Trivia

Jet Li stated in multiple interviews that he was not happy with this film nor its production. He went as far to say that this movie "sucked" and he had no confidence in director Philip G. Atwell. Even halfway into filming, he knew that it would receive mediocre ratings and not make profit. See more »

Goofs

When Rogue is in his gun vault, he is loading a pistol magazine with his "depleted Uranium" rounds. The rounds are clearly 5.7x28mm, and the magazine is for a FN Five-seveN handgun. However, the gun he supposedly inserts it into is a Walther P99 in 9mm. This would be impossible because the Five-seveN-magazine is too big for the Walther. See more »

Take it for what it is and you will be fine.
9 June 2008 | by shadowman123See all my reviews

War is one of those martial art films you see on TV one weeknight and decided to watch not for because it is a piece of film history but just purely for the sake of entertainment. I read in previous reviews that people were quick to attack this movie due to the fact that Jet Li was in it and although Jet Li can act very well , War is a movie that one should watch purely for the action and not for any other reason at all. The action is War is sharp and fun , there is kung fu , sword fights and nudity and wise cracks to keep everyone satisfied. The film moves along at a nice pace although it might drag on which causes it to be longer than it really should be . However War's biggest fault is that is it's very weak , cheesy and shaky script which reinforces the point that it should be watched not for the drama or stand out performances , but just for the action. Trust me just leave your brain at the door and you will be fine.

WAR - 7.8 OUT OF 10

ONE WANTS JUSTICE , THE OTHER WANTS REVENGE...
