Did You Know?

Trivia

Donnie Yen originally planned to have a much larger fight scene at the driving range, which would involve a longer brawl between the two gangs followed by his character showing up to stop it. The scene was cut down due to lack of funds and the inability to get permission to shoot additional scenes at the location. See more »

Goofs

When the man is shot on the roof of the parking structure, even though the movie depicts events in 1997, there is a modern silver BMW 5-series parked next to the victim's car. It is a 2004-2007 (pre January 2007 facelift) model. See more »

Alternate Versions

The China version features an additional scene - where Tony's diseased mother shows up looking for her sons - during the final fight with Inspector Ma and Tony. See more »

If you're an avid Donnie Yen fan, than no one has to sell this movie to you. If you like Asian action movies in general, than you'll be watching this too. What about the others, who are not that familiar with those types of movies? There's not that much back-story to hinder the action too much, neither are there real character developments, this shouldn't be a problem with you (if it is, don't watch the movie)

What should be considered, is the action, that is spot on here. Mixing many styles, Donnie Yen has created some extraordinary fight scenes for this movie. And although I'm for a little bit more character and story driven movies, I liked this one, because it was straight forward. And the action holds up to the promise it gives you ... That's all I can say, now it's up to you, to decide whether you want to watch it or not
