For the fan boys
This is a man's film. They really should be selling brats and beer in
the theaters for attendees. Anyone going to a film with jet Li or Jason
Statham should know what to expect. Going to a film with the two of
them and you know there is going to be blood, violence, killing,
action, noise, and an eventual winner. If this is not your cup of tea,
go see The Nanny Diaries and leave this to the fan boys.
This is not their first film together. They both appeared in The One
six years ago. This time they are the leads and on opposing sides -
Statham an FBI agent and Li a contract killer. The action takes place
in the middle of a Yakuza war in San Francisco.
Fans of Jet Li will not be disappointed. he still has all the moves
even if he is 47; however, he does rely more on swords and guns, and
other weapons in this film. Statham is Li's equal and gives as good as
he gets. The story has an interesting twist which i will not give a
clue on as it is a major plot point.
Interesting entertainment by girls in cages at the Yakuza club. I
thought that went out in the 60s, but it was a nice diversion.
This film is red meat. It has no pretensions of quality and dialog is
minimal, which goes along with the story. If you are a fan, you will be
entertained. If you are not, why are you there?.

A Nutshell Review: Rogue Assassin
War undergoes one of those unnecessarily title changes for this part of
the world, naming itself after Jet Li's assassin character Rogue.
Billed as "The Ultimately Martial Arts Duel of the Year", the person
who wrote that blurb for Rogue Assassin obviously hasn't seen many
movies, or martial arts ones for that matter, or is plain lying through
the teeth. You'd half expect that pitting two action stars against one
another will instantly mean box office success by pulling in fans of
both Jet Li and Jason Statham, but it's a downright insult as you don't
see any punches pulled between the two for 99% of the time.
Jason Statham actually starred opposite Jet Li in the movie called The
One back in 2001, where Li had no decent cinematic opponent to spar
with, and had to do so with himself, assisted by CGI. With his movies
like Crank and The Transporter doubles becoming guilty pleasures (read:
just Statham kicking up a storm without a reasonable story to boot),
I'd actually come to enjoy his work choreographed by Corey Yuen (who
also does the action choreography here), together with other ensemble
movies he starred in, like The Italian Job and Snatch, amongst others.
It's no doubt I'm a fan, but in Rogue Assassin, all he had to show off
his fighting chops, was a sequence in a ubiquitous teahouse.
But Jet Li fared no better too. His Hollywood foray had been more
misses than hits, either playing assassins or cops like in Kiss of the
Dragon, or be stuck in roles that require little dialogue and only to
look bad-ass, like in Lethal Weapon 4, and Cradle 2 the Grave. Or the
easiest of all, forget dialogue and kick around like a mad dog - no
offense but that's what he really did in Unleashed (which I thought the
notion of it all was rather degrading for an action star). Nonetheless
he goes back to a story on warring factions again ala Romeo Must Die,
but this time, it's not between boyz in the hood, but putting Japanese
Yakuza and Hong Kong Triads in the streets of San Francisco.
As I mentioned earlier, there's nothing martial arts here. Everything
is guns, guns and more guns, with a complimentary sword fight put in,
but not between the touted leads. The action sequences, from fights to
chases to stunts all looked rather tired and rehashed, with absolutely
nothing that will make you go "wow, that's nothing I've seen before".
Statham and Li share no more than 5 minutes together in the same scene,
and only at best a minute bashing each other up, in the dark, in a
narrow dock warehouse, before launching into more verbal mumbo jumbo.
Everything here is a caricature, and not even a clich.
