When Rogue meets with the Ti brothers at the docks, Rogue speaks in Mandarin, while the Ti brothers speak in Cantonese. To those unfamiliar with the dialects, Cantonese and Mandarin may sound similar. However, for those who speak either or both, they will recognize that the sounds of spoken Cantonese and spoken Mandarin are very different. Furthermore, a Mandarin-only speaker will not understand Cantonese and vice-versa. See more »
In the scene where Crawford is in the shooting range, there is a guy in the background who walks by, and then the same guy walks by in the same direction two seconds later. See more »
It's Jet Li vs. Jason Statham in War, an exciting martial arts action film. An FBI agent out for revenge pursues a notorious assassin named Rogue who's come to San Francisco to instigate a war between the Triads and the Yakuza. The storytelling is rather good, especially in creating suspense and intrigue. And, the fight sequences are particularly impressive. However, the characters aren't given much depth and seem more like stereotypes. While War is pretty much a typical revenge film, it's entertaining and has a good cast.
