This was one of Jet Li's last and best action films. Has anyone here seen it? I'm posting it for discussion here because of its lesser known status desipte its very strong Double Dragon influences.

There is a giant, black & bald abobo type with a powerful straight punch combo, a Chin-Sei over the edge veteran martial artist type, and of course a Billy/Jimmy fighting duo who specializes in team combos. Interestingly, all these characters are villains, and they have no real role in the story other than to violently beat people to a pulp.

Still, it's a great movie in its own right and may even offer some action scene influences for future development of future Double Dragon projects...

I have seen the movie. It has been a while, but it was a great movie.

Probably jet li's best movie. I especially love the fight against the Twins and his whole pressure point techniques with the needles was pretty dope. They need to make a sequel to that I would go to see it.

Great popcorn movie. His first American Lead Role Movie and it did pretty well. The other Jet Li movie you should check out if you haven't already is Unleashed. Kind of depressing, but great acting for an action/drama. Li plays a character with a very child like intellect, but trained to attack like a dog; hence the real title of movie: Danny the Dog. Morgan Freeman plays a blind pianist.
