There are two parts of the movie. First is the cat and mouse game between Crawford and Rogue. Crawford does some investigating. Tracks down some leads. He even runs into Rogue one time who has a new identity. The other part is Rogue’s scheming. He leaves the Yakuza and goes to work for the Triads but its quickly apparent that he has his own plans. Can he carry them out before Crawford catches him?
This was also an interesting role for Li. Stratham by this time had become solely an action hero. Li’s Lone however mostly used a gun. There were only a few martial arts sequences until the end.
There’s also an unexpected twist at the end.
All together this makes War a very effective action flick.
i'm saying things out loud like: okey dokey! (translation: WHAT THE ***BLEEP***!!!)
i'm beginning to sigh heavily, which is NEVER a good sign when i'm watching a movie!
i'm wondering, in frustration, HOW, WHY, WHO,WHERE, WHEN, ARE THEY SERIOUS???!!!
when i saw the lineup for this movie i said out loud: "OH, HELL YEAH!", as in THIS is going to be good!!!
47 minutes in and i'm saying in my head: "oh hell no!", as in OH HELL NO THIS IS HORRIBLEHORRIBLEHORRIBLE!!!!
should i continue watching?
NAW! i won't because if a movie has not caught my interest within the first 15-20 minutes, it's not going to!
as much as i luv jason, gonna ... just ... pretend i never started watching this movie because it's just ... uuuggghh!!!!!
3 stars ONLY because i'm a jason fan!, NOT because this movie is good, which, 47 minutes in, it most definitely AIN'T nowhere near good!!!
I FRICKIN' LOVE AMAZON!!!
(and...uumm...Jeff Bezos too!!!)
Why Jet Li is playing both sides against the other is clearly explained in the last 15 minutes of the movie, and it's a huge unexpected twist. There's no mystery whatsoever why he did what he did once you find out who he is, with clues throughout the movie before that. Just had to throw that out there because there's no way to miss the 'why' part.
Now on to the movie....
Was very hesitant about buying this one. Not because of Statham, but because of Li. I'd gotten the Chan/Li movie and was very disappointed in the collaboration. Now we have the action heroes of Statham and Li...
Good combination. The storyline holds up, the action is great, the cars are to die for, and the confusion about what the heck is going on is constant. Basic plot: two good guys, one is killed by the psycho ROGUE. The good guy left (Statham) is all-consumed with the need to hunt him down, even tho it costs him his marriage and normal life. Meanwhile, bad guy Rogue (Li) is playing Chinese Mafia warlords against one another to the point where no one knows why or where he is headed in this. When the light finally dawns (close to the end) it will be a shocker. For those who claim they guessed somewhere in the middle, don't believe it.
I liked it. I liked the supporting cast, which was very good. (Kudos to the casting director) This little gem will keep your attention for the full run of the movie. Buy, rent, borrow, whatever
By the way, Stathams' car was pretty darn awesome, too!
Movie played and I am happy! Taa Daa!
