Plot

A Chinese crime boss in Los Angeles losses his son in a gun fight with the cops during a drug deal. He seeks revenge and tasks hit man John Lee (Yung-Fat Chow) to kill the son of the officer that killed his. John is unable to finish the job and goes from being the hunter to being the hunted. He teams up with an unwilling yet beautiful counterfeiter to either kill or be killed.

Pros

This movie doesn't waste anytime getting started and doesn't try to be anything more than it is, an action flick with lots of gun play. The plot is simple and the runtime is just right. Yung-Fat Chow fans will be happy, he's in almost every scene. The supporting cast and dialogue is strong and guys, if you like the ladies, Mira Sorvino is not only talented but is definitely easy on the eyes.

Cons

Deep and thought-provoking are not two words that could be used to describe this film and the extras are very thin.

Extras

  • "Where the Action Is" Making Of Featurette
  • "Chow Yun-Fat Goes Hollywood" Featurette

Recommendation

If you're looking for a fun little action flick to kill an evening with, you will want to check this out. The storyline is a little thin, but the pace is nice and the gun play is loud and often. And last but not least, you will not have to pay a lot for it; it seems to be on everyone's discount Blu-Ray shelves.
