How would you react if three years after the death of your father, you receive a letter signed by him inviting you to visit an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere in China? Curious in nature, you decide to set off on this adventure. Here's the snag, when you arrive in front of the house (which looks more like a bunker), you realize that there are other visitors summoned as well. Four guys show up with the same letter you have! All five characters, Monk, Casino, Black Jack, Shang and Poker have something in common. All carry guns, have dangerous reputations and are wanted by the police. Unexpectedly the door to the house is opened by a mysterious woman and shortly after entering they notice that they are all locked inside. The house is surrounded by police and they can not escape the psychotic killer that wants to wipe them out. After shocking plot twists and with a growing suspicion of each other, they come to realize that they have only one hour to live.Written by

Having watched some of David Carradines's previous movies and not to mention the 1970's TV series, "Kung Fu," which, was suppose to have starred the late Bruce Lee, I must say that I was very surprised to his just not his name but also that of DMX. What on earth were these two thinking when signing on the dotted lines for this movie? Four men and a woman get a letter, signed by their father, three years after he has died and they meet at a bunker in China. It starts with action as all five of them are surrounded and then we get swept into the past. But the whole thing drags on and on.
This stars DMX, Michael Madsen, Pascal Caubet, Bettina Antoni, David Carradine and Monica Cruz.
Yes! The action is good but story line drags on and on and by the time the whole link is revealed, be aware, you may have just fallen asleep.
Conclusion: Extremely poor.
