lots of action, perhaps Michael Bay style, forget the logic of the plot
1 April 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

this film is a great action flick with little to no deeper meaning. if your looking for guns, explosions, fights, typical US action movie, all wrapped in an Asian cast, then your going to hit the jackpot.

if your seeking deeper meanings, surprising plot twists, a logical plot, then don't bet too much on this movie.

A well worth attempt to re-create Die Hard style movie in an Asian setting, but the whole movie just don't have a serious feel, it just feels like each segment of the film tries to replicate certain parts of the US action film genre, some parts looks more like 'Die Hard', others looks bit like 'Enemy of the State', and some like 'Mission Impossible', it also probably packed a little Hong Kong action film styles, probably due to the fact that the film was filmed in Hong Kong.

all in all, feels bit like a car assembled from parts made from every car brand, but has nothing of its own character.

good attempt at least, for a action flick from Asia.
