The Hong Kong invasion of Western cinema continues with this action-adventure in which French writer-producer Luc Besson (Diva, La Femme Nikita, The Professional) teams up with Chinese director Corey Yuen (in his first English-language feature). British tough-guy Jason Statham (Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Mean Machine) plays an underworld gofer whose job is to deliver questionable packages for crime kingpins, with no questions asked. When one of his jobs turns out to be a beautiful woman (Qi Shu), this bulked-up mercenary decides to go all gallant on us and save the girl. That’s about it for plot: The rest of the film is all heated chases and shoot-outs that are extremely well-staged but ultimately as tedious as a video game.
