In this brutal police thriller, an FBI agent (Jason Statham) has his hands full when the legendary assassin (Jet Li) who murdered his partner (Terry Chen) returns to San Francisco and sparks a war between the absent leader of the Japanese Yakuza (Ryo Ishibashi), who is represented locally by his ruthless daughter (Devon Aoki), and the very present commander of the Chinese Triads in the city (John Lone). Philip G. Atwell's noisy, overblown film offers some interesting plot developments, but ultimately tries to substitute sound and fury for genuine drama. Extensive violence with gore, torture and mutilation, rear and upper female nudity, frequent rough and crude language, and occasional profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
