Action stars Jet Li and Jason Statham square off in this routine crime thriller, the debut feature of hip-hop video director Philip G. Atwell. The story involves an FBI agent in San Francisco (Statham) whose partner is killed by a mysterious assassin and burned to a crisp in a house fire; three years later the assassin (Li) resurfaces, leaving a trail of dead plastic surgeons in his wake, and begins conspiring against his yakuza and triad bosses (John Lone, Ryo Ishibashi). Critics are regularly admonished not to give away surprise endings, but I've got three words for the screenwriters: DNA, dental records. With Devon Aoki, Luis Guzman, and Saul Rubinek. R, 103 min.
