The US version, that is released by Columbia/TriStar (under the name "Contract Killer"), is cut by about 6 mins. The original version of the film, which it's original English title was "Hitman," runs at about 104 mins. The US version runs at 98 mins. Also, the original music has been removed and replaced with a soundtrack containing mostly rap and the English dub that is on Columbia/TriStar's version dumbs down the original version's dialog considerably.

Out of all of Jet Li's films... this one shows off his acting talent than his martial arts. This film focuses way to much on the bland plot which is why your left only to deal with his acting which isn't that bad for someone that went from wushu champion to the acting gig.
Out of all the movies in my Jet Li collection... I don't suggest this one to anyone thats looking for a hardcore fighting film. Granted the last fight scene is very intense but it's only the last 10-15 mins of the film and it's full of patented Jet Li trademarked moves like his belt as a weapon and his hilarious 'bitch slaps' to the face. Most of the film is plot and slapstick humor.
