Just in from watching Rogue Assassin with Jet Li and Jason Statham. The movie is known as War in other countries.

It's the typical action-packed movie you'd come to expect from these two actors. Jason brings the same arrogance and violence from Transporter and Italian Job into his role here playing a FBI agent and Jet, well, what else would you expect? He plays a hired assassin and gets involved in the Chinese Triads and the Japanese Yakuza.

The movie has REALLY cool cars, with Jet driving a Spyker C8 Spyder throughout the film and Statham sporting a Mustang. There are shots of a few Lambos, Ferraris and Maseratis. The movie has a pretty cool car chase with the two of them going head to head in a decent battle. One would naturally assume the the Italian has the advantage, but the brutal muscle of the Yank gives it a run for its money in the traffic filled streets.

Lots of swords, pistols, snipers and automatic machine guns.

The movie is definitely nothing new, but it does have a fairly cool twist at the end. The action sequences are very well choreographed, and I am almost certain that John Wu himself couldn't have done it better.

Definitely worth a watch if you like it rough!

    I love Jet Li long time, The One is probably one of my all time favourites ever.

    Yeah, he has this cool arrogance about him. I love the fact that he never smiles and has this reeeal gangsta walk!

    cool, sounds like weekend entertainment where one doesn't have to think too hard.

    can you tell me why a movie would have different names in different countries... i never got that.

    Actually, a lot of thinking is involved. Should i get the large Coke or the extra large Coke?

    Astros, Whispers or Smarties?

    No clue why the movies have different names. But I assume it must a very good reason, because it requires two marketing budgets!
