I have the US Lionsgate release , so I am unsure in any case if the US DVD is cut at all. The best thing about this movie is the cast. Which contains HK legends Sammo Hung, Simon Yam and supercop Danny Lee. Everything other than that is average at best. The story is nothing special and neither is the action . While there is plenty of violence and carnage, it is mostly CG. Plus said CGI is some of the worst I've seen since PS1 came out. Usually HK movies are classy and subtle with the use of CG. Not here, this is 'nt by any means a terrible film. Just an average action flick with horrible f/x and an exceptional cast. If you are new to Hong Kong cinema , I would say to watch another one of these actor's other movies instead . Otherwise keep your expectations low with this one . I give 4/10 for the movie and 6/10 when consideration for the awesome cast.
