A second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit, Luke Wright lives a numbing life of routine beatings and chump change...until the day he blows a rigged fight. Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever, leaving Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute, haunted by guilt, and tormented by the knowledge that he will always be watched, and anyone he develops a relationship with will also be killed. But when he witnesses a frightened twelve-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action...and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war. Mei, he discovers, is no ordinary girl, but an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for the Triads as a "counter." He discovers she holds in her memory a priceless numerical code that the Triads, the Russian mob and a corrupt faction of the NYPD will kill for. Realizing he's the only person Mei can trust, Luke tears a swath through the city's brutal underworld to save an innocent girl's life...and perhaps even redeem his own.

Statham sees a young girl named Mei pursued by tough guys from the Russian mob and decides to intervene. He does and kills and maims all those who seek the girl. But with the Chinese Triads also seek the girl as well as the crooked NYPD. All that stands between her and certain death is the Jason Statham. This was a great movie. Statham's best acting to date. The film was written very well and actually has much more plot than it really needs. For instance, the guy Statham dispatches in the end was not needed at all. Mei could have been retrieved another way. To me it was an unnecessary character that overburdened the film. But that's my quibble.
The end of the film sets things ripe for a sequel. The Russians? The Triads? What about the crooked mayor of New York and his perfidious cronies? Let's pray they have a sequel with Mei grown up or a teenager. She's incredible! A super genius and when she grows up would no doubt become a millionaire with her great talents. Unfortunately this film did not do well in the box office. Indeed, I don't even remember it being in the theatres. It came and went so fast as to not even leave a trace of its passing. Nevertheless, as Michael Cast said: This is a great film. I'm the 1546th person to review the film and I give it Five Stars.

Definitely worth a watch.

This film is full of great fight scenes and action throughout but as it is backed up by a strong story the film manages to work really well and deliver something well worth watching.
First of all a good story with bags of originality...
The Action was good but not brilliant...when a fight scene starts and a fight is on...the camera work decides to shake and twist etc..trying to be arty..i wish i could see a straight forward, straight on fight scene from time to time..
There was a lot of subtitles in this film..not impressed because i do have sight issues..
This movie was definetly a step up for Statham on the acting front...maybe with age he's trying to keep his acting options open...not sure that that will work for him..he is a kick ass action hero not an actor or somebody you could put in a shakespere play..
This film was good dont get me wrong..but was it special...and the answer to that is 'not quite'
In no time at all he finds himself in the middle of a gang war with corrupt cops (his former colleagues) thrown in for good measure who are trying to play one side against the other. All in all it's another better than average film of this genre in you like that sort of thing.
Also the Amazon trader service was good arrived on time and the Dvd was like new no scratches at all will deff be using these guys again.
