Jet Li fights himself to nu metal with terrible special effects. Jason Statham does Jason Statham things. Not too shabby.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I'm kind of at a loss here. This film is pretty much the definition of insanity. There's the juxtaposition of Nick trying to make his community a better place and Blake sword-fighting Jesse "The Body" Ventura in prison. Then the second act takes an incredibly dark and uncomfortable turn before kicking the insanity into overdrive for the final act. I believe my friend TwoPunchPikey described this film as "the richest man's JCVD movie" and he might be right.
I have never felt such a sense of dread and hopelessness while watching a movie. Maybe it's because we're living in a pandemic, but this hit especially hard. The special effects are incredible for an early 80's movie and are absolutely disgusting. While not a traditional "whodunnit", it's still the best you'll ever see.
