Plot Summary

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.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In February 2016, two reports were made to the London Metropolitan Police about a "terrorist attack" made on the Lambeth bridge, after many local citizens were not told about a controlled stunt explosion made on a double decker bus for this movie. See more »
Goofs Quan Ngoc Minh is supposed to be 61 but his special forces file shows his date of birth as being 1941. This would have made him 76, not 61. This would also have meant that his wife, of the same age, would have been 61 when she conceived Fan. This is most likely an oversight by the team that composed said file. See more »
