Who cares about the predictable plot and the silly sight gags. Just the mention of twins should have alerted the viewers that the non-twin Twins would be involved with their usual action hi-jinx. That there are actual twins involved adds to the inside joke. The action is well paced and well choreographed - and everyone seems to have decent martial arts skills.
The photography was above par with excellent production values. The blending of doubles and CGI with fine wire work make this effort one of the best for special effects in this genre. The breaking glass sequences one after another made me think of the crash sequence in Blues Brothers (not that there is any comparison - it's just that there seemed be endless ways to crash cars - er, break glass).
Who needs complicated gangster plots with surprise revelations as to who are the good - who are the bad guys? This is a nice, simple story with lots of fun action - and the promise of a sequel.
