when he wins a fight against the will of the Russian Mafia and
accidentally kills his opponent. The Russian mobsters kill his wife and
the alcoholic Luke wanders on the streets and hostels with no objective
in life. One day, Han Jiao asks Mei to memorize a long number and soon
the Russian Mafia abducts the girl from the Chinese mobs. She escapes
from the mobsters she is chased by the Russians; by the corrupt
detectives from the NYPD; and by the Triads. When Luke sees the girl
fleeing from the Russian mobs in the subway, he protects the girl and
discovers that the number she had memorized is the combination of a safe
where the Triads keep 30 million dollars.
A good Statham movie is always welcome ...
Simple story ...
Tight action scenes ...
Cool dialogues ....
And a ice-cold looking Statham ....
What more do you need for an entertaining movienight ?
It shouldn't always be a smart, thoughtful, highly intellectual put together film, huh.
My rating 6/10
