After "The Rebel" one would expect a movie starring Johnny Nguyen would at least offer the same experience action wise. Sadly somehow they found it necessary to put in focus on drama. While sometimes it does help intensify the action, in this case it doesn't help at all. It even distracts from it. Some directors have no clue what is important. Being pretentious with a story this bad is never a good idea. All this would not matter if the action sequences were up to par of those in "The Rebel". Sure there were some nice moves by the main characters but rarely were they exciting enough to be interesting. There is a joke in the movie about this being like a Hong Kong movie. While I admire their spirit and ambition in no way comes it even close to that. They wish!
