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 #1 trailer, after Jackie Chan says: "20,000 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 actual movie. Instead Commander Bromley responds 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.

During the telephone call following the first bombing, the IRA terrorist makes reference to the British occupation of 'Northern Ireland'. However very few Irish republicans, and certainly not one in the IRA, would refer to it as such. Instead they would call it 'The North Of Ireland'. See more »
As a Jackie Chan movie it's great, as a thriller with action it's even better.
I knew ahead of time going in this movie was more about the story that it was Jackie beating the crap out of goons (which I personally love to see). Both Jackie and Pierce did very well in the respective roles, Pierce's malice really shined through in the story while Jackie's dramatic acting was very believable and really helped immersion. I was impressed by the actions scenes as they were fitting and not ill placed. Everyone added to the storyline and wasn't throw in there to just to give us action. Even though this doesn't fit the standard role we usually see Mr. Chan in, he really brings depth to a story that could have been shallow. If you're debating it, don't just watch it.
