I love serious Jackie Chan. I love myself some hammy Brosnan. I like Martin Campbell working his slow and meticulous style on a trashy paperback novel with a dash of action. It's not flashy, but it works.
There's some problematic stuff ("Torture will give us the answers we need!"), but there's also Jackie getting into a few short brawls that are compelling and painful looking (for his stunt double). It's the good stuff.
