Jet Li's character only fights with one hand for a majority of the film. See more »
The M1A1 offered for sale is reported to have reactive armour and a 90mm cannon. The M1A1 clearly hasn't got the reactive armour skirts on it (Reactive armour are a series of raised explosive plates added to the outside of the tank) and they have always come with a 105mm cannon on the M1, later models having a 120mm cannon, A 90mm cannon would have been impossible to come by having been phased out by the appearance of the M1A1.

It's an average action movie with lots of action and violent fights
This is a buddy movie action film . The stars are Jet Li and DMX which unite forces to vanquish an evil and ominous person : Mark Dacascos who wants some precious stones with the aim to make as weapons . The villain abducts his daughter and the starring has to rescue her.
In the movie there is action , tongue-in-cheek , struggles of Kung Fu style , pursuits , comedy and packs a lot of bemusement . Jet Li likeness his contender Mark Dacascos fight of incredible manners . Jet Li's role only fights with one hand for the majority of the movie . The final showdown is overwhelming and breathtaking . Performance is middling but it's an action film where important are the quarrels and the pursuits . Support cast is pretty good such as Kelly Hu , Gabrielle Unión , Paige Hurd , and Paolo Seganti . Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson interpret a humorous and first-rate couple . Not only is this the 2nd film to star DMX, Jet Li, and Anthony Anderson together , it is the first film where all three of them share screen time with each other . All three of them starred in Romeo Must Die . At one point, Aaliyah was set to star in the film until her untimely death in 2001. And even Arnold Schwarzenegger was slated to star . It contains a colorful and evocative cinematography by Daryn Okada. As well as a thrilling and stirring musical score by John Frizzell. The motion picture was regular but professionally directed by Andrzej Bartowiak . Rating : 6 , mediocre but entertaining . Acceptable and passable
