See more »

I really like Rick Yune and it really isn't easy rating the movie that low. But I just can't rate the movie higher. As another reviewer wrote, you could give Rick Yune an "A" for his efforts. But it might have been better, if someone else would have written the story, someone (many?) would have helped him with the producing part and maybe if the movie had stronger leads.

The acting is way below average, but then again, the script doesn't seem to have anything that anyone could hold onto. The female lead might be beautiful, but is totally misplaced. While I'm writing about all this, some of you might wonder, why I haven't lost a word about the action sequences. After all this is an action movie and the really important part is the choreography of these scenes. I'd say that they save the movie from a "1" rating, but as the time and the stunts have progressed the last year, coming up with stunts like these, won't really cut it. There's Ong Bak, Tom Yum Goong and also Donnie Yen's and Jet Li's latest efforts. Even for a fan of the genre, this won't appeal to you. I hope for Rick Yune, that he finds better projects in the future.
