  • It's a high-gloss version of a Hong Kong action picture, made in America but observing the exuberance of a genre where surfaces are everything. show more

  • The plot is so thin that it's not really worth thinking about, but director Antoine Fuqua and cinematographer Peter Lyons Collister have put so much effort into the feel and appearance of the movie that it held my attention. show more

  • The story has more violence than brains, but Hong Kong action star Chow makes an interestingly moody impression in his first Hollywood role. show more
