This movie gathers a lot of great people in one place. Not great actors per say, but people that I like. Martial artists, rappers, comedians. It's an action movie with all the explosions, chases, thievery, awkward or comical situations, drama, romance, hate, vengeance, fighting that you would expect. There's also something valuable that everybody wants to lay their hands on, and I've watched the scene where Jet Li 'falls' from balcony to balcony a few times trying to figure out how much of it is real and how much of it isn't. It looked so real I had to look it up; turns out I'm still no wiser. Google doesn't say.
Regardless if the stunts are real or not, this was a great movie. People say DMX can't act, and they are probably right. He's good at being mad but not much else, but I don't see it ruining the rest of the movie. In a way it defines his character, and at least he always looks very intent on whatever he does. I'm not saying so just cause I'm a DMX fan, cause actually.. I'm not. :) Otherwise, there's great coordination in the stunts (and a lot of stunts), a lot of fighting, so many other explosive elements combined it's arguable too much... but then again I like a movie where the action never stops. This is one of those.
This is the second time I watched the movie; first time I review, so the score is aftermathically a...
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
