  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
FBI Agent Jack Crawford (Statham) is obsessed with avenging the death of his partner murdered by the notorious assassin known only as Rogue (Li). As Crawford sets out for revenge, the elusive trigger-man sparks an all-out War between Asian gangs

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 DVD can show a somewhat hazy picture. Black levels are solid, but the entire image can have a somewhat foggy appearance. Shadow delineation is fairly good. Whites occasionally can bloom, but details in the brightest portions of the image can look good. Resolution is somewhat lacking, although there are times when the picture can look very nicely detailed. Fleshtones generally look accurate. The image can look digitized and pixilated at times, but edge enhancement is not much of a problem. (Danny Richelieu)
