The story revolves around Alan(Donnie Yen), a retired cop who's as tough as they come. He's being sued by his wife for divorce. As soon as he's leaving he stumbles upon an attempted robbery of some dirty money. The lawyer who was hired by his wife(Rosamund Kwan) implicates him in the murder. She also becomes wrapped up in the case and they join forces with another lawyer(David Wu) to bring down the real culprit(Robin Shou). It's a pretty good story for an action movie.
This movie really comes into it's own in the fighting sequences. Donnie Yen shows off some good moves against the common thugs, but his fights with the main villains are awe-inspiring. He gets into an epic sword fight with John Salvitti. Then he goes up against the muscular Michael Woods(3rd time on screen these 2 fight). Then it ends with a showdown with Robin Shou who shows some good skills in this movie. We also see David Wu fight Robin Shou.
If you love good martial arts flicks that are more realism than fantasy pick this up. You will not be disappointed. Donnie Yen is in top form here and I'm surprised he hasn't done more work in the States. But I guess that's a good thing as most martial arts movies made in the States tend to be awful.
The only real questions to my mind with these films is; is the action any good, and is there any originality in it? To both of these the answer is a resounding yes, with the sword fight providing the standout moment. Anyone who enjoyed Donnie Yen's more recent work, such as Flashpoint, should enjoy this.
