I know this thread is a bit late but, I saw it when it first came out in theatres around 3-4months ago, and it was fucking i-n-s-a-n-e.

Any1 check it out and agree? That crazy fight at the end with the cray short, long-haired muay thai guy against the cop and his brother was fucking intense!

Go watch if you have not, it is a must-watch for any action movie fans...

Hollywood needs to take a lesson from these guys

great fight scenes in this flick.
if you like to watch people get killed, then this is a must see.

dissapointed with this.... second half drags on a bit and there were far far to many quick cuts throughout the film, so typical of action films

who thought that to make an action sequence look better, you should cover it up with quick cuts so you can barely see anything?

I haven't seen this yet but Asian Cinema don't typically use quick cuts like in American action films

just watched it last week, pretty good film but it was the dubbed version that I saw. One with subtitles is probably better

loved the film. the knife action was great

the U.S Release has both dubbed and subtitle version
also the movie cost like 1000 $ to make not really but it was low cost and its making big bucks

Does your version have the commentary? I don't think my Blu Ray version does but I gotta recheck.

What's with Keeanu doing all these Asian-based films?

Man of Tai Chi, The 47 Ronin, etc...

I don't got a problem with it because I like Keeanu, but he's of English-Hawaiian-Irish-Portugese-Chinese decent....

yet he's getting all of these Asian roles, I mean he "kinda" looks Asian, but not as far to the point I'd consider him for an authentic role or whatever.

Oh well, no complaints, just a point I thought to address....
