The final piece of key casting would be for the role of Mei, a mysterious woman who gives Arthur Bishop both refuge and advice. When Executive Producer Mark Gill sent Michelle Yeoh the script, she immediately signed on to be a part of the production. "The cast alone, Jason (Statham), Jessica (Alba), Tommy Lee (Jones), was enough to get me hooked," said Yeoh, "and the action is non-stop." Of her character, Yeoh describes Mei as "mysterious. She comes into the film in the middle and she is the person to whom Bishop turns, because he's in huge trouble, and needs a haven. She's someone that he trusts implicitly, and over the course of his career, he has gone to her when he needs to move on, and change identities. They have a great respect for each other. Sadly, in this film, I don't get involved in much of the action, which is a big regret. But hopefully, that might change in the future!". See more »

Let me ...

Fun action as usual, the plot is paper thin but works. Writing didn't make sense at times.
