International Security Affairs agent Jon is on a dangerous mission to escort a criminal scientist to another country. En route, a member of his team, Sean, turns out to be a traitor and shoots Jon in the head while kidnapping the scientist. When Jon wakes up in the hospital, a doctor tells him that within weeks, the bullet in his brain will cause complete paralysis. Jon returns to Beijing to see his mother, who confesses that Jon has a brother in Malaysia who was raised by his father, a gambler. Jon takes a flight to Malaysia to find his brother, Yeung. On the plane he forms a bond with Dr. Kan, who promises to look into possible treatments for his condition. However, when they arrive, Yeung tries to kidnap the doctor and when Jon intervenes, he's also taken hostage. The two soon realize they're brothers, and decide to work together in order to keep the criminals behind the kidnappings from reinfecting the world of a disease long thought cured. Written by
Who said an action movie needs a story at all. Just throw in some martial experts, some guns, one or two big villains, a few good cops a few corrupt ones, and don't forget some innocent bystanders - every thing will work out on its own. It almost does, the action moves so fast you don't have the time to stop and realize nothing made sense here. While watching I simply had a vague awkward feeling but once the movie ended and I tried to figure out what I was seeing it really downed on me. It was simply a flimsy excuse for a script. Our hero might be looking for the tiniest needle in a huge haystack, never fear, fate will throw it right in front of his feet before he even starts searching. Coincidents are not things that happen every now and again, it's the way Dante Lam's universe operate, it's the solution for every problem that might hold the pace of his movie an extra second. So the action scenes do work, the melodrama is exactly as one would expect, but if you really want to enjoy this one don't stop to think about it.
