Jackie Chan is an international icon. His roles in both Chinese and American cinema has cemented his status as a master of the martial arts film and of his talent as an actor. Here he plays Quan Ngoc Minh a Chinese immigrant living in England with his daughter. When his daughter is killed he goes on a mission to find the people responsible, which puts him at odds with Liam Hennessy (Pierce Brosnan), a former terrorist who now brokers peace between the British government and the IRA. The brutal battle that develops between these two men extends across the country as both men seek to uncover the motive behind the attack, while avoiding one another’s vengeful tactics. The film is surprisingly warm and challenges the methods of the British Government in stopping terrorism.
Jackie Chan is as good as ever and his age has allowed him more depth and development.
A very enjoyable film and a good way to spend a couple hours, I give this one…
3.5 out of 5
