This is not an art-house movie nor the most amazing action movie you will ever see. But it is a good, solid, entertaining action movie.
The relationship between Jacky Wu and Celina Jade was nice, the café scene was both funny and with great action, the scenes at the police station were a mixture of tension and comedy, and the climax fight scene was ridiculous but who cares?
I'd never seen Jacky Wu before and I found his silent stoic character rather enjoyable. This appears to be Celina Jade's first film and she was excellent, as well as rather attractive. Secondary characters played there roles acceptably (although the blonde policeman seemed to be in the wrong film).
The point is that I was thoroughly entertained for the duration, and even my wife enjoyed it. Overall I think that's pretty good.
