However, for those who speak either or both, they will recognize that the sounds of spoken Cantonese and spoken Mandarin are very different.

There is no "yakuza district" in San Francisco. There is a "Japantown" or "J-Town," but that's not known to police nor locals as a "japanese organized crime district." See more »
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...
