Typical gun shooting movie. This can't match up to either of the stars better movies, but it's not a terrible waste of time.

Throwing a pretty face and an action star together does not a movie make. Mira Sorvino can act and Chow Yun-Fat can kick pretty much anyone around, but together they look awkward and the story seems to be an afterthought.

He incurs the wrath of Mr. Wei, the ruthless crime boss boss who sends in someone to take his place - a replacement killer to finish the job.

With the help of a sexy master forger sexy Mira Sorvino, Lee must return to his family in China before they are victimized by his betrayal. I was enraptured by the amazing scenes in the temple, set to a haunting Asian score, superb slow-motion camera work and the excellent use of music and visual imagery. Chow Yun-Fat was great, playing his 'killer with a conscience' role with his usu...
