A humble businessman with a buried past seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. A cat-and-mouse conflict ensues with a government official, whose past may hold clues to the killers' identities.
The story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love - his teenage daughter - is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat- and-mouse conflict with a Irish government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.Written by
The line from the first trailer, after Jackie Chan says: "Twenty thousand pounds, ("that's all I have" is also omitted from the trailer) for the name of the bombers." The line "That's not how we do things here", spoken by Commander Richard Bromley (Ray Fearon) is not in the final cut. Instead, Commander Bromley responded with, "To be clear, these are vicious men who take pride in their atrocities. This is our work, not yours. You need to be patient." and Quan puts the money away.

Exciting political thriller
After Jackie Chan's daughter is killed by the so called 'authentic IRA' he sets out to track down her killer, by coercing ex IRA member and now deputy minister Pierce Brosnan to find out who did it.
2 stories essentially run in parallel here, Chan's revenge which gives us most of the standard, albeit well paced action and Brosnan working to find the killers whilst his past catches up with him
Not surprisingly given Martin Campbell is at the helm this hangs together well particularly the political elements and a fine star performance from Brosnan - seeing an older more subdued turn from Chan is also interesting
